What is Direct-Debit?
Direct debit uses the same ACH system that electronic checks do, but it eliminates the need for writing checks altogether. With direct-debit your customer gives you permission to take funds directly out of his checking account and transfer them to yours. Direct-debit is typically used for recurring billing. But, it can also be used with an Online Payment Gateway to enable your customers to purchase your products or pay their bills directly from a checking account instead of with a credit card.
