How Positive Pay works:

  • You send BankFIRST a Positive Pay file that lists all checks written against your account(s) including check issue date, amount, check number, account number, and payee name (Note: Checks converted to ACH are not covered by Positive Pay)
  • As checks are presented for payment, BankFIRST compares each check against the Positive Pay file
  • Any discrepancies are brought to your attention to make a payment decision
  • Positive Pay has the added benefit of being a time saving tool in the reconciling of accounts.
