About Bank Transfers

Bank transfers, or ACH transfer, allow your clients to pay directly from their bank account. The fees for bank transfers are lower than online card payments, making it a great choice for clients paying larger amounts.

The biggest downside is that it can take 3-5 business days for a bank transfer to settle, but for the savings in processing fees, many users find this worthwhile.

With multiple payment methods available on invoices (such as bank transfers), you can ensure your client can pay as easily as possible, meaning you'll get paid more often ๐Ÿค‘ ๐Ÿ’ฐ

How it looks

If you have enabled Bank Transfer as one of your payment methods for invoices, they'll see the button to "Pay with Bank Transfer" when viewing your invoice.

After clicking this button, they will be prompted to connect a bank account using Plaid, our banking authorization partner. You have probably seen it on other apps, but it looks like this screen. Your clients can log in with their bank to continue payment.

Once connected, your client will simply need to confirm the payment amount on invoice to start the bank transfer. Then, your money will be on the way! ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿ’ธ
