Same Day ACH

To meet business needs in a fast-paced world, the National Automated Clearinghouse Association (NACHA) has implemented Same Day ACH. While standard ACH payments process on a next-day or two-day basis, Same Day ACH lets you initiate payments and receive funds faster.  


Advantages of Same Day ACH

Businesses and consumers can both benefit from Same Day ACH debits.

  • Faster business to consumer payments– Same day payroll, insurance payouts, emergency funds, or refunds.
  • Business to business payments – Improved settlement of payments between businesses for invoice processing and release of goods.
  • Consumer to business bill payments – Customers can make payments “due today” for their mortgage, car, utility, credit card, or other payments if offered by the Payee or business. This can assist with accelerated crediting of late payments.
  • Person to person payments – Sending emergency funds to a family member, payments to the babysitter, or for reimbursement of a shared expense can now be processed and posted even quicker to the person’s account.
  • Account to account transfers – Provides for faster movement of funds between accounts.
