Next Day Positive Pay


3.1 Overview

Next Day Positive Pay services compare your issue file of checks to the items that posted to your account last night. Any discrepancies are reported, along with additional details, the reason the item was flagged for review, and a link to view an image of the item (e-check images are not available). Items are ready for review at 10:30 a.m. local time (LT), and all payment decisions must be made by 2:00 p.m. LT. (Local time is defined by where the account is housed within Key.)

If you have a CDA and your default is ‘Pay-All,’ you will automatically receive Next Day Positive Pay services and be able to view items that were carried over from the Same Day Positive Pay Report. This allows items that were missed on the Same Day Positive Pay Report, or that required research after the same day deadline, to be returned. Return decisions can be reversed if changes are made prior to 2:00 p.m. LT the same business day.

NOTE: Next Day Positive Pay items are items that have already posted to your account. These items can be returned. However, they cannot be stopped as they have already posted.

3.2 Making pay/return Decisions for Next Day Positive Pay

  1. To make pay/return decisions for Next Day Positive Pay posted items select the ‘Next Day Positive Pay’ link from the Account Management main page.
  2. Use the dropdown menu to select an account.
  3. Click ‘go’ once the appropriate account has been selected.
  4. A list of exception items will be displayed. In this example, the account has a ‘Pay-All’ default so items are presented for possible return.
  5. From this screen, you can make individual return decisions by using the checkboxes to select which items to return and then clicking ‘next.’ You can also view an image or additional details for the suspect items by clicking on the camera icon for the item that you wish to view.

    NOTE: E-checks have been converted from paper items to ACH transactions; therefore, there are no associated images. Clicking on the e-check camera icon will provide additional details, including the type of ACH transaction. If you do not wish to have paper checks converted to ACH transactions, please ask your Treasury Services Payments Advisor about Key’s EPA service. If an image for a check (not an e-check) is not available, please contact Key’s CBBC at 800-539-9039 and notify the representative.
