How Do I Recharge a Rejected ACH R03 Transaction (No Account / Invalid Bank Account)?

Transactions trigger an ACH reject when they haven't been processed by the customer's bank or payment was not collected from or credited to your customer’s account. All return codes begin with the letter ‘R’ (i.e. ACH R01, ACH R02, ACH R03, etc.) and indicate that the transaction was not accepted. Depending on the reason for the reject, some transactions may be corrected and resubmitted. An ACH reject is similar to an overdraft in a personal checking account. It can take several days to receive an ACH reject notice.

    • Complete Reject: Ignore this ACH reject and remove it from the list of unhandled ACH rejects. You may want to attempt to collect the funds via a different form of payment. Example: credit card or cash.
    • Update & Recharge: Change the routing or account numbers and then process the check again.
