Accept ACH Invoice Payments

Automatic Clearing House (ACH) is a network for electronic funds transfer among US financial institutions. ACH bank transfers have a lower processing fee - just 1% with Square Invoices using ACH bank transfer - making it a great option for large ticket industries.

Important Details About ACH

  • ACH payments take up to 3-5 business days to process.

  • ACH bank transfers have a minimum fee of $1 per transaction.

  • The ability to cancel or refund a pending ACH payment is not available at this time.

  • ACH bank transfer does not support partial payments at this time.

  • If ACH is enabled, you'll be unable to set up payment schedules. Uncheck ACH as a payment method to set up a payment schedule for the invoice.
