If a vendor prefers to be paid by ACH, users can configure this preference on the Vendor Record by changing the Payment Method to ACH. In addition to setting the Payment Method on the Vendor Record, the ACH Report type must also be selected on the Bank Record

When a payment is created for the vendor, the payment run generates an ACH file which can then be sent to the vendor's bank for processing. If an ACH file was not exported at the time of the payment run, it can be exported using the ACH Export in My Reports. Restaurant365 is also capable of producing positive pay exports.

Important Note: Although most banks allow for ACH upload, please contact your organization's bank to ensure that the account type is compatible with ACH uploads. Restaurant365 recommends sending your bank representative a sample of the available ACH report types.

Prepping the Bank Record for ACH

The ACH Report field on the Bank Record informs the software of the specific NACHA file format that should be used when exporting ACH payment files. Use the following logic to choose the option that best fits your organization:

  1. If your organization's bank appears in the ACH Report drop-down, select the option for your bank
  2. If the bank requires a balanced NACHA file, choose ACH with Offset.
  3. Otherwise, select ACH Export (default) 1. This is the national standard used by most banks.
