A check cashing fee chart explains how much it costs to cash different types of checks of varying dollar amounts, according to the chart at Check Center. Fees differ considerably depending on the dollar amount, the kind of check and what company cashes it, notes U.S. News Money.
The fee at some check cashing stores is a percentage of the check, while other stores charge both a flat fee and a percentage fee. Large retailers such as Walmart that cash checks generally charge smaller, flat fees. Prepaid card accounts permit users to deposit checks at specified ATMs rather than using a check cashing store. The check's issuing bank is least likely to impose a fee when cashing checks, notes U.S. News Money.
