How It Works

The Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) Service network is a nationwide electronic batch processing system operated by the Federal Reserve Bank. In order to access this network, a company must send transfer instructions to its originating bank, which then passes them to the network that will effect settlement one or two days in the future. If the bank routing number and account information is correct, transactions post automatically with no human intervention at the receiving bank.
