Positive Pay Fraud Detection

Positive Pay helps mitigate fraud by validating the authenticity of all checks and ACH items presented against your business checking account. For ACH, a list of approved merchants is provided by the customer. For checks, an electronic file, complete with check issue information, is uploaded. From there, we verify both the dollar amount and the check number as your checks are presented for payment. ACH and checks that fail to match your issue information are flagged as exceptions, requiring final review and approval by you. With fraudulent activity on the rise, Positive Pay helps protect your funds.
Payee Match adds security for your business’ treasury management, but with additional layers of protection to help further enhance risk mitigation and fraud reduction. Our system uses a powerful optical engine to match the payee name in the issue file to the payee name on the check presented for payment to ensure accuracy and enhanced control.
