FundTransferInitiation– This stage is initiated by an Originator. An originator is someone who initiates an ACH transaction of either requesting money or sending money. The Originator must have authorization from the other party. When the customers use the service, the company sends a request to bank to debit the customer’s account.
Authorization Stage -The purpose of the ACH processor bank is to securely connect the company or business person’s bank to their customer’s bank. It receives the authorization request in the form of an ACH file and sends it to the customer’s bank.
Primary fund transfer –This is when the funds are moved from the customer’s bank account to the ACH processor bank. This may take 1-3 days but is usually done overnight.
Secondary bank transfer– This is when funds are transferred from the ACH processor bank to the company’s bank account. After the processor bank has completed analyzing the primary fund transfer transaction, it automatically sends the funds to the company’s bank account.
