ACH Payments for International Ecommerce

Of course, ACH payment processing is available for companies headquartered in the US.

Yet, there are many companies that are headquartered outside of the US that would like the ability to provide ACH processing as a electronic payment option for buyers located in the US.

Can international companies offer ACH payments, such as echecks, to buyers located in the US?  The answer is yes.

Get More Sales from US Shoppers

ACH echecks gives international companies the ability to accept an electronic check from US shoppers rather than a card payment. An electronic check automatically deducts funds from buyers' bank accounts. Funds are credited to your business bank account.

Millions of Americans regularly purchase goods and services online with echecks. When you accept checks online, you get orders from buyers that don't have cards, are maxed out on cards, or prefer to pay with an echeck rather than a card.  

Ehecks are the most popular alternative payment method in the US. More than 30% of internet sales are paid for with alternative payments such as echecks.  


International companies that want to capture more sales from US buyers are wise to seriously consider adding electronic checks on the checkout page.  Merchants that offer echecks as an alternative payment method experience sales “lifts” up to 29%.

Payment processing fees from electronic checks are less expensive than card processing.  Therefore, profit margins on sales paid by echeck are higher than those from credit card sales.
