you a ChecksByNet check requires a web page with the ChecksByNet link on it. This will
point to CrossCheck's server with your store name. To print these checks, we will supply a

Microsoft Windows 95+ and Microsoft Windows NT 4.0+. This program is
simple to install. Before printing any of your customer's checks, you will need a
printer, check paper, and an Internet connection running Internet
Explorer 4.0 or higher.

CrossCheck's server will gather and verify your customer's check information securely.
When the customer is finished writing the check, we will display an image of their
check before agreeing to process it. CrossCheck's server will then determine if the check
is valid. If the check is approved, the check will be written to a file under your store
number which can be accessed with the CrossCheck Print program we provide you.
8. What is asked of my
customer when their check is declined?
When a customer's check is
declined, we cannot provide any information about the check. To protect their privacy, we
encourage them to write to CrossCheck's Consumer Inquiry Department. We provide them the
address to write to and indicate what information needs to be stated in the letter.
