    Hey everybody! I’m currently working on an agricultural website for my brother and now I’m looking for a plugin that will open up a person’s mobile app so they can pay a bill by taking a front/back photo of their check using their phone.

    That money will then go into the businesses account to complete the transaction.

    Make the plugin merge with your invoice plugins ie: WP-Invoice and have an auto-email the invoice would be great. Currently, I have a Stripe and Paypal option.

    Those farmers could then pay their big bills from home with a check.

    “Now the bank probably should have the option to pay bills, with a check, on their phone in the first place maybe. I talked to RBC they said my idea will be looked at for the future. Claim it’s their idea of course. lol”

    Thanks for any info.

    Hi there,

    I can’t think that any bank would accept a photograph of a check as a valid payment, as there is no way at all to verify that it’s genuine and hasn’t been doctored in any way.

    eChecks are created in digital form from the very beginning, and have to be issued by a registered payment processor like Stripe, or by a bank that offers its clients eCheck functionality, in order to be valid.

    You can find more info on eChecks and how they work here:

    That said, you’re posting in the support forums for the hosting provider WordPress.com. We are not the same thing as the open source WordPress software you’re using for your site, and cannot help you with plugins for that software in this forum.

    For help with the WordPress software you’re using, please ask here:

    Ya was kinda shooting in the dark asking people in a WordPress Ideas forums hoping maybe somebody who uses WordPress may know of some WordPress plugin that they use. What second better place then a WordPress.com site? :) I will then venture off to the .org area.

    Actually looks like this is the ‘ideas’ section, and not the support, of the forums and was looking for insight from people if they had heard of such a plugin that can work with WordPress.

    That said, RBC bank has an app that has the ability to take front/back pictures of checks for the purpose of depositing in your bank account. Thought maybe there was a way to pay a bill.

    Checks are pretty much phasing out but there are still those stubborn farmers that still use them. :)

    This is the Ideas forum, which means it’s a place for feature requests, but also specifically the ideas forum on WordPress.com, which is a hosting provider and not the same thing as the “WordPress” you’re talking about.

    We can’t help with this in any of the forums on WordPress.com.
