What is the difference between an automatic draft (for online bill payments) and ACH payments?

Question by Genevie: What is the difference between an automatic draft (for online bill payments) and ACH payments?
I have recently set up a very basic savings account at my mothers credit union and yesterday when I called the credit union to ask if I could set up online payments to come out of this account, the teller told me that this account only accepts ACH payments. What does that mean?

She might have meant ACH deposits only.
Like direct deposit from your employer.
All savings accounts I know do not allow debits to pay your bills.
For this, you would need a checking account.

*That’s the difference between a savings account and a checking.
If you could pay bills with a savings account, then there would be no difference between the two accounts.
They would both be called checking accounts.
