How does ACH Positive Pay work? 

As check fraud has increased, so has electronic ACH fraud. ACH Positive Pay allows you to prevent unauthorized electronic debits from posting to your account by controlling who you will accept ACH transactions from. You can create filters to allow specific transaction types to post to your account and prevent other transaction types from posting to your account. You even have the ability to block specific transactions over a certain dollar amount. When alerted of an ACH transaction that was not preauthorized, you can either approve or reject the transaction.
