Cheque mate: Starling Bank launches mobile cheque deposits to make banking from home easier

  • First digital-only bank to offer mobile cheque depositing

  • Available for all customers from next week

  • Helps small businesses and individuals do their banking better from home

Starling Bank is launching mobile cheque deposits. The Starling mobile app which works across iOS and Android uses device cameras to capture an image of the cheque and ‘reads’ the details to pay the money into an account. It’s simple, convenient and secure.

Cheque imaging will be available to all Starling customers from today with UK personal, joint, sole trader or limited company business accounts. The service works for all cheques of up to £500. Customers will still have the option to use a free postal service to process any cheque or cheques over £500 by popping their cheques in the post for free.

Anne Boden, CEO and founder of Starling Bank said: “There is no better time to launch mobile cheque imaging than now as it enables customers to do even more from their smartphone, at home – and with thousands of cheques deposited with us every month we know that this will help our customers.”

Please note customers need to have the latest version of the Starling Bank app in order to use cheque imaging.
