Online Check Writer

Software for managing payments and accounting operations

About Online Check Writer

Online Check Writer is a cloud-based software designed to help businesses manage payment processing, accounts payables and receivables, and other financial operations via a unified portal. The platform enables organizations to create and print business checks using a drag-and-drop interface and receive one-time or recurring payments through real-time automated clearing house (ACH) transfers.

Online Check Writer allows enterprises to generate and print multiple banks’ deposit slips, track their status, and automatically reconcile the data. Administrators can create and share custom invoices with clients via email and receive payments using one-time links or HTML forms. Accountants can also aggregate data from different banks and gain visibility into the checks and deposits through automated statements.

Online Check Writer accumulates reports for check drafts, cash expenses, deposits, and other financial transactions and categorizes the data by payees, bank account, category, or other criteria for reference. It also supports integration with various third-party applications such as QuickBooks, Zoho Books, Zapier, BitPay, and more.

OCW has met all my payroll and check printing needs.

OCW has met all my payroll and check printing needs.

Pros

Online Check Writer, or simply OCW, is a web-based platform that has expanded from its orignal purpose of creating and printing checks. Users will find that the platform still excels in its original function, and should not be faced with too steep of a learning curve when they start out with the easy-to-use web platform. OCW has continued to develop and improve the check printing features, placing them first-in-class for check printing, while maintaining reasonable fees.
Today's OCW offers far more than simply check printing. They have vastly expanded their offerings to include integration with all popular accounting software, added a powerful payroll management feature, and even integrated business banking accounts, payment processing, and ACH features such as direct deposit.

While the customer service can be difficult to reach and often subpar in the assistance offered, users who have some accounting familiarity or those with time enough to employ self-help features, will find the services offered to be unparalleled at the price offered. OCW is a true contender in a banking and accounting all-in-one solution for small businesses.

Cons

The customer service is minimally responsive and does not follow-through.

Like I said, it was a great piece of software when we started using it. I've asked for the zil account and accompanying wallet to be removed because we are a nonprofit, only the board can make a decision about creating new accounts. But it's been many months and they haven't done it yet, so I'm pretty sure they never will. It's so frustrating, they even send us monthly zil statements. We're probably going to switch back to our payroll system for ACH, because it's too confusing the way it's set up now.

Pros

I used to like it much better before we added ACH. The check writing worked great, it was intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

The user interface changed without warning a few months ago from something that was really easy to use to something that doesn't even fit on my computer screen and I have to reduce my magnification to 90% to see it all. I have to hunt all over the place to find various features that were all previously in one place. At least they should have given us some warning, I was on vacation and the admin using it was texting me that she couldn't figure out how to send ACH anymore.

When we set up ACH they created a zil account for us which we didn't ask for and didn't want. It generated an automatic wallet that is identically named to our real wallet and it's been so confusing. It's unclear to me what enable wallet bypass means in the two different places it can be entered, both in the wallet settings and when we actually send an ach payment. We're always afraid we're doing something wrong.

At the time it seemed easier to use and to give other people access to check writing. It has changed a lot since then.

Easy to use and can be used anywhere

Reviewed on 25/7/2022

Pros

You can easily know when, where and how much you have used at any time, even if you do not record separately, and it is easy to use and can be used anywhere.

Cons

Occasionally, when there is a change in the position of what I have designed, I have to go back into the design and adjust it.
