The abbreviation for Automated Clearing House, which is an electronic network for financial transactions in the United States that is networked with others to exchange (clear and settle) electronic debit/credit transactions (i.e. no physical checks). ACH is an important part of allowing your customers to securely make online payments from their banks. Businesses are increasingly using ACH to collect from customers online, rather than accepting credit or debit cards. The process consists of: the customer authorizing the vendor to debit their account (usually resulting from a sign-up for an automatic debit of their account); followed by the vendor creating an ACH entry and transmitting the entry to the customer’s financial institution; followed by the ACH entry being sent to an ACH operator (most often the Federal Reserve); concluded by the transaction being sent on to the vendor’s financial institution for the vendor’s account to be credited accordingly.
