ACH in DomicoCloud with DomicoPay
Introduction to ACH
ACH, or automated clearing house is an electronic funds transfer system that pulls and transfers funds from one bank account to another. ACH is convenient for individuals and businesses as it is a secure and a low cost method for sending and receiving cash.
The ACH Network batches financial transactions together throughout the day, making ACH a quick method for receiving cash.
DomicoPay is a merchant service designed for Domico software and its users. Domico users not only enjoy low processing rates compared to industry competitors, but also benefit from consolidated processing.
The integration between DomicoCloud and DomicoPay keeps everything in one place. Furthermore, technical support for both products are handled by the same team of technicians. Customers using DomicoPay also receive same-day, maximum 2-hour callback for support requests. Support requests can be submitted via email, phone-in, or through our website form.

ACH (or Bank Draft) in DomicoCloud
The DomicoCloud storage facility software can accept ACH payments in two ways: (1) as a monthly autopay which is setup under User Info in the tenant’s profile screen or (2) as a one time draft in the Payment screen.
Once ACH has been properly setup by our team, using it to process ACH payments at your storage facility is relatively quick and easy.
ACH from Customer Portal
DomicoCloud comes with online account bill-pay, allowing your self storage tenants to access their unit(s) on their online Customer Portal to view transactions history, update contact and emergency contact information, as well as add payment methods which include ACH.
ACH Reports in DomicoCloud
DomicoCloud users can review data relating to ACH transactions using a few available reports in DomicoCloud. Below are screenshots of these reports exactly as they’re generated from DomicoCloud
Electronic Payments Report
The Electronic Payments Report groups payments by type (e.g. Visa, Discovery, MasterCard, Bank Draft). In addition, this report also lists declined and voided electronic payments.
Company Summary Report
The Company Summary Report is a robust yet simple view of the facility’s key numbers in 1-2 pages. Data relating to ACH/Bank Draft is listed under Deposits by Payment Type and Counts (# of Auto Bank Draft).
The screenshot above is an example of the Company Summary report only and does not completely show all the available sections of the report. Also, line items show up differently for all facilities depending on the DomicoCloud software setup of that facility.
In addition to listing all transactions for a given timeframe, the Transaction Log Report also lists Transaction Counts, totals for Payments Received and totals for Reversals.
