E-Checks – Expanding Your Payment Options

When your customer presents you with a paper check, you can speed processing and improve security by converting it into an electronic payment. Also called an electronic check conversion, a Back Office Conversion (BOC), direct debit, ACH payment, or ACH transfer, an e-check is processed through the Federal Reserve Banks ACH Network, using the numbers on the account and routing numbers on the paper check.

To get the conversion process going, all you have to do is scan the check or input the numbers into your computer or terminal.

  • Using e-checks provides customers with a convenient alternative to paying with cash or using a debit or credit card. This additional method of payment translates to additional sales for your business.
  • Transferring paper check payments into electronic format saves you from transporting paper checks to the bank. Without reliance on paper checks, payments cannot be misplaced, stolen, or lost in the mail as fewer people handle them.
  • Once the customer’s bank verifies the account information, the money passes through the ACH system directly into your account. Accepting out of town checks is no problem as the system can check virtually any bank for verification.
  • If the check does not clear, you receive quick notification. TransNet, as your merchant services company, maintains files of customers who have previously passed bad checks.
