What is ACH Processing?

The Automated Clearing House (ACH) network is a highly reliable and efficient method in which money is transferred electronically from one bank account to another. This is sometimes referred to as an EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer), electronic check, Internet check, etc. This is how direct deposit is done, or how monthly auto insurance premiums or health club memberships are deducted from bank accounts, or how checks written to pay bills are converted to electronic payments. Don’t confuse this with wire transfers such as Western Union or Money Gram. It is much cheaper and simply one of the best methods for any business to collect payments on services or products rendered.
