Introduction to ACH Payments
ACH payments are becoming more and more popular as a means to pay for services online. For merchants they offer a potentially large decrease in the payment fees they must pay to process a credit card payment while for consumers it offers a different way to make payments when they may not have access to credit cards or available credit.
ACH payments do not work the same as credit card payments, and they expose merchants to new risks related to bad debt that most have no experience with managing. This training course is designed to provide you with a fundamental understanding of how these payments work, the additional risks that must be considered when accepting ACH payments, as well as the options available in the market for mitigating this risk.
This course was last updated in September, 2017 with ACH transaction and volume figures current through end-of-year 2016 and a new discussion on Same-Day ACH mandates and the three phase implementation requiring full compliance by March, 2018. Now offered in HTML5 and compatible with all mobile devices.
