FINSYNC is unique in that it has its own payments module internally and makes use of the Automated Clearing House transfer platform for bank to bank transactions in the United States. "ACH" is the common abbreviation for this type of transfer.


Automated Clearing House (ACH) is an electronic network for financial transactions in the United States. ACH processes large volumes of credit and debit transactions in batches.

  • 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).
