Draft payment is auto payment from the customer’s bank account to your bank account. It is a kind of auto payment. In this case, if the draft issuing bank guarantees an automated draft payment, the payment of the amount and the payment clearance of such drafts is cleared by the automatic clearing house, which is also known as ACH.
It is essential to move the business to auto-draft billing and collection of payments from the customer’s bank. It makes it very easy for the company and for the customers and the payments are secured with the draft issuing banks.
The cash flow in the auto-draft payment system is immediate, and therefore it saves a lot of time and effort, and the payments are the direct link from the issuing bank through customer accounts and not from credit agencies or payment cards. Moreover, since the price in the auto draft is from the bank to the bank, therefore it is an excellent way to eliminate the fraud which is caused due to use of other forms of payments like debit cards or credit cards, or internet banking.
Another reason why ACH is a better option is that they function at a meagre cost to the customer as well as the business, and therefore it is highly recommended for both of them to avoid unnecessary high transaction costs. And your flow of cash is automatically improved when there is automatic payment activated, which is healthy for the company’s financial soundness.
