Automated Clearing House (ACH )
At Huntington, we understand you have many different priorities to keep your business operating smoothly. Automated Clearing House (ACH) eliminates the time and expense associated with writing and mailing checks and can improve funds management due to the speed and predictability of your electronic payments.
ACH is a low-cost, electronic funds transfer network allowing you to make electronic payments to or from accounts at virtually every U.S. financial institution.
Traditional ways of payments – like payment by check – can be costly and time consuming. Switching to ACH allows you to pay supplier invoices, bills, and other business expenses, as well as getting paid. This can save your business time and money because Huntington supports Same Day ACH origination, allowing you to make those urgent payments, when needed to avoid late fees.
