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.
