Mobile Check Deposit

Great Southern's Mobile Check Deposit allows you to deposit checks without going to the bank or an ATM. It's as easy as Snap. Flip. Snap

So, here's how it works:

You'll need four things to start using Mobile Check Deposit: a Great Southern Checking account, an iPhone or Android smartphone, the Great Southern Mobile App* (it's a freebie), and of course, a check to deposit. Got all four? Now you're ready to roll.

Open the Great Southern Mobile App

Login using your online banking username and password. Once logged in, tap the "Deposit" button on the menu at the bottom of your display.

Enroll your account

Now you'll be asked to enroll your account in Mobile Check Deposit. After you submit your account information, you will be notified within one business day by text message that your mobile check deposit capabilities have been activated. Nicely done!

Let's make a deposit

Tap "Deposit Check" on the Mobile Deposit screen. Select the account into which you're making a deposit. Enter the amount the check. Add a brief description of the check, then tap "Front of Check." This will activate your phone camera, so here's a quick "photography 101."

Snap

Place the check on a well-lit, flat surface. Center the check in your phone display, and snap a photo. You can then either save or retake the photo.

Flip

Once you get a clear picture of the check front, press save. You’ll return to the main deposit screen. Now flip the check over so the back is showing, and tap “Back of Check.”

Snap

Follow the same steps you did for the front side. By the way…be sure the check is endorsed with  “[Signature] For GSB Mobile Deposit only [Account #]” , or your deposit may not be processed.

Now that you have two well-lit, easy-to-read photos, press the submit button to send your deposit to the bank for review.

After our team has reviewed your deposit, we’ll send you a text message confirming your transaction has been approved…or informing you of an issue and directing you to a customer service number to get things straightened out.

And that’s it! Snap, flip, snap, deposit. You’re a mobile check deposit expert!
