How ACH payments (or ePayments) work
ACH payments are electronic payments made through the Automated Clearing House network, a secure system for clearing electronic payments between banks. Managed by NACHA (formerly the National Automated Clearing House Association), the network is much quicker than paper checks, which can never travel faster than the speed of mail.
Direct Deposit via ACH and Direct Debit via ACH are simple, safe, convenient and cost-effective electronic payments options that businesses of all sizes can utilize to make and receive payments. Visit www.electronicpayments.org to learn more.
Using ePayments helps reduce errors, saves valuable resources, and provides much greater security than with paper checks, which helps explain why ACH payment volume grew to over 20.2 billion transactions in 2011.
No wonder more and more businesses are making the conscious decision to use electronic payment options over paper checks or cash.
