  • You'll need to review all presented checks from the previous day's activity, determining if they should be returned as fraudulent.
  • Item amount exception can be used to designate a dollar amount that will trigger an exception on a reverse positive pay account.

The difference between Reverse Positive Pay & Standard Positive Pay

Reverse Positive Pay:

Typically well-suited for small business customers who issue fewer checks, or large business who may want to use it for a less active account without the ability to submit check issue files to the bank. Receive an alert to notify daily if checks are being presented. Simply review images of all checks that are presented to your account the previous banking day online and return any payments that appear fraudulent.

Standard Positive Pay:

Suitable for businesses of all sizes and provides fraud detection for checks presented matching payee, check number, issue date and amount. This service requires you to send an electronic file of checks issued to the bank.

Hyperion Bank has great services and a 1-to-1 personal touch that people feel good about.
