ACH (Automated Clearing House) is a nationwide, electronic payment delivery system that processes credit and debit transfers for institutions nationwide. ACH Debits are processed by using a customer’s bank account information, to deduct funds directly from a checking or savings account, to pay for goods or services. It is a popular and efficient alternative to traditional credit card or paper check processing. ACH credits are processed by using the merchants bank account information to deduct funds directly from a business checking or savings account to pay vendors, peers (B2B), and payroll (direct deposit).
