Moving Paper Costs Money
Processing checks isn’t that simple. Think about all the work that goes into writing a check. From getting an invoice, to entering it into your accounting system, to printing the check, and then finally mailing it. That process takes time and multiple people touching it, which costs money! And don’t even think about errors and mistakes that are made due to having so many people involved.
Beyong staff costs to make that workflow happen, how about paper and postage? Now, you may say that a stamp doesn’t cost that much, but how about the other costs?
- Paper supplies
- Staff time to process
The cost for each busienss will be different based on how many checks you write and your process. But, those costs up and I’m sure they’re substantial.
