Positive Pay

Overview of Positive Pay

What is Positive Pay?

Positive Pay is an automated fraud detection tool offered by the Cash Management Department of most banks. In its simplest form, it is a service that matches check information of each check presented for payment against a list of checks previously authorized and issued by the company.

Some banks match only Account Number, Check Number and Check Amount.

Some other banks added the Payee Name to the data to match, this service is called "Payee Positive Pay"

How does Positive Pay work?

Positive Pay requires the company to send (transmit) a file of issued checks to the bank each day checks are written. When those issued checks are presented for payment at the bank, they are compared electronically against the list of transmitted checks. The check-issue file sent to the bank contains the check number, account number, issue date, and dollar amount. Sometimes the payee name is included, but is not part of the matching service.

When a check is presented that does not have a "match" in the file, it becomes an "exception item". The bank sends a fax or an image of the exception item to the client. The client reviews the image and instructs the bank to pay or return the check.
