Why you should #ChequeLess?

Cheques have a cost
The cost to use Cheques includes transaction fees as well as administrative overheads to issue, track and reconcile the transaction.
Cheques take time
The transaction settlement is not immediate. Cheques deposited with the banks typically takes 2 days to process.
Cheques are inconvenient
Instances of damaged cheques, incorrect signatures can result in delayed settlement of cheque transactions, hindering cash flow management for businesses.
