You cannot deposit the same cheque more than once. If you have successfully deposited the cheque via Mobile Cheque Deposit, you should not deposit this cheque through other channels or platforms. Likewise, if you have successfully deposited the cheque with us or at other institutions, you are unable to use Mobile Cheque Deposit. If any ineligible application is found, we reserve the right to revoke the deposit.

If you are a Hang Seng Bank cheque issuer, you may receive SMS and email on next day (including Saturday) after the cheque payee has deposited the cheque via mobile.

If you are the cheque receiver, you can log on to Personal e-Banking and check your account balance under Account Overview after you have deposited the cheque using the Mobile Cheque Deposit service[1].

In view of safeguarding the interests of both cheque issuer and receiver, the Bank reserves the right to revoke the deposit due to blurry cheque image.
