As a followup to the recent news that Capital One is buying ING Direct, which was met with mixed reactions, I thought I’d share some positive news about ING Direct…
Mailing checks is sooo 90s – Don’t worry, remote deposit is on the way. It’ll be a dream come true.
And in March, when they were asked if it was still “on the way, ” they replied:
You bet, but still no ETA. Weâ€™re forecasting nothing but smooth sailing once released.
And finally… Earlier this month, when asked again about remote deposit, they hinted that it might be available by the 4th of July:
Let us ease the pain… youâ€™ll be seeing some easier ways to deposit checks before youâ€™re declaring your independence.
As far as I’m concerned, this is great news… I’d love to be able to snap a photo of a check – or at least run it through my scanner – and deposit from afar. As things stand, PayPal is currently the only financial institution that I deal with that allows for remote deposit.
