What is an ACH payment transaction?

What is an ACH payment transaction? | 21st_Century Good: Social and Content | Scoop.it

"It’s a payment vehicle. Paper money and credit cards are also payment vehicles. Some might say PayPal is a payment vehicle also, but the underlying payment vehicles that actually transmit funds for a transaction are ACH and/or a credit card. ACH stands for Automated Clearing House, which is an electronic banking transaction network that’s regulated by NACHA."
