Check Recording allows you to capture a record of all check payments through Pushpay, ensuring that your donors’ complete giving history is all in one place. Although the payment is recorded, you will still need to make a physical deposit at your bank.
Additionally, if you choose to enter in the giver’s email address, they will be sent an emailed receipt that will then prompt them to create a Pushpay account.
Recording a Check
- Go to Gift Entry
- Scan the check, or enter the givers name, into the Giver's details field
After scanning the check number, the check details will be validated. Please note that the check number will need to be entered in before auto-matching is triggered, as it is used to identify whether a check has already been recorded or is bank-issued.
If a matching Pushpay account is found, their details will be filled in. If no match is found, you will need to add a new giver. Any subsequent checks from that donor will auto-match upon entry.
For bank-issued checks (bill pay), if the check matches more than one giver we'll give you the opportunity to choose the right person or add a new one.
You can capture the check number without having to enter it manually by using a check reader. The check reader is simply plugged in via USB and does not require any additional software or drivers. Pushpay supports the following models of check reader:
- Magtek MiniMICR (Model: 22523009) (USB Keyboard Emulation)
- Magtek MICRSafe (Model: 22551002)
|Please Note: These scanners are only compatible with our Check Recording tool and will not work with our Check Deposit feature. Please reference our Supported Scanners and System Requirements for Check Deposit article to view a list of compatible check scanners.|
