Why is ACH electronic check processing the in-thing now

With the onset of the digital world, the reliance on paper checks has become negligible. Even SMEs are looking towards a paper-free transaction system with the ubiquitous payment gateways and virtual terminals and other means of payment processing solutions that are present in larger firms and companies. The latest financial reports show that there has been a significant drop in check payment transactions and a steady increase in ACH processing.

Difference between the paper check and e-check

By now every small-scale enterprise knows the importance of maintaining an e-commerce website and providing various payment options to its customers. Every business or startup knows that it has to stay in tune with the technological advancements in the field of payment processing if it wishes to stay in the race. Online customers need to be provided various payment options in addition to credit card and debit card. By understanding the difference between the paper check and Echeck you will be able to make an informed and educated decision as to which form of payment is most suitable for your enterprise with the given resources at hand.

A paper check and Echeck serve the same function of payment and work on similar lines except that an Echeck does not require a signature. Echecks too have tracking numbers like the physical check and can be recorded for future reference. The advantage of an Echeck is that it is faster than the regular check. The merchant need not invest in a new payment gateway because most often the gateway that is used for credit card transactions clears Echecks also. The clearance time does vary though based on the merchant and the payment gateway used. As an online merchant who accepts E-checks, you must ensure that the payment gateway you use has the necessary security layers and proper encryption with security certificates in place.

The use of Echeck minimizes the risk of loss or theft of a physical check, makes record keeping easy and provides flexibility to the customer to make payments from anywhere and any electronic device once a mobile app is downloaded. This provides seamless transactions.

Every online merchant should know the benefits of ACH processing

Though becoming an online merchant is fairly simple the complexities of the system can often leave many users intimidated and fall prey to unscrupulous payment processing. Hence, understanding the basics will help you in choosing the right solution for your billing needs. The automated clearing house or ACH is where all the drama happens where the money from the customer’s account gets transferred to your account.

ACH payments are more preferred than credit card payments because the processing fee for ACH transfer is much less when compared with the plastic cards. ACH is especially beneficial for recurring billing adding more savings to the kitty of the merchant in the long run. The only disadvantage is that you will not know instantly if a check bounces.
