What is an ACH payment?

Question by d man: What is an ACH payment?
I am wanting to set up a high and free checking account and one of the monthly requirements is to have at least one direct deposit or ACH payment. What is an example of an ACH payment. Would a payment like netflix be considered an ACH payment.

If you arrange for your Netflix monthly subscription fee to be automatically debited from your checking account, then that would be an ACH (Automated Clearing House) payment if you set it up that way. If you instead provided your debit card number, then that would NOT be an ACH payment.

ACH payments can be used for things like automatic payments to insurance companies, utility companies, etc. When you make these arrangements, just be sure to request an ACH or automatic checking account payment, using your routing and transit number and full account number (as it might appear on the bottom of your checks, assuming you have paper checks printed for your checking account). Again, do NOT provide your debit card number, as that would not be an ACH payment.
