ACH payments are most commonly used as a payment method for B2Bs because they are efficient, paperless, and secure, saving time and money.
ACH payment processing is the low-cost alternative to credit cards and checks, as they tend to carry the lowest processing fees out of any form of payment – with the exclusion of cash – since the fees are typically calculated as a percentage of the transaction.
