Do you verify checks for us? All checks entered are screened by multiple national check databases for positive or negative account information, as well as check level status.
We verify if the account exists, is closed, currently in a NSF status, or has other high risk issues. We also check a national database of check writers to ensure your client is not bouncing checks all over the place, or that they do not have unpaid NSF fees with companies and banks.
Green does not just give a blanket yes or no answer when processing a check. If the check is a maybe we will provide you with the reasons why there is a risk and ask you whether or not you wish to proceed with the check process.
Green is the only processor of our kind to offer this yes, no, or maybe setup on your behalf. This allows you to decide, based on the risk at hand, or to charge clients you know may have past issues, but are currently in good standing with your company. This is huge when 99.9% of the processors on the market simply say no, when you know it is going to clear. We leave the choice up to you. And you can even override a no answer if you feel lucky.
