Automated Clearing House (ACH)

Electronic Check Payment Network

The Automated Clearing House is the electronic network which transfers and clears funds between banking institutions on behalf of merchants and their customers. Each transaction takes approximately 48 hours to clear, and we strongly suggest that merchants wait five days from the initial transaction date before shipping any goods. This leaves two days to debit the consumer's account, two days to deposit the funds into the merchant's account, and one day for the bank to post the transaction.

What is ACH?

Funds transfer system governed by the Rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association, which provides for the interbank clearing of electronic entries for participating financial institutions.
