When you sign up for Automatic Payments, your bank account will be drafted or your credit card will be charged to pay recurring invoices. Your payment card details are collected via secure payment processing services. ACS Technologies ("ACST") and our financial partners employ industry best practices to keep your information secure and are PCI certified.
ACST offers two automatic payment solutions:
- Secure Wire Transfer Drafts (ACH/EFT for U.S. or PAD for Canada)
- Automatic Credit Card Payments
Both solutions are safe and efficient ways to pay your monthly invoices.

As a precaution, ACST recommends that you always:
- monitor your credit cards and bank accounts for fraudulent activity
- practice smart security measures when using computers or mobile devices
- use all security features available to you
- train staff and limit how you use your accounts
Finally, if you suspect you’ve suffered a loss to fraud, contact your bank or credit card company immediately. If your bank is FDIC insured, you may be protected against loss. Most credit card companies are insured against fraud loss and will not hold you responsible for charges that were made illegally.
