Fraud is increasing at an alarming rate, which is why it’s more important than ever for your company to be prepared. In 2021, ACH debits was one of the payment methods most impacted by fraud activity.* Is your company proactively preventing ACH fraud?
ACH Positive Pay helps combat fraud associated with electronic payments. Your business sets up a list of approved vendors that are paid automatically, along with expiration dates and filters that cap the amount of money that can be paid to any one vendor. Any electronic transaction that occurs outside of these boundaries generates an alert so you can decide whether it is legitimate and then approve or deny the transaction.
ACH Block gives your business the ability to block all incoming ACH debits presented to your account. All ACH debits posting to an ACH blocked account will be returned automatically, depending on your instructions.
