Significantly cheaper than paying credit card processing, ACH fees typically run between $0.50 and $1.00 per transaction. Some companies charge a small variable fee (0.10%) for large transactions. All the customer does is give you a bank routing number and their account number.
Quickbooks does that...download transactions when done so you don't have to enter data
