Positive Pay

Positive Pay is a cash management feature that helps you detect, identify, and actively prevent check fraud.  Here's how it works:

  1. Send us your secure online data file of all checks written for your business.  We verify the checks presented including payee, check number and dollar amount.
  2. Any items that do not match the file are halted until you can review and approve them.
  3. This ensures that no fraudulent checks are paid and keeps your account secure.
