MICR Ink: Decrease or Eliminate bank rejections
Magnetic Ink Character Recognition is a character recognition system that uses special ink and characters to provide a much higher level of security and a decreased exposure to check fraud. MICR provides a secure, high-speed method of scanning and processing information in the banking network.
Secure Envelopes: Protect your information
All envelopes include black security tint, which prevents sensitive information from being read through the envelope.
Positive Pay: Extra protection for your bank account
Positive Pay is an automated fraud detection tool offered by the Cash Management Department of most banks. In its simplest form, it is a service that matches the account number, check number and dollar amount of each check presented for payment against a list of checks previously authorized and issued by the company.
SmartPayables can assist you in creating the positive pay file that needs to be presented to your bank each day checks are printed and mailed. We offer file creation and even file submission depending on the needs of your company.

Our team has developed a robust user-friendly fintech administration system for our customers to use at their convenience. The system is available on our secure URL with login credentials. We take pride in providing the highest security to our clients and obtain a SOC Security audit annually, as well as ensure we are PCI Compliant. Rest your mind, we have security on the brain 24/7.
Fast and Reliable Service
Same Day Printing: Quick and Accurate printing
If you are able to get us your check payment information before 9:00 am MST, your checks will be printed and mailed the same business day. We also offer expedited printing options after 9:00 am MST for a minimal fee.
Document Integrity: That is just smart
Every piece printed at SmartPayables receives a 2D barcode in the upper right hand corner. This barcode is tracked from our system through the machines and into the USPS tray. We also use the 2D barcode to ensure any insert that needs to be matched with a particular check is folded and inserted into the same envelope.
Free USPS First Class Tracking: What will we think of next?
SmartPayables sprays an IMb on all mail sent. If the mail piece is going through USPS First class, then we receive data from the USPS each time the mail piece is scanned.
When the USPS scans the piece at entry to the mail stream or in home/business delivery, we receive the data from the USPS.
Mailing Options: So many options…
- USPS First Class
- USPS First Class International
- USPS Priority (2-3 days)
- USPS Express (1 day)
- Certified Mail
- FedEx (options available for 2 day or overnight)
Bundling Feature: Package your payments together in one shipment
If you have several check payments that all need to go to one location, our bundling feature will be perfect for you. You can designate a batch of payments that have different payees and payee addresses to go into 1 envelope to 1 location.
Tacking Numbers: Get your tracking numbers the same day
As soon as your special handling label is printed, the tracking number will instantly be available to you.
Inserts along with Checks
Insert Features: Send more than just a check
Don’t just send a check—deliver a direct marketing message, send invoices, statements, or business documents by including inserts with your check payments.

We handle all the details, whether you want black and white or the extra impact of four-color printing.
