How do I use the Ingo Money Cash a Check service in the PayPal app?

Cashing a check is secure and easy to use. Log in to your PayPal Mobile app and follow these simple steps:
  1. From your PayPal Mobile home screen, tap Cash a Check.
  2. Enter the check amount, take a picture of the front and back of your endorsed check with your mobile device and tap Next.
  3. Select how quickly you want to have access to your money and click Confirm.
  4. It usually takes a few seconds to review a check for approval, although it can take 3-5 minutes and in rare circumstances, up to an hour to verify enough check information to approve your check.
  5. If your check is approved, you’ll be prompted to write “VOID” across the front of your check and submit another photo showing it has been voided. Do not write “VOID” on your check until you are prompted to do so, after you receive confirmation that your check was approved.
  6. Once finalized, you’ll see a confirmation page verifying the amount of the credit and when the money will be available in your PayPal account.
