One of the best ways that businesses can process a vendor payment for products or services is to set up an account for making ACH or Automated Clearing House payments. Consumers use this payment format for making purchases online and paying their monthly bills.

To do this, a direct connection to the processor’s phone system or website is required. There are 6 steps involved to setting up your ACH account.

1 – Choose the Company You Wish to Make an ACH Payment to and Set-up an Online Account

If there is no account management system available for this, you can set up your account by contacting the service provider and doing it over the telephone.

3 – Enter Your Account Information

4 – Provide the Name of the Profile That Is Associated With the Payment

If it applies and is available, select the recurring payments option to ensure that an automatic draft is created when any payment is due.

5 – Save Your ACH Profile to Your Account

If that option is not available, you can confirm it using their phone system.

Choose your ACH profile, enter the payment amount, and schedule your payment. The biggest benefit to setting up an ACH account is that it is very convenient and will save you.

However, keep in mind that it could take up to several business days after you have scheduled your payment before it is processed. Additionally, if you decide at any time that you want to cancel your account services, then you will need to contact a company representative and inform them of this so that your payments are stopped.
