What’s the best way to get a good picture of my check for a mobile check deposit using the Green Dot app?​

Here are some tips: 

1.  Place your check on a flat surface with a dark background and good lighting.

2.  Make sure all 4 corners of the check are in the camera view.

3.  Focus your camera by holding your phone steady, tap the area on the screen that you’d like the camera to focus on, and snap the photo.

Note: Some phones automatically store photos taken on the device. For security reasons, please ensure photos of your check aren’t saved to your phone or online storage.

For information on cashing a check using the Ingo® Money App, cashing and depositing a check at Walmart or cashing and depositing a check at a financial service center (location offering check cashing, payday loans, money transfers), please refer to those FAQs. ​
