  3. Enter the amount of the check.
  4. Enter the relevant details in the From and Memo fields.
  5. If you have an existing invoice for the check, match it to the deposit. If you received a partial amount, or don’t see the invoice in the suggested list, click on Search for an Invoice, and search by customer name, invoice number, or amount.
    If you don’t have an invoice for the check, select Deposit check with no invoice, and select an appropriate account. If you’re not sure of the category yet, leave it uncategorized by selecting Uncategorized Income from the list of accounts.

That’s it! You’ve successfully deposited your check, and the funds will be available in your Wave Money account in 5-8 business days.

You can also keep track of the deposit on the Wave Money app under your list of transactions. The check deposit transaction will appear with a pending tag until the check clears. If the check deposit fails for any reason, you will receive an email with more information.

To see your check deposit daily and monthly limits, click Settings on the dashboard in your Wave Money app, and select Account limits. The account limits cannot be changed. For more information see terms of service for Wave Money.
