Understanding ACH payments processing
Processing times for standard ACH (Automated clearing house) payments can take longer time primarily due to timing allowances for banks honoring standard requests. An ACH debit that is your payment to a vendor is done by the next business day. In both ACH credit and ACH debit cases there are bank hours to contend with in addition to possible delays in fulfillment to verify the possible source of funds. The transfer times are established by NACHA (National Automated Clearing House Association), and processing occurs only on banking business days.

How long does ACH processing transfer time take?
Understanding ACH processing transfer time helps the business house plan their cash flow more precisely. This is a very important consideration for those businesses that generally operate on very thin margins and for those businesses that have limited cash reserves. ACH processes transactions in bulk, generally three times every business day. The network processes all those transactions that have arrived at the network. ACH payments made towards the end of the week generally take longer than those made at the beginning of the week. ACH credit or ‘Push’ transactions are either processed the same day or within one or two business days. ACH debit or ‘Pulls” transactions must be processed by the next business day. The receiving bank also decides to hold the funds for a day or more for fulfillment although ACH processing is complete.
ACH transactions work as a more efficient and cost-effective alternative to paper cheques or plastic cards. Transactions occur through Automated Clearing House Network, which connects more than 25,000 financial institutions across the United States.
