I have dealt with e-checks (generic term) over the years and had no problem. The receiver creates an electronic version of a check and that info is transmitted to the bank, and funds are allocated. It used to be that you would have to cancel a particular physical check, as they would include that info with their electronic rendition. That may or may not happen at PS. Others may fill in that blank.
Seems that the easiest place these days for US players to deposit may be the Cake Network sites. For the upcoming big private freeroll this weekend a deposit is required and it was unbelievable easy. Easier than it used to be using NETTELLER. Damn close to instant using credit cards. (hint here, if your ATM card has a CC symbol on it, and you have the funds available, use your ATM credit card function).
