This payment method is provided by Stripe in partnership with Plaid, a financial technology company. You must have a U.S. bank account in order to take advantage of ACH payments. This flow was designed with security in mind, which you can learn more about here. A few examples of other successful organizations currently using Plaid’s technology include Gusto, Venmo, and Charity Water.
