Automated Clearing House Direct Payment

Direct Payment using our Automated Clearing House (ACH) Origination service is the most cost-effective way to process any type of receivable that is currently handled manually by your business today. Consider the expense to invoice, mail, collect, and post a payment, every time you send a bill to your customers. Using electronic payments can also help improve your cash flow, because transactions automatically post on a pre-determined date, so no more waiting for payments to come in the mail. Plus, customers increasingly prefer this as a payment option, as opposed to paying by check.

The Automated Clearing House is a safe and secure nationwide network for electronic payments.

Please talk to your Relationship Manager to learn more about how you can use electronic payments to manage your cash flow.

Positive Pay

At First National Bank of Northern California, we understand how important it is for your business to maintain control over your disbursements.

Our Positive Pay application works in conjunction with Business Online Banking. You can supplement your check fraud detection efforts to ensure that only those checks you've written are paid. Simply logon to Business Online Banking and send us your issue file as often as you write checks, and our automated systems will match your file with checks clearing against your account for payment. We will notify you of any exception items in a timely manner, so you can make your pay/no pay decisions.
