- If the merchant converts their checks into an ACH (Automated Clearing House) debits, those check images are not retrievable, since they are no longer checks.
- If a check has an error, the image might not be available, depending on how the error occurred.
Some check images may not be viewable due to incorrect account numbers or checks that are damaged during processing. Members who do not have Internet access can continue to request photo copies.
