Why Does Any of This Matter?

As a result, we must rely on you, the account holder, to set up the proper authorizations with your bank prior to using ACH as a payment method on If the proper set-up is not in place, the payment transaction will be rejected and the invoice will remain open. This could result in late charges on amounts owed or other fees in accordance with our policies.
