About ACH Payments

ACH Volume Grows to Nearly 22 Billion Payments in 2011

ACH payments are electronic payments made through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network. They are a popular alternative to paper checks and credit card payments because of the benefits to merchants and consumers: everybody involved gets to save a little money and automate payments (which means fewer errors and less hassle).

Basics of ACH

ACH payments are simply electronic transfers from one bank account to another. Common uses include:

  • A customer pays a service provider
  • An employer deposits money to an employee’s account
  • A consumer moves funds from one bank to another
  • A business pays a supplier for products
