I'm creating process documentation for a company and there is a phase I called "bagging", in which, literally, you put stuff inside bags.

This is in the context of finance operations. We're bagging money and cheques to be sent via secure courier to be deposited.

However, I find using the verb "bagging" to sound... really crude. Is there a better term for this?

  • Try the word “parceling”. I’ve heard it used in supermarkets for packing groceries.

  • Pack is fine. Maybe also batch or bundle. Commented Jun 14, 2019 at 1:57

To avoid sounding too informal, the OP could use "bagged" in a passive construction e.g.

Cash and cheques are bagged and sent off via…"

If the perfectly acceptable verb bag still bothers the OP, possible alternatives could be "packed", "packaged", or "closed/sealed in bags"

Cash, cheques and other valuables are packed and sent off via…

  • I used the term "Pack" and it looks better.
