What Are eCheck And ACH Processing?
Automated Clearing House or ACH is a payment processing method which process and clears transaction in batches. It is the most common Bank-to-Bank transaction method in the USA. The settlement of funds from one bank to another goes through the ACH network. The network connects all financial institutions having ACH service across the nation.
ACH is as secure as other forms of payment methods. The method is cost-effective and can be a new alternative to credit/debit cards payments.
Electronic Check or Echeck is a kind of Electronic Fund Transfer. eCheck also depends on ACH or Automated clearing House Network to process payments. eChecks are the newer payment method that comes after ACH. Being the newer payment method, it is faster than ACH.
ACH And Credit Card Processing
Though ACH and Credit Card processors work with the same approach to pull the funds from a customer’s bank account, they do so differently. ACH works with a different financial institution who handles all the disputes and has a different processing rate as that of the Credit Card Processors. For your simplicity, ACH is a newer form of payment processing which has a lower cost and has an easy onboarding process.
- ACH transactions are processed through the Automated Clearing House network, whereas Credit Card transactions are processed through the credit network of the issuing card.
- Credit Card payments are guaranteed transactions. Because the transaction only gets processed if the card used has sufficient credit limit. Whereas ACH, on the other hand, is not a guaranteed transaction. It is just a request against funds. The ACH payments are generally processed in batch and sent out for processing every day or as decided by the bank. Once the ACH request is out for processing, it might be approved or rejected based on the availability of the funds. This is the only problem with ACH payments that the request sometimes gets bounced due to non-availability of funds in the Customer’s account.
