Do I have to contact my bank before using an eCheck?
No. An eCheck is a payment drawn electronically from your bank checking account. Using an eCheck does not require a debit or credit card. To use an eCheck you will be asked for both your routing number and your account number. This information can be most easily obtained from bottom of your paper checks, or you can contact your financial institution for the numbers (some list routing numbers on their website). The numbers are never stored by the City or the payment processing vendor after the transaction is complete.
