The ACH Originations API enables partner applications to securely originate domestic ACH payment (credit) or collection (debit) requests. With an interface intentionally designed for simplicity, ACH origination doesn’t require extensive knowledge of National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) terminology or file format. This makes integrating with U.S. Bank easier and faster than ever before.
