You can now use Populi to accept electronic checks for online payments!
Electronic checks let you accept online payments straight from the payer’s checking account. To pay, just enter a routing number, an amount, and some other basic info—like what you’d find on a paper check—and click Pay Now. It’s pretty simple for the payer. On your end, the fees are lower than credit/debit card transactions, and the turnaround time is a fraction of that of paper checks.
To get set up with electronic checks, you’ll need to sign up for eCheck.net, an add-on product for Authorize.net payment gateway accounts. If you’re already using Populi with Authorize.net for credit card processing, you’re most of the way there. Just visit Authorize.net’s Merchant Services page and start your application. Once approved, get in touch with Populi Support and let us know you’d like to enable electronic checks.
