eChecks

You can add bank accounts as payment methods in Spreedly to be used with a gateway’s eCheck service. We currently support eChecks at the following gateways:

A custom transparent redirect form can be used like so:


<form accept-charset="UTF-8" action="https://core.spreedly.com/v1/payment_methods" method="POST">
  <fieldset>
    <input name="redirect_url" type="hidden" value="http://example.com/transparent_redirect_complete" />
    <input name="environment_key" type="hidden" value="C7cRfNJGODKh4Iu5Ox3PToKjniY" />
    <input name="utf8" type="hidden" value="✓" />

    <input name="payment_method_type" type="hidden" value="bank_account" />

    <label for="full_name">Name</label>
    <input id="full_name" name="full_name" type="text" />

    <label for="bank_name">Bank Name</label>
    <input id="bank_name" name="bank_name" type="text" />

    <label for="bank_routing_number">Bank Routing Number</label>
    <input id="bank_routing_number" name="bank_routing_number" type="text" />

    <label for="bank_account_number">Account Number</label>
    <input id="bank_account_number" name="bank_account_number" type="text" />

    <label for="bank_account_type">Account Type</label>
    <select id="bank_account_type" name="bank_account_type">
      <options value="checking" />
      <options value="savings" />
    </select>

    <label for="bank_account_holder_type">Account Holder</label>
    <select id="bank_account_holder_type" name="bank_account_holder_type">
      <options value="personal" />
      <options value="business" />
    </select>

    <button type='submit'>Submit Payment</button>
  </fieldset>
</form>

The only required fields for a bank account are full_name (or first_name/last_name), bank_routing_number, and bank_account_number. The rest are optional at the Spreedly level, and whether you want to collect them will depend on what your gateway requires.

Currently only US bank accounts are supported, so the bank_routing_number must be a valid US ABA Number.

Valid values for bank_account_type are checking and savings, and valid values for bank_account_holder_type are personal and business.

A bank account looks like this when you pull it back out:


curl https://core.spreedly.com/v1/payment_methods/OpUmh75ttxO1TxEg7nPhEMeiqZ6.xml \
  -u 'C7cRfNJGODKh4Iu5Ox3PToKjniY:4UIuWybmdythfNGPqAqyQnYha6s451ri0fYAo4p3drZUi7q2Jf4b7HKg8etDtoKJ' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/xml'

Once you have a bank account payment method, you can run a purchase like so:


curl https://core.spreedly.com/v1/gateways/LlkjmEk0xNkcWrNixXa1fvNoTP4/purchase.xml \
  -u 'C7cRfNJGODKh4Iu5Ox3PToKjniY:4UIuWybmdythfNGPqAqyQnYha6s451ri0fYAo4p3drZUi7q2Jf4b7HKg8etDtoKJ' \

The settlement process for echecks is different from credit card transaction settlements. The docs on the Authorize.net site can help to explain. Authorize.net notifies you via email if an eCheck transaction eventually fails to settle, whether it be for insufficient funds, chargebacks, etc.
