What is an EFT payment?

Editorial Team

An electronic funds transfer moves money from one account to another. The accounts can be at the same financial institution or at two different financial institutions. The transaction occurs electronically over a network. EFT transactions, often referred to as electronic banking, are done paper free, so there isn’t a need for cash or paper checks. EFT payments are processed through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network.
