Check Print files contain checks you’ve created in QuickBooks and wish to send to your bank or check printing service to print the checks and mail them for you. They contain the information needed to print a full check including date, check number, payee, and amount.
Positive Pay files contain a list of checks, commonly including check numbers, amounts, payees, and check dates. You send the file to your bank, usually using their website. Once received, the bank will only honor checks in your Positive Pay file. This process prevents fraud by insuring that your bank pays only pays checks you have issued and for the correct amount. Many banks support Positive Pay files for business accounts and they require many different file formats.
You can define custom CSV and TXT file formats if your bank is not on the list. This works well for simpler bank requirements.
Many banks that require more detail than is supported using the custom format feature. If your bank isn’t listed, please send us a request to add your bank! We are currently adding banks on request! If your bank is not listed, please send a support request and we will probably be able to add your bank to the bank list using your bank’s file specification document.
