Fifth Third Bank Thursday introduced mobile deposit functions for iPhone and Android users.
The service is now available in all Fifth Third markets.
“We continue to see customers choose channels such as mobile to manage their finances. The enhancements we’ve made since introducing mobile banking four years ago — including the introduction of mobile deposit — reflect this shift in consumer preference and expectations,” said Larry McClanahan, director of digital delivery for Fifth Third, in a statement.
To use the mobile deposit service, customers need to update or download the Fifth Third Mobile Banking application, the company said. Customers then choose the “Deposit Check” icon, take a photo of the front and back of the check, choose the account to deposit the check and confirm the amount. A confirmation will display once the item is accepted.
Customers can do a mobile deposit until 8 p.m. Eastern time to process the check the same day, Fifth Third said.
Fifth Third launched mobile banking in 2009. More information is online at www.53.com/mobilebanking.
