Positive Pay services
As an added security measure to reduce check fraud for business banking customers, our Positive Pay Services automatically match your transaction information with transactions presented for payment against your account to identify and report fraudulent and unauthorized payments for both checks and ACH.
Check Positive Pay matches each check’s information presented against a list of checks previously authorized and issued by your company.
ACH Positive Pay compares identifying information within an ACH debit transaction attempting to clear your account against a list of ACH debits previously authorized and issued by your company.
Detecting errors, discrepancies, or fraud, account reconciliation compares your business’s financial records against statements from your bank accounts to ensure they match.
Multi-factor authentication adds a second layer of security, protecting your banking information by requiring additional verification to log in to your online or mobile banking account. When logging into your account, you’ll be prompted with a text or call directly to your phone and provided with a unique security code for your session.
