Payment processing is made easy with ACH / electronic checks (e-checks) from The Transaction Group (TTG)! ACH / e-check is a great payment processing solution for many businesses.
ACH for High Risk Merchants
Many businesses that fall into the high risk classification have a difficult time getting approved for a traditional merchant account. Completing lengthy applications and submitting excessive amounts of support documents and waiting weeks only to be declined can be taxing for any merchant. Merchants that are lucky enough to get a high risk merchant account pay for it with high rates and fees.
Customers want to buy your products or services, but unless you’re willing to pay extremely high rates and be burdened with the risk of an offshore merchant account, you’re sort of out luck with a traditional merchant account solution.
ACH is ideal for these high-risk online merchants that can’t get approved for traditional merchant accounts or those that do not want to pay high rates and fees. And for some high-risk businesses, an ACH payment solution is the only option.
ACH for Recurring Payments
ACH e-check is also ideal for merchants that collect recurring customer payments from customers.
Many merchants that bill for services on a regular basis keep customer credit cards on file to have recurring payments automatically charged on a particular schedule. In many cases, these merchants auto bill on a monthly basis.
What most merchants do not realize is that these card-not-present transactions can cost them 3-4% each time. Or perhaps, these merchants do not realize there’s a more economical option: ACH.
With the ACH solution, a digital check or e-check is created to automatically draw a specified amount directly from the customer’s bank account on the particular schedule. The check is deposited directly into the merchant’s account within 2 days.
Although the fee can vary slightly, the fee for the transaction is typically about ½ of a percent. The difference in the credit card processing fee and ACH fee can save a merchant a lot of money each month, especially when the merchant has many customers on their recurring billing schedule.
