ACH stands for Automated Clearing House (ACH); also known as bank draft, eCheck, EFT and direct debit). It is a feature that allows you to donate directly and securely from your bank account (online) without using your Credit or Debit Card.
Whether the transaction is an ACH debit or an ACH credit, the party initiating the transfer will need two pieces of information about the account on the other end of the transaction. To make an online purchase, for example, you would need to supply your financial institution’s nine-digit routing number and your account number.
If you have a checkbook, you can find the routing and account numbers printed on the bottom of your checks. Otherwise, you’ll need to contact your financial institution for this information.
In order to donate online via ACH through your bank account, please be sure to select the "Bank Account" option in the payment methods during the donation process. Please see the below screenshot for details.
ACH transactions on Mission Quest's Web site are secure and encrypted with an SSL encryption.
