Target will stop accepting personal checks as a form of payment in the coming days. We explain when the measure takes effect.

The Target department store chain has announced that it will stop accepting personal checks as a form of payment.

In a statement to NBC News, the retailer said it was committed to creating an easy and convenient checkout experience, but due to “extremely low volumes,” it will no longer accept personal checks. The move takes effect as of July 15.

While it will no longer accept personal checks as a form of payment when making a purchase, the company will continue to accept cash; digital wallet payments such as Apple Pay; and credit and debit cards.

On the other hand, the company also accepts Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) cards, including those from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
