What are Positive Pay files?

PositivePay files contain a list of uncleared checks, with their check numbers and Amounts, which you can submit to your Bank.  Once received, the bank will only honor checks in your PositivePay file.  This helps prevent fraud and endures that the banks pay the correct amount for each check you have issued, and only the checks you have issued. Many banks support a type of PositivePay file, which is often different per bank.
