  1. Are Deluxe Checks Out of Date?

    Over the last couple decades, many new ways to pay for goods and services have emerged. The most notable one is transferring funds directly from one party to another. This can be done quite efficiently today using one of two methods:

    1. Paypal
    A highly popular solution to making payments, one large downside of Paypal is the transaction costs. If you send a significant amount of cash ($1000 or more) expect the fees to add up. I recently sent $2500 for some work that was done on a home, and if I recall correctly, transaction costs alone accounted for something like $29. On smaller transactions, you might not feel the impact of transaction fees, but be aware that over time, such fees will add up and affect how much money you end up keeping.

    2. Cryptocurrencies
    Digital currencies like Bitcoin offer transaction costs that are close to zero. The reason for this is that Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment method, meaning that the middleman, such as Paypal, is completely cut out of the picture. But the problem is that Bitcoin has not seen widespread adoption, and finding a vendor that will accept Bitcoin as a form of payment remains a challenge.

    Because of the reasons cited above, I believe that using traditional checks purchased from checking companies like Deluxe continues to be the most sensible solution. For businesses and financial institutions, Deluxe Checks have been the product of choice, due to the high quality of checks and competitive prices, especially when consumers us Deluxe Coupon Codes. Deluxe also offers discounted checks that are high customizable, allowing companies to use high quality checks while still maintaining a strong sense of identity.

    If you want to stay on the cutting edge, one thing you can do is invest in some of Deluxe's newer products such as their high security checks and electronic checks. The electronic checks, called eChecks, are especially compelling. The current product offered by Deluxe allows you to send checks via email. The recipient then prints the checks in order to use them.
