But if you use a secure web page the bad guys will immediately grab all your bank details.
Don't know about the situation in your country, but the banks in all the countries where I have bank accounts--both in Europe and Asia--allow to logon to the secure web portal of the bank and make invoice payments from there directly to the bank account of the beneficiary.

I recently went to the regional head office of my Asian bank with an AdSense check. They asked me "What is that? In which country do they still use them?" They had to call the national office of their bank to ask for the procedure to process it. Checks are so twentieth century...
