Nacha Update – ACH’s Spatial Position in Payments

Jeanette will provide attendees with important updates on several key issues regarding the ACH Network. Did you know that Same Day ACH was increased to $1M per entry for both debit and credit?

For example, you’ll hear about the success story of business-to-business payments which saw an increase of 13% in 2022, and about micro-entries and how Nacha is addressing those payments as the industry moves to implement stronger controls, and everything in-between to ready your organization for participation with ACH.
