Note about WePay "Pay by Check" payments

We have decided to stop accepting WePay "Pay by Check" (bank draft / ACH) transactions. This payment option was complicated and error-prone and used by less than 0.5% of all transactions. 

Verifying the payment required either providing username and password to one's bank account (which many people were understandably reluctant to do) or via a 'micro-deposit' verification where two small deposits would be made to your checking account over the next few days, requiring the purchaser to verify those amounts before payment was processed. And once the verification process was handled, there still remained the possibility the electronic check payment would bounce. 

Please note: teams still have the option to accept offline checks (paper checks) during registration. This change only affects the electronic check payment option.
