What is Remote Deposit Anywhere?
Remote Deposit Anywhere (RDA) allows you to make deposits straight from your smartphone. It utilizes the camera app to take snapshots of the front and back of the check to create a deposit for you. You can do this anytime or anywhere, whether you are on vacation or just don't want to leave your house.

8. Can accounts be added by the customer after RDA is set up and already being used?
No, when you, as the customer, set up RDA, one of the screens you come by is the screen where you must check all of the accounts you want to be able to remote deposit into. Once you have selected these accounts and moved to the next screen of the set up process, you cannot add new accounts to the RDA function yourself. You must call the bank and have them do that for you.
9. Can I use RDA for a business account?
At this time, we are not allowing the use of RDA with business accounts. In the future we will be offering RDA for businesses, it is called Micro-business RDA. Check back with us in the future if you are a business!
