ACH Payments / Bank Transfers

You can use our integration with Stripe and Plaid to accept ACH payments from your users. This is a popular option for more expensive charges as a way to limit the payment processing fees.

At the time of this writing, for charges $625 or more, Stripe charges a fee of $5 per transaction. (For charges under $625, Stripe charges 0.8%)

Plaid also charges a fee to connect and verify your users bank account. This fee is only charged the first time your user connects their bank account. After that, the connection is saved and there is no more Plaid fee for that bank account. As of the time of this writing, Plaid was charging ~$1.50 per account verification.

Here is an example user flow once you've enabled ACH Payments:
