Free Webinar Series Presented by ACH Direct, Inc. Continues with "Unauthorized Entries and Stop Payments"

(ALLEN, TX – June 8, 2011) It happens. From time to time organizations receive a returned transaction that is marked as unauthorized or their customer simply stops the payment. They need to know the details on why and when an entry is returned as unauthorized and what their roles and obligations are as a Company. In addition they should know the difference between a Stop Payment and an unauthorized transaction, as well as what they should do when an item is returned as Stop Payment.
