❔ What's the difference between an Electronic Check, eCheck, and ACH? The acronym ACH is short for Automated Clearing House, which is an electronic network for processing transactions between financial institutions such as banks. Most commonly the term "ACH" is used to indicate a transfer from a bank account via a checking or savings account, which acts similarly to the process of writing a paper check. The term has evolved to include multiple variations including "electronic check", "e-check", and "eCheck". In essence, all of these words have the same meaning but some businesses prefer to use one word or the other. Your merchant agreement may use any/all of these terms to confirm that you are able to accept electronic payments directly from a bank.

Finally, click the Add button and you're done!
