Wayne Bank Business Online Banking customers have the option to add this free service to their account.

HOW DOES POSITIVE PAY WORK?

  • Positive Pay matches the dollar amount of each check, the check number, and the account number that is presented for payment against business checks that you have previously authorized and issued.
  • As you issue checks, you’ll upload a formatted list of them into Positive Pay via a template in Business Online Banking.

  • When a check is presented to Wayne Bank that does not have a match within the files you’ve uploaded, it becomes an exception item.
  • Every day, Wayne Bank will send you an email notification for any exception items to review within Business Online Banking.

  • You will then decide whether to pay or return each check.**

BENEFITS OF POSITIVE PAY:

  • Positive Pay provides you with an opportunity to significantly reduce your business’s exposure to fraud by identifying altered or counterfeit checks before they have a chance to post.

  • Positive Pay can help you automate check reconciliation.
  • Positive Pay is an important tool for companies in all industries that are at risk for identity theft and fraud scams.
  • Positive Pay enhances visibility of check activity, allowing you greater control over your finances.
