Ingo – The Good Funds Network is also the first mobile remote deposit network for prepaid cards that gives consumers access to money in minutes from any type of check from a mobile phone. Consumers can now download a mobile application, enroll with Ingo, load their eligible cards into the wallet, and push any approved check to their cards in days for free or in minutes for a fee. One minute it’s a check, a few minutes later it can be money on your prepaid card.
What are Good Funds?
Good Funds are irreversible, ready-to-spend funds. Once Ingo loads the funds to your card, they are ready to spend, and the risk that the check is bad is ours. No deposit reversals, no overdrawn accounts, no hidden fees. But Ingo does reserve the right to recover funds from bad checks if you knew the check was bad when you sent it, if you attempt to cash or deposit it elsewhere, or if you otherwise act illegally or fraudulently.
The check approval process is carried out in-house within Ingo Money enabling a faster approval process when compared to the normal check approval system, but also Ingo Money is taking on the risk of the check on itself. Other benefits that it provides its customers are that of speed, low transaction cost and mobility of checks. Also there are no time limits on the use of this application, so its users can avail cash at anytime in the day 24×7.
Steps to use the Ingo Money Application:
- Download the IngoMoney app onto your smartphone
- Create your profile and enter card details of your Visa prepaid card
- Snap the front and back of any check and use the Ingo Money app to submit the check to Ingo review and approval
- Wait for 7 days and funds would be loaded onto your cards for free, but if you need the money in minutes you need to pay 1% fee for payroll and Government checks and 4% fee for others.
- With this you can now use your Visa prepaid card where ever you want as it has been loaded with funds
- Fee charged: You can choose to access your money in minutes for a 1% or 4% fee, depending on check type, or in 7 days for no fee.
