Positive Pay can help reduce fraud by identifying unauthorized check transactions before final payment is made.
Positive Pay is a comprehensive solution for managing daily check transactions and clearings. A daily customer file import compares information with files of transactions posted to the customers’ accounts. Exceptions such as duplicate transactions, amount discrepancies and check number mismatches are identified automatically. Positive Pay offers a versatile solution for preventing fraudulent activity.
The system does not prevent transactions from taking place, but simply provides information to the bank. Decisions on exception items are made by the customer through the user interface within BusinessConnect Internet Banking.
Positive Pay Features Include:
Real-time integration: The solution is streamlined between customer accounts and the bank’s clearings.
Automated exception handling: Each transaction submitted through Positive Pay is sent for authorization. Exceptions are handled directly through BusinessConnect Internet Banking and First Westroads Bank’s Operations Department.
Upfront fraud prevention: Authorized customer’s employees are empowered to resolve exception items, mitigating potential fraud losses.
Easy file import: Streamlined customer process of importing Positive Pay files containing issued, void or stop-pay transactions via BusinessConnect Internet Banking.
