Protecting your business's financial integrity not only preserves your hard-earned resources but also upholds your reputation and the trust of your clients, partners and stakeholders. Apple FCU's Positive Pay program helps you fortify your accounts against unauthorized access and fraudulent transactions.
Positive Pay uses a list of previously authorized checks and ACH information issued by a company to cross-reference transactions. If specific components of the check or ACH do not exactly match, the transaction will be flagged, and your company will be notified.
With its real-time validation and cross-referencing capabilities, Positive Pay ensures that only authorized checks are honored by Apple FCU, effectively thwarting potential threats. By mitigating the risk of fraudulent transactions, you safeguard your business's reputation, finances and peace of mind.
