How to Accept Mailed Payments through Autobooks

In addition to the two online payment methods offered through Autobooks, there is a third convenient option for you to receive payments from your customers: mailed payments sent to our lockbox facility.

There is a P.O. box set up for each business that uses Autobooks, and your customers can mail a physical check to this address that will then be deposited electronically into your account.

How to Accept Mailed Payments through Autobooks

  • First, create and email the invoice to your customer
  • Your customer will be able to view the invoice from the email they receive
  • They can click the [printer] icon from their invoice to bring up the print functionality in their internet browser


  • Our application automatically creates a remittance slip for mailed payments when customers bring up the print option 
  • This additional page has instructions on how to properly mail a check to our processing center
    • It will tell them where to mail it to, and what to include:


Once a mailed check is received at our processing center, that check is opened, scanned, cashed, and applied to your business' account (please note that this is done on business days only).

    • If the check received matches to a customer and/or a customer's invoice, it will be applied to that customer's balance
    • If the check does not match to a customer or a customer's invoice, it will be applied as a general deposit to your business' Autobooks account
  • Checks are processed the same business day that they are received at the lockbox facility, and the funds are available to you in 1 to 2 business days from the processing date
