ACH Direct Debit
FastSpring supports ACH Direct Debit payments from US customers with a US or Canadian bank account using the Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments system operated by NACHA.
Unlike credit cards, there is no real time authorization mechanism therefore it can take 3-5 days to receive notifications if a sale or refund have completed. ACH payments are not guaranteed so chargebacks are possible.
FastSpring checkout has been updated to include a checkbox and NACHA compliant language.
We call this an online mandate collection, where the buyer explicitly agrees to NACHA language and gives consent to FastSpring to collect funds either one time or at regular intervals from the buyer’s bank account. Without accepting these terms we would not be able to initiate payment.
FastSpring invoices have been updated for ACH and will display both debtor and creditor details.

ACH Direct Debit transactions can fail any time after the payment is initiated from the FastSpring checkout page. These failures can occur for a number of reasons, such as:
- Insufficient funds
- An invalid account number
- A customer disabling debits from their bank account
Once the payment fails FastSpring will cancel the order and trigger notifications(webhook and emails) to the seller.
