ACH Universal enables you to create ACH files and pay vendors, independent contractors, employees and collect from customers - without changing the way you work in QuickBooks.
During the setup process, ACH Universal will create fields for each customer, employee and vendor (see below). Then, you simply enter their banking information.
Then write checks, enter/pay bills, pay employees by direct deposit, collect from customers - all as usual.
From within ACH Universal - select/confirm transactions and create the ACH file.
For detailed steps, see ACH-QuickBooks How it Works.
You can send customized emails with the details of each QuickBooks payment.
Don't have email addresses for everyone? Not a problem, the system will only send emails for the QuickBooks payments you choose.
Emails include a 'check stub' remittance section for bill payments and non-payroll checks - and emails for payroll can be sent showing net pay.
For detailed payroll pay stub information, continue to use QuickBooks' email feature.

Frequently Asked Questions.
Q: I've got hundreds of vendors and I currently only have their mailing addresses. Do I need to get all of my vendors banking information?
A: You can start immediately and send ACH's to the vendors that you do have banking information for. We recommend starting with your larger vendors to minimize your check volume. While it's an admirable goal, realistically you'll always have some vendors to whom you'll send checks.
Q: What do I need from my bank?
A: Your bank will process the transactions directly. We generally recommend that you call the number on your bank statement and ask for the Treasury Management or Treasury Services department. Let them know that you want to send them an ACH file.
Tip: The Treasury Management/Services department is generally much better suited to answer these questions than your branch.
Q: If my bank is processing the transaction, why do I need ACH Universal?
A: In order to process your transactions, your bank is expecting the transactions in a specific format, called an ACH (NACHA) File. We enable you to create this file from QuickBooks. You can then upload the file directly to your bank.
Q: What happens if we switch banks?
A: You would sign up for ACH file service with your new bank and you can continue using ACH Universal. The ACH (NACHA) file is a standard within the U.S.
Q: Will ACH Universal enable me to also cut checks?
A: ACH Universal does not cut/print checks - it only produces the ACH file that is needed for your bank's processing.
Q: Same Day Payment - can I do it?
A: Yes, please check with your bank for their Same Day Payment details.
