Phase 1 - September 2016 (for payouts): Ability to receive and process Same Day credits becomes mandatory, the 10:30AM ET and 2:45PM ET processing windows open and the new 1:00PM ET and 5:00PM ET settlement times open.
Phase 2 - September 2017 (payout and collect payments): Ability to receive and process Same Day credits and debits becomes mandatory.
Phase 3 - March 2018 (make funds available by end of business day): Make eligible Same Day ACH funds (i.e. sent before the cut-off window) available to the payee by end of business on the same day.
Here are some things that are different about Same Day ACH:
- Transactions should post same day instead of next day.
- New payment settlement windows are being added.
- It will be more expensive than regular ACH.
Dwolla is kicking off the preparation for Same Day ACH by starting the discussion with our banking partners. We would like to bring it to our current customers when it becomes available.
We’ve built our branded products at Dwolla.com and our white label APIs to be future ready to integrate new payment types, like Same Day ACH. We’re well-acquainted with the ACH network and well positioned to help your business manage the new Same Day ACH functionality.
