What are ACH Payments?

ACH is an electronic payment network used to transfer funds from one bank account to another without using paper checks, credit card networks, wire transfers, or cash. These types of payments are sometimes called "direct transfers." 

Because they’re electronic, ACH payments are faster and more reliable than checks, and cost less than a credit card payment.

How can I be eligible to use ACH? 

  • You need to have a bank account added and identity verified to be eligible to activate ACH transfers
