Valley Bank is here to help you with all of your business needs, including one of your biggest headaches—returned checks.
Valley Bank’s electronic check recovery service, Re$ubmitIt® significantly reduces the burden of collecting funds from NSF checks, while potentially doubling your recovery rate. You collect more returned checks and get 100% of the face value of all checks that are collected electronically!
How Does Re$ubmitIt® Work?
The Re$ubmitIt® electronic check recovery service handles the collection process discreetly and electronically from beginning to end, via the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network for re-presentment directly to the check writer’s bank account.
Returned checks are sent from Valley Bank to Re$ubmitIt®, where eligible checks are converted into electronic items for re-presentment to the check writer’s bank account for collection.
The electronic check file is processed and strategically timed for re-presentation. Presenting checks at proven “smart dates” improves the chance of collection.
If the item is not recovered on the first electronic re-presentment, it is re-cued for a second electronic re-presentment (third total). If this third presentment fails, the check can be sent to Re$ubmitIt’s FREE secondary collections, or the check can be sent back to you.
Upon settlement, 100% of the face value of the check is reimbursed to you automatically. The check writer’s account is charged a state-regulated collection fee to cover the cost of collection.
To be Eligible for Electronic Recovery, a Returned Check Must:
Be a personal check to a business (not business to business)
Be under $2,500
Be less than 180 days old from date of transaction
Cannot have been already submitted twice, either electronically or by paper draft.
What Happens to Ineligible Checks?
Returned items that are less than $2,500 and ineligible for electronic re-presentment are re-submitted to the check writer's account as a paper draft, subject to eligibility requirements. Items greater than $2,500, are returned to the business.

Zero Balance Account
A zero balance account (ZBA) allows balances from multiple sub-accounts to be automatically concentrated into a single master account. Funds are transferred electronically by the Bank each business night from the sub-account to the master account for automatic concentration. ZBAs eliminate the need to transfer funds manually, thereby reducing account balance requirements and increasing the amount of usable cash in your company's operating account.
ZBAs are also popular for disbursement accounts, such as company payroll accounts linked to an operating account. ZBAs automatically link multiple Valley Bank checking accounts together, thereby eliminating the need to make manual transfers between the accounts.
(NOT FDIC INSURED)
With an overnight investment sweep, Valley Bank acts as your cash manager by optimizing the use of funds when you maintain excess balances in your operating account. As checks are presented, funds are automatically transferred from an investment account (repurchase agreement account) to cover the transaction. Likewise, as deposits are made, money is transferred automatically to an overnight investment account until future checks are presented. Typically, business clients maintain a "target balance" in their checking account to offset activity charges.
Credit sweep links your operating account directly to a revolving line of credit for maximum use of funds (subject to credit approval). The credit sweep automatically transfers money from the line of credit to your operating accounts as checks are presented. Likewise, idle funds in your checking account are transferred, when appropriate, to pay down your line of credit.

Heartland's® proprietary online merchant center, Info Central, provides fast, convenient access to your merchant transaction activities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The way people do business has drastically changed. To keep up with today's savvy customers, you not only need the highest quality products and services and superior customer support, you also need the ability to take your business anywhere. In other words, you need Heartland® Mobile Payments - Mobuyle.
Unlike other mobile payment solutions that hold funds up to 30 days for various reasons, Heartland® funds our merchants the same as if they are processing transactions in their store - so you will be funded faster. Heartland's® Interchange Plus Pricing means a customer can qualify for a lower fee instead of the "one-size-fits-all rate" offered by it's competitors.
You will also benefit by having a single processing provider - with just one account, one statement, one phone call - for both in-store processing and mobile payments.
