What is eCheck?
eCheck is also referred to by several names – direct payment, automatic payment or direct debit. It is a method of electronically transferring your bill payments to the bank of the company, in this case Lingo, you have subscribed service to.
What information do I need to provide
when signing up for eCheck?
In order to use electronic checks as a payment option, you will need to supply the bank routing code (also know as the ABA code), the account number, and the name and the address associated with the principal account holder. Lingo will debit your bank account electronically.
Can I use any bank account, personal
or business, in any country?
You can use any personal but not business bank account located at a branch in the U.S., including USVI and Puerto Rico. If your bank does not support electronic checking, then you will need to continue using credit card as a form of payment.
How will I know when a payment is
made or how much was paid?
Your bank account will be debited within 10 days after your invoice period. The transaction, including the amount, will appear on your bank statement.
Can you see how much money I have
in my account?
No. The only account information available to Lingo during the electronic check transaction is the same information on your paper check, such as your name, address, account number, bank routing number, and the amount of the payment.
What if I do not have enough money
in my account when the electronic check is posted?
You are obligated to maintain adequate funds in your account to cover the cost of the payment. If you do not have enough money in your account, your bank can return the transaction and Lingo will charge a fee of up to $25 for insufficient funds. This fee will be reflected on the following invoice.
