Sertifi Workflow Recipe: Reducing Hotel Payment Processing Costs with ACH

Ready to save more time and revenue with Sertifi? In addition to card payments, Sertifi lets you accept ACH payments (eChecks), an electronic payment transferred between U.S. bank accounts by the Automated Clearing House Network (ACH) network. 

Even if you’re already accepting wire transfers, ACH payments are a great way to drive down your overall costs (more on that in this related blog post). 

By enabling ACH payments, Sertifi customers: 

  • Reduce transaction costs (fees for ACH are significantly lower than card fees).  
  • Save thousands in fees within 1-2 months of turning it on.  
  • Reduce processing times and lost time manually handling paper checks.
In this short demo series, learn more about how you can get started using ACH payments with Sertifi.

After a customer receives your payment request, all they have to do is provide their payment information via the Sertifi form and electronically sign the corresponding document (like a contract or disclaimer document). Including a document for cardholder signature is a great way to defend against a chargeback if one comes up.

And that’s it! ACH is simple for your staff and even simpler for your guests. If you’ve already decided to offer the card payments, it’s a no brainer to add ACH to help drive down your costs.
