How does the Bank Account (ACH) payment process work?

Once you have created a transfer you will be asked to select a Payment Method so you can pay the transfer amount to WorldRemit. Select “Bank Account” and you will be directed to your bank login so that you can enter these details safely in order to authorise your payment. Once you have logged in, you will be able to select the account from which you would like to pay. This will set up a one-time debit from your checking account to ours. It means that these login details will need to be entered each time you make a payment via ACH.
