Kotapay’s Response to the Coronavirus
Kotapay is committed to providing you with the services you’ve come to expect and rely upon. We realize the critical and important role that Kotapay plays in processing transactions for you and your clients. We have taken the necessary steps to ensure there is no interruption in processing while we continue to practice social distancing.
During this uncertain time, make sure you know your customer and mitigate risk when processing payroll for your clients. Please read our blog post here to learn ways to mitigate risk and an additional processing window available to ensure good funds.
We are monitoring the situation closely and keeping in contact with State and Federal officials for guidance. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Due to the highly sensitive nature of the information you send to Kotapay and given the uncertain times right now, having a data security policy is more important than ever. Nacha also requires all participants in the ACH network to adhere to data security standards. Kotapay is required to ensure our customers are also adhering to these standards.
