Positive Pay FAQs

Get answers to frequently asked questions about Positive Pay.
What is Positive Pay?
Positive Pay is a resource available to business members of all sizes to help stop check and ACH fraud against your business. Positive Pay in its simplest form is a service that matches the account number, check number, and dollar amount of each check presented for payment against a list of checks previously authorized and issued by your company. All three components of the check must match exactly, or it will trigger an exception to review and decision.
How does Positive Pay work?
Each day checks are written, your business sends (uploads/transmits) a file of issued checks to Advia. When those issued checks are presented for payment, they are compared electronically against the list of issued checks. If there are any discrepancies to the information you submitted, the check is flagged as an exception, an alert will be emailed to you that you have exceptions to review. You will then decide to pay or return the check. Exception items can include check numbers that don’t exist in the issued file, dollar amounts that don’t match, duplicates of a check that have already been paid, or even checks you may have issued but forgot to upload into the issued file.
How will we be notified if there are exception items?
You will receive a daily email notifying you of any exception items. You can then choose to pay or return those items.
How can Positive Pay help with Account Reconciliation?
Positive Pay identifies mismatched checks more quickly and increases the accuracy with which account activity is reconciled. The Positive Pay system also shows a summary of issued, paid, voided, and outstanding checks you can refer to as needed.
