For same-day processing, domestic wires can be initiated until 5:00 p.m. EST each business day.
Using the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network1, 4 is a cost-effective, convenient way to collect and make payments.
Customizable: Import Nacha or CSV files to create batches or set up one-time payments directly in the system.

We offer three remote deposit1 options, allowing businesses the flexibility to enroll in the methods that best match their needs.
Online Banking Mobile Deposit: Deposit checks one at a time using the North State Mobile Banking app. This service is best suited for low-volume business customers.
Remote Deposit Capture: Deposit checks from the convenience of your computer using a check scanner and a high-speed internet connection. Make a deposit by 7:00 PM EST to access funds as soon as the next business day.2
Business Mobile Check Deposit: Deposit checks from the convenience of a mobile device such as a smart phone or tablet without the use of a remote deposit scanner. This app-based service ideal for businesses that want the ability to make high-dollar batch deposits of checks remotely, but do not have the volume to warrant a remote deposit scanner. This service is available for a $10 a month flat fee.

Account Management and Reconciliation
Sweep options are available for select business checking accounts, linking to either another North State Bank deposit account or a line of credit.1
Deposit Account: Based on your cash flow parameters, this option automatically transfers funds at the close of business each day to or from your business checking account to or from another North State Bank account. Excess funds can be deposited into an interest-bearing account such as a money market, or it can pull funds from another account to cover overdraft/NSF situations.
Loan Sweep: Manage daily borrowing needs by linking your checking account to a North State Bank line of credit. Your end-of-day available balance can be used as payment toward the loan balance. You can borrow as-needed to maintain a defined target balance in your checking account.
Zero Balance Account: Designed for companies managing cash flow for multiple checking or money market accounts, a Zero Balance Account (ZBA) is a subsidiary account linked to a primary checking account. For example, a company may choose to have one general operating account and separate ZBAs for payroll, expenses, tax payments, etc. The ZBAs will remain at a zero balance, with funds transferring in to cover account activity.
We offer several ways to integrate account information1 with your preferred accounting software:
Autobooks: Designed to meet the needs of small businesses, Autobooks provides accounting, invoicing, and payment services directly integrated with your North State Bank accounts. Learn more.
QuickBooks® Web Connect and Direct Connect: Users can utilize Web or Direct Connect services to link account data to their QuickBooks software.
Manual Data Export: Data can be exported from Online Banking and uploaded to the software of your choice.
CUSTOMIZED USER ACCESS
Businesses can determine the level of access available to each authorized Online Banking user. By limiting access and functionality, companies reduce the opportunity for fraud.
Companies can opt to require multiple Online Banking users to authorize certain activities. For example, wire transfers or ACH origination can be set up to require the approval of two authorized users before transactions are completed.
In addition to each user’s unique Online Banking ID and password, we can set accounts to require a secure access code provided by text or phone for each Online Banking login.
We offer Positive Pay for both check and ACH transactions. With this service, all ACH debits and checks presented for payment are compared to a list of verified transactions provided by the company. If an item is presented for payment that does not match the verified activity, we will not pay it until it is approved. For more details, contact your banker.
