When you’re integrating payments, you have to make the smartest decision on how to move money therein. One great (and cost-effective) payment method is utilizing ACH transfers within your platform. Many businesses are able to reduce costs incurred by high card processing fees when bank transfers would be a better fit in the first place—such as in the disbursement process.

The good news: integrating ACH payments is now more simple and flexible than ever with Dwolla’s bank transfer API. Whether you’re moving money between users’ bank accounts or paying out thousands of service providers, consider an ACH solution.

Here are some proven examples of companies integrating with the Dwolla’s ACH API to improve payments:
