Merchant Partners Online Checks (ACH)
The Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) is an electronic payment delivery system. First introduced in the early 1970s as a more efficient alternative to checks, ACH has evolved into a nationwide mechanism that processes electronically originated credit and debit transfers for institutions nationwide. ACH is a rapidly growing alternative to paper checks and handles billions of payments annually. In fact, online checks will rise in value from $300 million in 2000 to $3.2 billion this year, and will be worth $5.2 billion by 2002.
