ACH, a stalwart among payment types, has again created greater utility by adding a new feature, namely faster transaction processing options. How Same Day ACH fits in among other types of more rapid payment options and how relative market pricing evolves will be critical to users and providers.
Boston. MA (PRWEB) October 05, 2017
With both same-day ACH credits and, since September 15, 2917, same-day ACH debits available in the marketplace, this faster form of ACH is finding applicable use cases in both business and consumer applications according to a new research report by Mercator Advisory Group.
The National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA), the governing body for ACH, has from time to time rolled out new features to broaden ACH’s appeal across channels, most recently faster, same-day transaction processing services. Mercator Advisory Group’s latest research report, Same-Day ACH: Debit’s Debut, examines the impact that Same Day ACH (SDA) is having on the payments market.
“ACH, a stalwart among payment types, has again created greater utility by adding a new feature, namely faster transaction processing options. How Same Day ACH fits in among other types of more rapid payment options and how relative market pricing evolves will be critical to users and providers,” commented Sarah Grotta, Director, Debit Advisory Service at Mercator Advisory Group, author of the report.
