Step 14: Once the status shows as Completed for the bill payment, click DOWNLOAD PAYMENT FILE from the Actions drop down menu to download the ACH file then upload the file to your bank portal. 

When contacting CNB to set up Positive Pay services, you must ask for the Positive Pay service WITH PAYEE NAME.

There is another Positive Pay format without the Payee name. This will not work with GreenSlate services.

If CNB requests a Sample File, enter a $1 invoice for a vendor and complete the Bill Payment. Send this file to CNB.
