What is E-Check Processing
e-Check processing is the electronic version of the traditional paper check payment method and can be transacted online between a customer, wishing to pay for goods or services online, and the company offering these goods or services. An e-check offers customers convenience and a greater level of security and confidence in paying for commodities online as many individuals are concerns with online fraud schemes.
An e-check will require the same information as a traditional check in that it will include the amount of money to be paid, individuals bank account name and number, bank routing number and the signature of the payee. With e-checks, the signature is achieved digitally. E-check processing is only available for customers coming from the United States and Canada.
How to use E-Check Processing
There are two main methods of processing e-Checks, namely; ACH and Check21. ACH, also known as automated clearing house, enables e-checks to be processed in a similar way to how bank wires operate. With ACH processing, e-checks can take up to 7 working days to clear. Check21 processing is a more popular method of processing e-checks as it enables faster clearing and fund transfers to take place. The clearing of an e-check through Check21 can take between 1-3 days to clear.
