PaymentStream AFT (Automated Funds Transfer) facilitates processing and settlement of pre-authorized debits (i.e. donations, strata fee collection) and pre-authorized credits (i.e. payroll, payments to suppliers).

Members can either use Central1 PaymentStream AFT web-based application to input and process the transactions or create a file in CPA Standard 005 format that can be uploaded to Central1 from member's accounting software.

Payment Stream AFT is a self-serve product. User guides and training videos are provided.

The system offers the following features:

  • Ability to send (originate) same-day AFT credits
  • Enhanced originator ID limits to assist with risk mitigation
  • Real-time file validation during file upload and release process
  • File Upload and Manual Release email confirmations sent only when a file is validated successfully. Automatic release will still get email confirmation if a transmission rejects.
  • Added risk controls with dual authorization, where one user submits and another user approves before the file is released
  • Canadian or U.S. dollar transactions can be originated as long as the recipient’s account is held at a Canadian financial institution
  • Ability to release AFT transactions up to 14 calendars days in advance for Data Entry and 45 days in advance for File Upload.
  • Ability to download most AFT reports in CSV and PDF formats
  • Increased record retention for certain reports
