SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Spindle, Inc., (OTCBB:SPDL), a leading provider of mobile payments solutions, announced today it has entered a partnership with CheckAlt, a Los Angeles-based Check 21 solutions company. Through this agreement, Spindle will offer its mobile commerce customers the ability to accept and deposit checks via their mobile phones through CheckAlt's check acceptance platform.
"We're excited to be working with CheckAlt to deliver a new payment medium to our customers," said Bill Clark, president of Spindle, "The ability to easily accept and deposit checks via mobile devices is a sought-after service that is becoming increasingly popular. Delivering this functionality adds tremendous value to Spindle's platform, and will serve our customers' needs well into the future."
Through this technology, Spindle's consumer end-users and mobile merchants can use their smartphone camera to take a photo of a check.

Bancroft & Associates, a regional property management company headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, has signed with Spindle to integrate web-based check accepting technology through the Bancroft website.
