OTCnet Hardware Ordering Overview

Hardware

In order to collect check images and information using the OTCnet Check Capture module, your location will need to use a check scanner for each PC on which you will be using OTCnet. There are two types of scanners: a single check scanner and a batch scanner. There is an optional keypad that can be used for point of sale transactions involving customers submitting payments in person instead of through the mail.

For more detailed information on which scanners are compatible with OTCnet, please refer to the OTCnet System Requirements documentPDF file.
