Send a Check
 last updated:

Send a check is done by passing the required account id, contact id, type, amount and description. Notes:
- Currently, only physical check ("type": "physical") is supported
- description field data goes into the Memo line on the check (maximum of 40 characters)
- Response is a transfer object

Here are the steps to send a physical check in the US:

1. On the source account (the account from which the payment is being sent), Create a Contact with the Contact Name and Address of the person receiving the check.

2. Send a Check using the endpoint below with the amount and description to the contact ID containing the destination address details.

3. The funds are debited from the source account, and the contact receives the cashier's check (from Solid) in about 7 days.
