What are eChecks?
An e-Check is the electronic version of the standard paper check. These are sometimes called electronic checks, direct debit, or ACH transfer. E-checks are used to make payments online using only the info that would be contained on a “paper” check. Go HERE for a deeper explanation about what Echecks are.
To pay via E-Checks or to collect money from E-Checks, an online payment processor must be used. There are different payment processors online that will accept E-check payments and they all work the same way.
As of 2015, Echecks are now a standard way to make payments online, along with Credit Cards and 3rd Party Payment Processing Companies like PayPal, Skrill, and many more.
