M&T Bank's Lockbox Service is the most efficient way to collect payments mailed to you. M&T picks up mail directly from the post office throughout the day, deposits the checks into your account and sends you deposit information so you can update your records. You’ll see faster funds availability and decreased processing time and expense. Nothing could be easier!

How Lockbox Benefits Your Business

Time to focus on core business issues.  Eliminate the internal costs of preparing checks for deposit. With Lockbox, staff can spend more time on other important activities.

Faster access to your money.  With M&T's Lockbox service you can get your customer payments deposited as much as three days sooner in some cases.

Better understanding of your business.  M&T’s Image Lockbox gives you the ability to immediately view payments into your account. You will enjoy the benefit of increased research abilities and easy access to archived payments. Lockbox will also update your accounts receivable systems through the creation of daily detailed reporting.

Peace of mind.  Subscribing to M&T's Lockbox service is a cost-effective way to reduce the risk of internal fraud loss, since customer payments bypass internal processing and come directly to M&T.
