How it works

To successfully deposit your cheque:
1. Tap the DEPOSIT icon in the app
2. Select an account to deposit
3. Photograph the cheque on both sides
4. Confirm the deposit details

Once you tap confirm, the cheque is immediately submitted for processing and the funds will appear in your account*.

Getting started

To use Vancity Mobile Deposit, you need to:

  • Download the free app from App Store℠ or Google Play™.
  • If you don't have an online banking password, get one at your nearest Vancity community branch.
  • Have an active MEMBER CARD® debit card that allows for deposits.

Things to remember

Before you photograph your cheque:

  • On the back, write “For deposit only to [your 12 digit Financial Account number].” Then add your signature.
  • Ensure the cheque is in a well lit area that it is shadow-free, in focus, and centred in the frame. Remember to take a photo of the front and back.

After you deposit the cheque:

  • Write "Deposited" on the front of the cheque and keep it on file for a verification period of at least 45 days. You must destroy the cheque within 120 days after the initial deposit.
  • Check your statements to ensure the deposit was made correctly. If you see any errors or omissions, please bring the original cheque to the nearest Vancity branch.
