Portuguese term or phrase: cheque ao portador
A type of payment made by a company. Here's the phrase in Portuguese:
"...pagamento feito em ordens de pagamentos, depósitos em conta ou cheques ao portador..."
It seems to me that this is referring to checks made out to the specific party/person receiving them. Does anyone have a more concise way of saying this?

It seemed too literal to me at first, but it's definitely right on the money. Thanks!
