ACH Network Volume Statistics

In 2018, the ACH Network processed nearly 23 billion payments, marking the fourth consecutive year in which it added more than 1 billion new payments. Those include Direct Deposit via ACH of salaries, dividends and Social Security and other government benefits, and Direct Payment via ACH for bill payments including utilities and mortgages, as well as charitable giving, tuition, subscription services, and person-to-person (P2P) and business-to-business (B2B) payments. The total value of these payments exceeded $51.2 trillion. An additional 4.1 billion "off-Network" transactions, consisting primarily of on-us ACH payments, with a small volume of ACH direct-send payments, brought the total ACH payments volume in 2018 to 27 billion transactions.

The ACH Network started 2019 with strong growth, as the number of payments in the first quarter increased 5.8% from a year earlier. ACH Network volume in the first quarter was 6 billion payments: 3.5 billion debits and 2.5 billion credits. Internet-initiated payments rose 10.3% to 1.6 billion. There were increases of more than 9% in both business-to-business (B2B) payments overall and in healthcare claim payments, to 927 million and 78 million, respectively. There was also a more than 25% jump in person-to-person transactions to nearly 36 million.
