Checkissuing Positive Pay Solution

check and money

One of Checkissuings functions is to assist companies issue checks as payment for services rendered. Checks are paid to class-action, rebate or refund recipients, employees, suppliers, vendors, and businesses that a company purchases goods and services from. However, if a strong security system is not put in place, identity thieves and fraudsters can “wash” or even create counterfeit checks that can be presented to the bank, where, if nothing seems amiss, the fraudulent withdrawal requests may be honored. To protect our clients against check fraud, Checkissuing strongly encourages and offers integration support for a system known as Positive Pay.

Positive Pay is a fraud-prevention system offered by most commercial banks to companies for a fee to protect the companies against forged, altered and counterfeit checks. This system allows the banks to verify that the checks they process are funded properly. When a company issues payroll or other types of checks for the week or month, it sends the check register list to the bank which stores the information in its database. If the information for any of the checks does not match the file, the bank notifies its corporate customer through an exceptions report and withholds payment until the company advises the bank to accept or reject the check.
