Positive Pay In More Detail

What is Positive Pay?
Positive Pay is a FREE effective and practical business solution that helps you guard against check fraud.

How does Positive Pay work?
As a business customer with Positive Pay, you simply upload a CSV or text file each day, through your WSB Online Banking, listing all the checks you have issued and authorized including the check amount and check number for each item. You also have the option of manually keying issued items directing into your online banking. When a check is presented for payment, Positive Pay compares each check against your check issue file. If a check is not in your issued items list or if the check numbers and/or amounts do not match, the check will be denied for payment at that time. Instant daily fraud protection.

Who is eligible to enroll for Positive Pay?
