Batch

A group of instruments, especially checks and other demands for payment, that a company keeps for processing later in the day. For example, if a retailer is paid with 30 checks in a given morning, these checks collectively are called a batch. Using batches is becoming less common among retailers as customers increasingly pay with debit and credit cards. A batch is also called a block.
