Positive Pay

Positive Pay aids in preventing fraudulent use of an organization’s funds. Positive pay creates a file containing outstanding check transactions. It allows your bank to compare checks presented to them for payment to your actual checks. This ensures that the checks that get paid by the bank are legitimate and have not been altered.


  • A Positive Pay file is created in Accounting and contains check information such as check number, dollar amount, date, and payee name
  • Each Positive Pay file is created and customized as per your banking institution’s required format
  • After the Positive Pay file is transferred to your banking institution, the bank confirms that each check presented for payment is legitimate
  • The check is paid only if the Positive Pay file matches the payment details of the check
  • Includes one bank file format
