FINSYNC is unique in that it has its own payments module when making use of the Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfer platform for bank-to-bank transactions in the United States. The uniqueness of the FINSYNC module is that neither party has to share private or secure banking information for transactions of these kind to occur.
- ACH credit transfers include direct deposit, payroll and vendor payments.
- ACH debit transfers include consumer payments on insurance, mortgage, and other kinds of bills.
Note: The ability to make transfers via ACH is an optional, paid service (See Pricing).
To enable ACH transfers, follow the steps outlined below:
1. Click on the Company Profile icon in the upper right corner.
2. Select Account Settings in the upper right, then select Banking on the left.
