Today, at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco, Paypal’s Laura Chambers indicated that an update to her company’s iPhone application, that will allow users to deposit checks by photographing the front and back of the tender with their Apple smartphone, is due “in the next day or so.” The ability to deposit checks via scanned images has already been implemented by some traditional banks, however PayPal will be one of the first companies to implement the feature into a mobile application.
