What is Positive Pay?

Positive pay is a fraud detection tool designed to protect and prevent check fraud for businesses. Positive Pay is a service offered by most banks to business clients to prevent check fraud. It can detect altered and counterfeit checks as the bank processes and recieves them.

Banks use positive pay to match the check issued by a company against the received checks the bank processes for payment on the businesses account.

Positive Pay compares and verifies the check number, account number, and dollar amount of each check your business issues to the checks presented for payment against your account. If the checks do not match, they will be sent back to the issuer to be reviewed and verified.

Why Positive Pay?

Check Verification

Every check presented for payment is automatically verified against client’s positive pay data. This includes checks presented at the teller line and those processed at the bank office. Positive pay will prevent payment of duplicate checks and protect against lost, stolen or altered checks as well.

Fraud Control

Positive pay dramatically reduces the chances of check fraud putting you ahead of the criminals.

The Decision Is Always Yours

Your business can always decide whether to accept the check or not. You have the final call with positive pay. It gives you the ability to easily monitor and make the payment decisions about your finances.
