Positive Pay

Positive Pay is fraud detection for checks. Checks that post to the account are systematically compared to a list of valid outstanding checks. Checks are automatically paid when they match based on account number, check number and amount. Checks that do not match are identified as exceptions, and you are notified to apply pay or return decisions by a cutoff time; exceptions not receiving a decision by the cutoff time are automatically returned.

ACH Positive Pay

ACH Positive Pay is fraud detection for incoming ACH debits (electronic transactions initiated from outside the bank). It is a self-service alternative to ACH Debit Filter.
