HERNDON, Virginia, June 6, 2022 – Today, Nacha announced a partnership with Phixius and Aliaswire that will enable financial institutions, fintechs and businesses that originate a small volume of ACH transactions to comply with Nacha’s WEB Debit Account Validation Rule. Phixius by Nacha is a trusted peer-to-peer network for the efficient and safe exchange and verification of payment-related information. The partnership will enable lower volume ACH users to utilize Phixius as a safe, secure and fast option to verify the routing and account numbers for ACH payments.
“Many smaller organizations came to Nacha looking for options to comply with the WEB Debit Account Validation Rule and validate account information,” said George Throckmorton, Managing Director of Strategic Initiatives & Network Development at Nacha who oversees Phixius. “The partnership with Aliaswire will ensure that all financial institutions, fintechs and businesses offering consumer ACH debits will have a reliable option to verify the consumers’ account information in compliance with the Nacha Rule.”
“We are excited to partner with Nacha’s Phixius to provide a real-time option for low-volume originators to comply with the WEB Debit Account Validation Rule,” said Scott Goldthwaite, President of Aliaswire.
“We considered multiple options to comply with ACH account validation requirements for our Account Opening Solution,” said Jose Maldonado, Director of Solutions Engineering at ProcessMaker, a company participating in the partnership. “This solution scales to our needs.”
