ACH Positive Pay Details
Reduce the risk of fraudulent ACH transaction activity by using Cadence’s ACH Positive Pay service. With ACH Positive Pay, any unauthorized or blocked transactions will create exceptions which can be paid or returned.
Fraud is increasing at an alarming rate, which is why it’s more important than ever for your company to be prepared.
ACH Positive Pay helps combat fraud associated with electronic payments. Your business sets up ACH Authorization Rules for approved vendors which includes a maximum allowable amount. Any electronic transaction that occurs outside of these boundaries generates a Positive Pay exception so you can decide whether it is legitimate and then approve or deny the transaction.
ACH Filter block allows you to create a filter so only blocked or filtered transactions create a Positive Pay exception which can be approved or denied.
