Q: How does DepositPartner work?
A: DepositPartner is a web‐based software product that allows a business to send check deposits to the bank without leaving the office. Using a special check scanner, an image is created of the front and back of each check. These images are sent electronically to the bank for deposit.
Q: What do I do with the paper checks after I scan and transmit the file?
A: The paper checks must be stored in a secure, fire resistant area for 30 days and then destroyed by shredding or burning.
Q: Can a Sole Proprietor (DBA) use DepositPartner?
A: Yes, any business type can use DepositPartner.
Q: Does the system accept Postal Money Orders, Cashier Checks, or Travelers Checks?
A: Yes, as long as the image is clear and the dollar amount can be read. DepositPartner accepts any valid US check.
Q: Are there any items that cannot be processed on DepositPartner?
A: Cash and foreign checks cannot be processed through DepositPartner. In some situations, the scanner may not be able to read critical check information. In those circumstances, the original check will need to be deposited at a branch.
Q: How do I redeposit a Non‐Sufficient Funds (NSF) item though the scanner?
A: If a deposited item is returned, it will be in the form of an Image Replacement Document (IRD). You can scan the IRD through the scanner just like a check.

Q: Can I buy my scanner elsewhere?
A: No, you must purchase the scanner from our authorized dealer, Superior Press. They have tested the scanner thoroughly and have a warranty program in place for you.

Q: Can I use a different scanner than the one you recommend?
A: No, Johnson Bank has selected and tested the DepositPartner software specifically on our recommended scanners. If another scanner is used, it may not work. When using a scanner not recommended by us, we are not able to guarantee the quality of the images and will not be able to assist you if you experiences problems or issues with the scanner.

A: The life expectancy of a scanner depends on the environment, clean/care of the scanner, transaction volumes, etc. If proper upkeep of the scanner is met, the life expectancy is approximately 2‐5 years.
