How does it work?

Origination

ACH Origination offers credit unions the ability to become Originating Depositing Financial Institutions (ODFIs) that can initiate electronic debits and credits for their members and/or business members within the ACH Network, while reducing payment processing costs. As ODFIs, your credit union can create one-time entries for submission to the ACH network or you can create databases to initiate reoccurring ACH transactions into the system. The entries/databases are then batched into files and forwarded to the ACH Network for processing.

Receipt

ACH Receipt offers credit unions the ability to become Receiving Depository Financial Institutions (RDFIs) and receive ACH credit or debit requests on behalf of their members and/or business accounts from within the ACH Network, while reducing payment processing costs. Specifically, our ACH system receives electronic debits and credits for Corporate One’s members from the ACH network, which are then distributed to RDFIs, or their processors, to post to members’ accounts.
