Less than a month after being acquired by Intuit, Check has announced that it is expanding the beta program for its latest innovation: photo bill pay.
Starting this week, tens of thousands of Android users will have the opportunity to take Check’s photo bill pay technology for a trial run. The company hopes to have its photo bill pay solution available on all platforms by the end of the year.
How does Check’s photo bill pay work? Start with an Android smartphone, an installed Check app, and an unpaid bill. Users open the camera icon on the app, and then take a photo of the bill with their smartphone. The next screen provides the user with some basic information, as well as a scanned copy of the bill.
