Multi Party Payments


Verified Bank Account Needed

In order to be able to send checks, you need to have a verified bank account in the Checkbook system. Please refer to the Add a Bank Account section for instructions on how to add a bank account to your profile.

Multi Party Payments


This novel feature enables you to send a multi-party check to up to 5 recipients. All recipients other than the depositor must endorse the check in order for it to be deposited. You can find more details about the endorsing process on the following page.

Recipients instantly receive their check via email and can choose to either deposit the check online or print the check for in-person or mobile deposit.

The API reference for sending a multi-party check can be found in the Checkbook API Reference Guide. The interactive form enables you to test the API endpoint in the Checkbook demo environment directly from the reference page.


curl --request POST \
  --url \
  --header 'accept: application/json' \
  --header 'authorization: d6aa2703655f4ba2af2a56202961ca86:dXbCgzYBMibj8ZwuQMd2NXr6rtvjZ8' \
  --header 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data '{"recipients":[{"name":"User 1","recipient":"[email protected]"},{"name":"User 2","recipient":"[email protected]"}]}'


    "date":"2019-06-10 17:40:32",
    "name":"User 1 and User 2",
        "[email protected]"
        "[email protected]"



The previous request is for the demo environment. You will need to use either the sandbox endpoint if you want to send test checks, or the production endpoint if you want to send real checks.
