For financial institutions, Same Day ACH will cost 5.2 cents a transaction, a fee that the ODFI will pay to the RDFI. Currently, traditional ACH transfers cost fractions of a penny. ACH operators usually collect these fees as part of a monthly billing process.
While financial institutions will be required to make the updates needed to receive Same Day ACH credits by September 2016, it will be their choice on how to make that functionality available. For instance, financial institutions may charge businesses for sending (originating) Same Day ACH payment functionality.
