Yeah I take them also, I get 20 or so a month. I have a system though. Its simple:
Check come in and I deposit checks on Monday and Thursday.
I do the online back verification on Monday and Thursday the following week for those deposits.
I haven't had a bounced one yet. (knock on wood)
I ship check orders on Tuesdays and Fridays following the week I check online. All other payment orders I ship daily.
I think checks with banks are 5 business days to turn. So 5 check a week itn't that bad to track.
That's my system, Rick.
