Check21/Remote Deposit Capture
Our gateway system supports traditional remote deposit capture, allowing merchants to scan and deposit checks from a desktop of their choice.

What is the different between ACH and RCC processing?
ACH transactions are processed over the ACH network. RCC transactions are processed via the traditional federal reserve Check21 cash letter protocols. RCC mimics the ACH network; however, RCC offers a great deal of space to place info in the transaction where ACH does not. Our RCC return codes are the same as ACH. RCC allows for leniency in return rates; however, at PPA our return rate requirements remain the same across both networks.
