Add Stripe ACH payments for both Woocommerce and Woocommerce subscriptions for businesses that don’t have debit/credit cards but want to be charge automatically through ACH

Hey there. Adding Stripe ACH to Woocommerce and Woocommerce Subscriptions is a neat idea for businesses without credit cards. But, let me tell you, it’s a bit of a tech hurdle. You gotta dance through Stripe’s ACH Mandates and do the micro-deposit verification boogie.
Here’s a tip from the trenches: Once you’ve set up the subscription, brace yourself because ACH doesn’t do payment retries. One-shot deal, kinda like a stubborn cat that won’t come back when called.
My take? It’s a bit of a tech tango, but hey, it could be worth it if ACH suits your business vibe. Maybe Stripe could smoothen this out in the future. Meanwhile, a workaround could be setting up friendly email reminders for folks who might forget to refill the ACH kitty. I would also recommend to pay attention to this technical solution: https://andersenlab.com/industries/financial-services/defi-development-services
Best of luck, and if you figure this out, share the secret handshake with us 🙂
yes add ACH to stripe and all WooCommerce payment options wherever able. Thanks.
It should be noted that this would be a relatively complicated feature to implement given Stripe’s technical conditions to establishing an ACH subscription:
– Must collect confirmation of “ACH Mandates”
– Must verify bank account with micro-deposits
Which even after establishing the subscription, the ACH payment method does NOT support payment retries.
But… it would still be pretty cool! 😀
So, this request has been repeatedly asked since 2017, always pushed out/sideways.

How ’bout an update on this 6-yr old request, please?
no update yet… still not supported. May, 2023.
Allowing customers to pay via ACH would be huge for some of my clients who have B2B ecommerce shops.
The only option I found is this plugin, but there is ZERO company info even though it’s well supported and FREE. https://wordpress.org/plugins/woo-stripe-payment/. Anyone have any info on them?
Would be great if ACH was simply a payment option, along with credit card, etc. during checkout.
Oh thats right you havent negotiated a piece for you yet you scum bags, always nickle and dime us.
ADD this feature, its available on stripe!!!!
Would also love this feature to cut down on subscription cancelations due to a canceled credit card.
This is very helpful for B2B companies and saves us from having to get new CC info everytime one expires
There’s already an enormous WordPress and WooCommerce ecosystem of tools for invoicing and requesting payments and Stripe is one of the most common payment processors. It would be amazing to be able to utilize Stripe ACH with the $5 processing fee cap for large invoices (consulting or services) or recurring subscriptions. Please add!!!
Is there any progress on this or any available solutions for ACH subscription payments?
Still, couldn’t this be incorporated into this plugin? I mean it looks like just a few post requests to both validate account information and bill an account. Would be nice not to have to pay $200 for a plugin. Also, the docs on this plugin says ACH is not supported by Stripe but it is now, so maybe the developers could look into it, or at least update the Docs to say they have no intentions of adding the feature…
There are a couple plugins that enable the Stripe ACH gateway for Woocommerce, but to my knowledge the team at Woo has yet to enable any of these for their Subscriptions plugin. I’m looking into using Chargebee for recurring ACH payments since I can’t find a solution to this. I hoped to use Woocommerce as I have Cartflows funnels and Learndash integrated with Woocommerce. I need ACH so I might have to custom dev an integration for Subscriptions but it seems like this should be native to Woo Subscriptions.
