ACH Network Volume Statistics

Each quarter Nacha releases the volume and value of transactions conducted on the ACH Network.

2021 Q1 Volume and Value

The modern ACH Network saw volume soar in the first quarter of 2021, setting two new records in the process.

Quarterly volume of 7.1 billion payments was an increase of 11.2% from the same period in 2020. The value of those payments was $17.3 trillion, reflecting a nearly 19% increase from a year earlier.

The first new record was set in February, when ACH volume averaged more than 118 million payments per day, the ACH Network’s highest daily average for a month. 

The second was in March, when ACH volume hit 2.7 billion payments, the largest monthly volume in ACH Network history. This included approximately 110 million economic impact payments by Direct Deposit from the federal government.
