Introduction to ACH/EFT Payments in Connected

Using the “Electronic” payment method can be very useful for recording wire transfers, internet payments, and/or ACH/EFT payments.  Electronic payments do not require a check number and do not print on actual check stock when posted.  The electronic payment method can be used for any of the four different Connected payment types (Normal, Quick, Miscellaneous, and Prepayment). 


For example, if you need to wire payment to an overseas vendor the electronic payment method is an excellent way of accounting for the transaction.    In this case, a Prepayment can be issued using the Electronic payment method.

ACH/EFT Payments

The majority of information in our help articles focuses on generating batch payment files using ACH/EFT files.

In instances were replacing traditional checks is the priority, payment are made in Connected which is then followed by submitting a file to your bank that instructs them to pay your vendors.  This is typically referred to as ACH or EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer)



  • If your company is interested in obtaining pricing information for the EFT/ACH export file setup, please create a new support ticket request.  In the ticket request, please include the name of your financial institution and file format required (often provided by the bank).
  • In most cases, the current version of Connected is required to use payment export formats
