Automated Clearing House (ACH) is an electronic network for financial transactions in the United States.
We currently accept ACH payments when you utilize Stripe as your merchant account option. To set this up, please follow these three easy steps:
1. First, you’ll need to activate your payment processing through Aisle Planner, by visiting the “Business Info” tab from your planner dashboard.
2. Once you’re all set up with Aisle Planner navigate to the Invoice Options screen. First, enable payments then just click the ACH checkbox.
3. On your next invoice, just make sure the ‘Accept Online Payments’ is checked, and you’re good to go!
We suggest performing a small test transaction ($1 for example) and paying yourself so that you may verify you have successfully set up your merchant account correctly.
Your clients will go to the normal invoice page they pay online, but instead of paying via credit card, they can choose ACH. It will then trigger the bank pop-up. This is Stripe’s dialog and cannot be modified at this time.
Stripe provides the ultra-secure payment system that allows your client to enter in their bank credentials, choose a bank account, and start the ACH transfer directly to your bank. Out of the gate, Stripe supports the biggest banks in the United States (sorry – we’re still waiting on Stripe’s non-US bank integration). Typically the transfer takes 5-7 business days.
