From here the customer’s banking information is captured as well as the payment amount written on the check. The information is then electronically transferred via the Federal Reserve Bank’s ACH Network, which takes the funds from your customer’s bank account and deposits them to yours.

Once the eCheck has been processed and approved, the terminal will print a receipt for the customer to sign and keep. You cna then mark the paper check as “void” and return it to the customer. The process is smooth and simple so you can keep your business as organized as possible.[/vc_toggle]
