With Starling, you can deposit cheques straight from our app. Say goodbye to queues for bank branches and say hello to quick, simple banking with Starling.
Who’s it for?
Cheque imaging is for all Starling customers with UK personal, joint, sole trader or business current accounts. Whether you’re a small business owner with clients that like to pay by cheque, or someone who has received a birthday cheque, this free feature can help you deposit quickly and easily. Provided that the amount is £500 or less, you’ll be able to deposit it via the Starling app.
How do I deposit a cheque?
To get started, you need to make sure that you’ve got the latest version of the Starling app. To check, go to the app or play store and search for ‘Starling Bank’. If there’s an option to ‘Update’ click that button, if it says ‘Open’, your app is already up to date and you’re good to go.
Once you’ve got the latest version, go to the main menu of your Starling app and tap ‘Deposit Cheques and Cash’. Click ‘Deposit a Cheque’ and follow the onscreen instructions. Cheques must be dated within the last six months.
