How to Use Sage 100 Positive Pay

Did you know that Sage 100 can generate Positive Pay files?  Positive Pay is designed for businesses that want their bank to help monitor against fraudulent check activity. Sage 100 will generate a file that lists all of the checks issued.  The file is uploaded to the bank.  The bank will validate the account number, check number, and dollar amount of each check submitted for payment against the list of checks submitted electronically by you.
