With Direct Payment via ACH, your organization can make and receive payments electronically. Direct Payment can be used to pay your vendors and other service providers and collect payments, such as tithes or donations, from your members or constituents. Because payments are electronic, you can streamline and simplify your payment processes and cut your costs.
By implementing Direct Payment in your organization, you can automate your accounts payables. This can allow for better cash flow management and easier reconciliation and reporting.
You also help support environmentally sustainable practices. Electronic payments reduce the use of paper and its impact on the environment.
Direct Payment allows your members and constituents to make payments using their bank account. This can reduce the fees your organization pays for card and paper check transactions and encourage automatic, recurring giving.
By implementing Direct Payment in your organization, you expand payment options, providing your member and constituent base with the flexibility to make payments in the manner that best suits their needs.
Your Direct Payment transactions are safe: Unlike a paper check, which passes through many hands, account numbers remain confidential. You can also consult with your financial institution or payroll provider to learn about additional sound business practices to protect sensitive data.
