Positive Pay Overview


The Positive Pay feature (sometimes referred to as Safe Pay) allows the User to export a list of Checks from R365 in a format to be uploaded to the Bank. The purpose of the upload is to alert the Bank of these checks so they can be cashed. This is a service offered by many banks to ensure that only approved checks can be cashed.


Positive Pay Exports can be produced on the Check Run.  In order to produce the Positive Pay Export file, the Positive Pay Report must first be assigned on the Bank Record.  Click here for information on ACH Reports
