Why verify a bank account?

One of the biggest benefits of accepting a paper check or processing an ACH payment is the cost. ACH transactions can be processed for a fixed rate cost while credit card interchange rates are based on a percentage of the total transaction amount. That lower cost is offset by the risk of accepting a transaction that may return unpaid.

  • Decrease returns by 50 percent or more
  • Identify risky clients
  • Accelerate funding
  • Maintain a better clearing house relationship

What is bank account verification?

When processing a check or ACH payment it is important for businesses to be able to verify that a bank account is valid. Bank account verification is the process of validating the bank account number to make sure the account is open and in good standing. Verifying a bank account before a transaction is processed can reduce returned ACH payments. Separately, account ownership authentication can provide additional verification by matching a specific name provided to the account number.
