Update: Same Day ACH is here. If you’re interested in making Same Day ACH payments, learn more about how Dwolla can help.


Mandatory Same Day ACH is coming soon, and the phased rollout of Same Day ACH looks like:

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.
