Introducing ACH payments by Docketpay

This article contains information about DocketPay's newest offering- ACH payments. The guide will cover the basics around ACH, how to set up ACH payments and how to accept ACH payments from your customers.

What is ACH?

An ACH is an electronic fund transfer made between banks and credit unions across what is called the Automated Clearing House network.

Customers can pay invoices by entering their bank account and routing number. You will get confirmation of the payment immediately, and funds will be deposited into your bank account in a couple of business days.

ACH allows you the benefit of electronic payments, reducing the need to physically pick up paper checks, while being significantly cheaper than credit cards to accept.

What is the cost?

ACH is significantly cheaper than credit cards to accept. ACH payments run just at 1% with a cap of $100. Compared to credit cards this will save you money on the processing fees, while making sure you can control your cash flow by using electronic payments.

If we take the standard credit card pricing for our Grow plan (3%):
$1000 transaction 
Credit card fee - $30
ACH Fee - $10 - Saving $20!

If you process a larger transaction, the saving is even more significant:
$15000 transaction
Credit card fee - $450
ACH fee - $100 (cap) - Saving $350!

How long until I receive my money?

ACH processing takes a little bit longer than a standard credit card payment to clear. You will get confirmation on the payment day one, but the funds will be available in your bank account after 3-5 business days.

How do I set up ACH payments in my account?

ACH is currently only available for customers using our DocketPay integration (powered by Payrix).

If you are already a DocketPay customer, you will be able to accept ACH payment from your customers right away.
