ACH Payments via Western Union

Summary

ACH debit origination is offered to all Mineraltree customers through our partnership with Western Union, and MineralTree will work with Western Union to create and register accounts on a behalf of a customer desiring ACH payments.  Any US bank account can be used as a payment account for these ACH payments and no additional fees are ever involved.

Setup

Western Union Business Services - Account Setup

Customers must complete the GlobalPay Application Pack MT WUBS Agreement. Many sections in the application are pre-filled with data from the MineralTree on boarding process. In addition, the customer authorizes settlement against each account that will be used for ACH payments.  Please contact MineralTree support to enable this feature.

When applications are approved, Western Union provides a Client ID to MineralTree to be used during payment processing.  Once MineralTree receives the completed application, setup with Western Union typically takes 2-3 weeks.

Settlement Limits and Processing Time

As part of the setup process, Western Union will establish a settlement limit for every new customer. Batches of payments under this limit will be processed without delay (see below).  Companies can qualify for up to $350k based on the application materials and/or a bank reference check. To raise the limit further, a financial review may be necessary. In the rare case that a limit cannot be established for a company (bad credit, poor cash position), ACH payments can still be issued via Western Union; however, an additional 5 day delay will be instituted in accordance with a goodfunds model (see below).
