What is an eCheck?

What are the benefits of eCheck?

Business benefits

Save time, reduce costs

  • Save time. Because eChecks are processed electronically, you don’t have to wait for a paper check to arrive in the mail before receiving notice of a customer’s payment.
  • Reduce errors. The process of receiving and depositing a paper check has multiple opportunities for human error. There are also costs associated with check acceptance, including employee expenses and bank fees.
  • Less effort. With a one-time approval to withdraw funds from a customer’s account, business can automate recurring payments, eliminating the need to manually collect payments. 
  • Low costs. eCheck transactions are typically inexpensive for businesses, with average costs between 26 and 50 cents (for comparison, paper check costs are typically between $1.01 and $2.)1
  • Small dispute window. The period for a customer to issue a chargeback period for an eCheck is 60 days from the purchase date.

Consumer benefits

Save time, reduce effort

  • No paper. eCheck eliminate the time, costs, hassle and efforts associated with using paper checks.
  • Easy payments. Customers can “set it and forget it” by arranging a recurring payment to withdraw automatically.
  • Inclusivity. Customers without access to credit can still pay with an eCheck.

How do eChecks work with

All the information needed from a paper check (routing number, bank account number) is input into an eCheck authorization form, and then it is sent to be processed through the ACH network.
