INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Payable Through Draft'

The bank's name is printed on the face of the draft. However, it does not verify either the signature or the endorsement; this is the responsibility of the issuer. Credit union share drafts are also payable-through-draft instruments, usually cleared by a correspondent bank.
