Please allow the acceptance of eChecks / ACH payments
We have authorize.net as our payment gateway, which does allow for the acceptance of eChecks, only your forms are not enabled for that type of payment. Please enhance your payment types to include the acceptance of eChecks through authorize.net! Thank you!

We are attempting to utilize a e-Check payment button to facilitate renewal payments but the lack of integration between WA and AffiniPay is presenting road blocks at every juncture. It will only work on one screen and disappears if a member chooses to delay payment or for a new applicant. Please offer this capability!

Please give an update on this ANCIENT request. It's 2023 for goodness sake, should be able to use ACH.

Any updates? Affinipay supports ACH payments, and we simply cannot afford the 2.9% overhead of card processing for our membership dues. For certain events and things, members may choose to pay by card, so it is nice having options, but we simply can't cut over to WA payments until we have an ACH optoin.
This would be very help for non profit clubs. Anyway, we can make it easier for online payments the better.
This would be a good feature to have. Our members are older and would pay for trips by check to avoid the payment processing fee we pass on to them. A lot of them said they would pay online if they could do ACH payments. This would make it easier for them. It would also make it easier for us as we would not have to manually enter 1,000s of payments for events, memberships, and now trips. Most all of the Payment processors WA integrates with accepts ACH payments and the tech to do so has been around since 1972. How can WA not accept ACH payments?
Affinipay supports ACH transactions. Get it in gear and add the payment option. It would be very helpful and eliminate many manual transactions we have to now do.

It would be useful to be able to accept ACH payments through our payment options

Oleg - back in 2017, the statement was made that this might happen by the end of that year. It is now 2020. We just became Wild Apricot subscribers and paid for a year in advance. I can honestly say that I would probably have gone with a different provider if I had known that ACH/EFT payments were not accepted. Most of our small owners are on a tight budget as it is and are not fans of paying credit and debit card processing fees. Which means, they will continue to send me in paper checks each month to pay their dues. For me, this defeats the purpose of having an online membership login presence because it doesn't reduce the workload for me on the back end.
Other property management and association management software include ACH/EFT processing as default, so it is surprising that a solution like Wild Apricot is so far behind the times on payment acceptance options.
Hoping for a positive resolution to this before our renewal next year.
No news here unfortunately

Any progress on this?
It would be a huge help to add e-check integration with AffiniPay! Please consider having this integrated soon, as it has been requested by many over the span of 8 years.
Please add ACH (e-check) integration with AffiniPay in addition to credit cards.

Process electronic checks for payment

Support for EFT payments like Interac all over the world would be a terrific value add for WA Payments! +1

Accept Debit (Interac) payments through Wild Apricot Payments.
I would be really beneficial to accept Debit Transactions
Anita Byrnes commented
I agree that an interface with POLI would be ideal for AU/NZ organizations

There needs to be a tender option for "ACH"
1. We always have to balance between different features to work on having limited resources. Right now we are just focused on another stuff.
2. Techincally, we're not ready to accept ACH payments. These are different beasts than credit card payments (the main difference is that payment confirmation comes in several days, not seconds). We have to prepare our payments architecture for such types of payments first. This is something that is still in works right now.

Oleg, could you provide more detail as to why this is not a priority?
