Accept Online Checks from Customers


As a business owner, you know how important it is to provide your customers with as many payment options as possible. Therefore, in addition to being able to accept credit cards, it is beneficial to be able to accept checks from your customers as well.

Accepting Checks with ACH

The ACH, or Automated Clearing House, method for accepting check payments is the method that is preferred by most businesses. This method makes it possible for you to process check payments in the same way you process your credit card payments. By being able to process check payments electronically, your customers don’t even have to write an actual check if they don’t want to. This way, you can easily accept checks for payment even if you have an online store.

Making it Simple

If you have a customer that wishes to make a check payment through ACH, he or she simply needs to enter the appropriate checking information into the system. This includes entering the account number and the routing number, both of which are located at the bottom of your customer’s check. Once your customer enters the information into the system, the payment can be placed into your account within 24 to 48 hours. This way, your customer can pay by check without having to wait for the check to arrive to you by mail. This makes payment safer and more convenient for you, while also helping your customer receive the ordered goods in a more timely manner.

Never Miss a Payment Again

With the help of ACH check payments, your customers can also set up automatic recurring payments. By doing so, you can be certain your customers will never miss a regular payment. This provides you with added security, but it also makes your customers happier because they don’t have to worry about remembering to write a check each month.

Converting Checks to an Electronic Payment  

Even if your customers still decide to send you an paper check, you can use your ACH capabilities to convert the check into an electronic payment. Therefore, if your customers send you a check, you can still get the check deposited into your account more quickly by converting it into an electronic payment.

It is important to note that you are still responsible for the checks that you cash. Therefore, if the check bounces, you will be responsible for the bounced check fees that are associated with this issue. This means you should still keep a strict checking policy in place even when you use the ACH checking method. On the other hand, using this method makes it far easier to keep track of your customer payments. This is because you can view all of your transactions online and you do not need to worry about spending extra money in order to process the checks. In fact, when your business grows, you can save substantially because you will not have to pay people to keep track of your accounts receivable and payable information.
