Automated Clearing House (ACH)
Modern business runs on the ACH network. F&M Bank’s Online Banking for Business ACH service is a highly efficient way to initiate credits and debits to business and consumer accounts. This quick, low-cost method of meeting your payment schedules provides you absolute control over the timing of disbursements, doesn’t tie up funds during the check clearing process and frees up administrative time. Bonus: ACH transfers can also help decrease check fraud.
Use ACH for:
- Employee direct deposit. Send paychecks, expense reimbursements, bonuses or commissions to employee accounts at any U.S. bank.
- Vendor payments. Send electronic payments to vendors and suppliers.
- Business-specific fees. Collect one-time and recurring lease payments, donations, membership dues and tuition payments.
- Cash concentration. Gather and concentrate funds among various U.S. banks.
- Payouts. Deliver dividends and interest payments, among many other possibilities.
Remote Deposit Capture
We understand that making a bank run during the day can take up valuable time. With Remote Deposit Capture, F&M Bank business customers can make daily electronic deposits using a desktop scanner and software. It’s the quickest, most convenient way to get checks from your desk to the bank.
Smart Pay Express
Need the ability to accept online payments or donations? Smart Pay Express (SPE) is the easy answer for small businesses, non-profit organizations and other groups who don’t use a shopping cart feature but still want to collect funds electronically. SPE requires minimal setup and is perfect for businesses without IT resources.
Use SPE to:
- Offer online payments and donations through a custom-branded website
- Incorporate a secure online option without hiring technical support
- Enhance donor satisfaction and provide 24-hour access to donation channels

A wire transfer is the most expedient way to move funds between your F&M business account and other bank accounts. Use it for domestic or international transactions in which no cash or check exchange is involved. The account balance is debited electronically, and the funds are transferred to another account in “real time.”
Wire transfers deliver:
- A convenient, seamless approach to transferring money
- Freedom from phone calls and trips to the bank
- Easy access through Online Banking for Businesses
Wire transfers are subject to approval and require Online Banking for Businesses.
