In April 2020, less than three weeks after national lockdown was announced, Starling Bank launched in-app cheque deposits for personal, joint and business accounts. The feature enables customers to take photos of the front and back of a cheque (under £500) and submit it through the Starling app. Cheques over £500 can be deposited with Starling's free-post service. Once received, Team Starling processes the cheque and the customer receives a notification when the money lands in their account. In-app cheque deposits cut out the need to go to a bank branch or post office. Starling customers can bank from home or on the go - wherever they choose.
