ACH Debit & Credit Origination
Andover State Bank is an originating bank for Automated Clearing House (ACH) debits and credits, enabling us to initiate loan payments, memberships and other automatic transactions. ACH also eliminates the cost of check processing, postage, check reconciliation and lost or stolen checks.
Payroll Direct Deposit
Save time and money by directly depositing payroll into employee accounts. Using ACH, through secure messaging or online banking to transmit payroll files, we will electronically deposit payroll into designated employees’ accounts.
Merchant Bankcard Services
MasterCard and Visa Member(s): Electronically deposited into a commercial account, at the end of the month, a detailed report is generated summarizing all transactions processed throughout the month. A discount rate is determined through annual analysis of merchant activity.

Reduce Fraud: The Positive Pay system assists in seizing fraudulent activity by identifying counterfeit, altered or miscoded checks, and unauthorized copies. Interfaced with the bank’s teller system and overnight processing, alerts are generated before checks are cashed and/or paid including ACH. Suspect items are reviewed on a daily basis for pay or return decisions.
Monitor Checks: Positive Pay allows you to monitor your check writing activity:
- Compare checks paid against checks issued and identify suspect items
