Increased ACH Transaction Cap
Previously, customers using QuickBooks Payments for ACH transactions were restricted to a $50,000 cap per individual transaction. This improvement eliminates the need for merchants to split bills or initiate multiple ACH payments for larger sums. Eligible merchants can now seamlessly process single ACH transactions of up to $100,000.
For businesses involved in industries or transactions that often surpass the previous cap, the increased limit supports more efficient operations. This is particularly beneficial for businesses dealing with high-value clients, vendors, or financial transactions on a regular basis. However, note that this is a cap increase, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that all your transactions below $100,000 will be approved.

QuickBooks GoPayment is a free mobile app that allows businesses to process payments on the go. Whether keying in card details on a mobile device or using a mobile card reader for in-person transactions, this app offers flexibility for many businesses.
