The credit card fee on a $10,000 transaction is a very meaningful dollar amount for a business like ours. We needed to find a way to save money on fees while giving patients more flexibility about their payment options.

Less churn

Credit cards expire every three years, as well as getting lost or stolen. ACH uses checking accounts, which don’t expire or get lost.

Mitigate fraud

Plaid-powered ACH reduces fraud risk by instantly verifying the identity of the account owner, including name, address, email, and phone number.

Reduce NSF fees

Worried about NSF, overdraft, or chargeback fees? Don’t be. All it takes is a simple account balance check, and you’re in the clear.
