Automated Clearing House (ACH)
- Collect funds electronically using ACH origination services from The First. Funds can be debited from bank accounts at any financial institution in the Country. Simply obtain an authorization from the account owner, and you can begin collecting funds electronically using The First’s Online Banking platform. Collecting funds electronically is most commonly used to collect funds from consumer accounts for monthly bills or dues. It is also used by businesses to concentrate funds from multiple bank accounts owned by the business, versus moving funds via check. Collecting funds via ACH is an efficient and cost-effective way to do business.
- Lockbox is an efficient and cost-effective method of collecting check payments. Businesses who collect check payments through the mail may be a viable candidate for utilizing Lockbox. Businesses will direct payments to be mailed to a PO Box established by the Bank on behalf of the client. On a daily basis, a representative from the bank will pick up checks that are mailed to the PO Box. The checks are then taken to the Bank’s Lockbox processing facility. The mail is opened, all contents are scanned, and the checks are deposited. Once the daily processing is complete, the images and deposit information is made available to the client through the RemitWeb online portal. Additionally, clients can request the Bank to capture data from remittance coupons. The captured data can then be put into a file format that allows payments to be automatically posted in the client’s accounting system.
