Every business needs an effective and secure method for transferring funds between two financial institutions.
Automated Clearing House (ACH)
The ACH network enables a hassle-free way to electronically transfer funds.
Transferring funds doesn’t have to be a huge ordeal. And frankly, it shouldn’t be. With ACH, or Automated Clearing House network, you can painlessly transfer funds between two financial institutions. Or, in the case of a business, between the customer’s account and the merchant’s account. And that’s really all there is to it.
