What are ACH payments?

ACH payments are direct deposit payments that use different authorization than swiping a card. Payments can take as long as 4 business days (after your customer authorizes payment) to hit your bank account depending how long it takes both banks to approve the transfer. However ACH transactions have much lower fees which often make this wait worth your time. Gazelle tracks these payments as 'Pending' from the time the customer authorizes the transaction to the time the funds land in your account.
