Positive Pay is a fraud prevention system offered by most major banks, designed to protect against forged, altered, and counterfeit checks. This system acts as a form of insurance for a company against fraud, losses, and other liabilities related to the bank.

Maximizing Payment Security with Positive Pay from Checkflo

For businesses that depend on paper checks, safeguarding their accounts and preserving client trust in their payment processes is of paramount importance. Positive Pay is a vital tool that not only strengthens every check fraud prevention program but also helps reduce liabilities and upholds a company’s valuable reputation. By implementing Positive Pay, businesses can effectively protect their financial transactions while ensuring a secure and trustworthy payment environment.

Understanding Positive Pay

Positive Pay is a fraud prevention system used by banks to verify the authenticity of checks presented for payment. It helps prevent check fraud by cross-referencing the details of a submitted check against a pre-approved list provided by the issuing company. If there’s a discrepancy, the bank can quickly identify and flag the suspicious transaction.

When the information on the check presented for deposit doesn’t match the report, the bank can take actions such as:

    1. Notify you through an exception report.
    2. Withhold payment until you advise the bank to accept or reject the check.
    3. Flag the check.
    4. Notify a company representative.
    5. Seek permission to clear the check.


  • Enhanced Fraud Prevention.
  • Improved Operational Efficiency.
  • Strengthened Reputation and Client Trust.
