ACH Direct Debit is a popular payment method used in the United States as an alternative to credit and debit cards. The payments are processed via the Automated Clearing House (ACH) which is an electronic network for processing financial transactions.

To accept ACH Direct Debit payments, you need a registered business entity in the United States.

Both one-off and recurring payments are supported by ACH. Due to the risk of chargebacks, we don't recommend using ACH Direct Debit for one-off payments.

The ACH network is unable to provide real-time authorisations, so there is a risk of transactions being reversed, for example if the bank account has insufficient funds. Additionally, the shopper can initiate a chargeback up to 60 days from the initial date of the direct debit payment.
