New Requirements for Modern Account Validation and Its Impact on Payment Originators
Scott Goldthwaite, President, Aliaswire, Inc.
Dec. 8th, 1:40 pm ET
Nearly 27 billion payment transactions ran on ACH rails in 2020, and almost 30 billion are expected in 2021. This dramatic growth is a result of the reliability of ACH and the transformation to digital payments. But as ACH volume continues to grow, so does the risk of fraud. In order to address this issue, NACHA created the WEB Debit Account Validation Rule. In addition to reducing risk and fraud, these additional requirements reduce drop-offs and lost payers, as well as drive cost efficiencies. However, they can also add to the time required to validate accounts, slowing down payments at a time when they need to be faster.
In this discussion Goldthwaite will detail the specific account validation requirements involved and the options available to payment originators to meet them. He’ll also share how validation processes can be enhanced without slowing the flow of funds.
