Once you’ve created, that’s it. Your ACH is now linked and you’ll need to verify.

Verifying your ACH Account

In order to use the newly added ACH account, you’ll need to verify the account. This is done in the form of microdeposits made to the account added.

You can do this by going to the ACH account and clicking the ‘Edit’ button:

When you click edit, you’ll be provided with the screen where you can verify the microdeposits that were made to your account.

Verification can be completed by checking the accounting statement for the microdeposit amounts of ‘$0.XX’. There should be two deposits, you’ll enter both amounts in the provided fields.
