The Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) is
an electronic payment delivery system. First introduced
in the early 1970s as a more efficient alternative to
checks, ACH has evolved into a nationwide mechanism
that processes electronically originated credit and
debit transfers for institutions nationwide. ACH is
a rapidly growing alternative to paper checks and handles
billions of payments annually.
In fact, online checks will rise in
value from $300 million in 2003 to $50.2 billion this
year, and will be worth $190.9 billion by 2015.
