August 27, 2015 — eCheck API Solution Significantly Improves Speed of Funds Availability Versus ACH
LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) AUGUST 27, 2015
CheckAlt today announced a new partnership with Payoneer, a global leader in cross-border payments. Payoneer will use CheckAlt’s eCheck API solution to improve the speed by which it credits funds between business owners and professionals who are sending and receiving payments.
eChecks are processed in a Check 21 environment and do not utilize the ACH network. This approach means faster clearing, potentially fewer charge backs, simplified regulation and compliance. CheckAlt’s eCheck API easily integrates into existing websites, as well as desktop and mobile applications.
“CheckAlt is pleased to welcome Payoneer into the CheckAlt family,” said Shai Stern, co-chairman and CEO, CheckAlt. “Our eCheck API speeds up the availability of funds compared to ACH transactions, and it is less expensive than credit or debit cards. When you combine these benefits with our responsive Help Desk/Client Support team, you have a complete single-source partner.”
CheckAlt offers a comprehensive suite of item and payment processing solutions to help community banks and credit unions lower costs, improve efficiencies and expand their capabilities. Additionally, CheckAlt fosters disruptive innovation by investing in companies whose mission is to develop innovative FinTech solutions. Recent investments include Zipmark, Bankjoy, Fundomate and Street Invoice.
