My last Blog spoke of needing to change away from PayPal because of their abusive, Satanic policies. I know that this is coming in a bigger way one day soon. One day we won’t be able to buy or sell without taking the Mark of the Beast.
He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
PayPal is a beginning, however. The last Blog spoke of it being a big impossibility to try to create everything for yourself, especially because of the size of PayPal or Facebook, or financial institutions. PayPal will try to put pressure on other financial technology companies, they already have, so that they follow its lead. There are precious few companies like PayPal out there today. There is even a credit card manipulation company that PayPal uses which would be a no go. Because of this I have decided to go with an ACH (Automated Clearing House). They are much older than PayPal, and something PayPal doesn’t control, so it would take a government interaction to make them go away. It will come, but it will be some time yet.
So what is an ACH. An ACH acts off of your checking account. Instead of writing out a paper check, or initiating a debit or credit card transaction, the money moves automatically. An ACH account also is cheaper than a credit card, costing only about 50 cents per transaction. PayPal charges 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction.
I will have to go to my bank to see how to set it up. Because it is the weekend right now, George and I will have to go some time this coming week. George really helps me out with this. If you have a checking account, then you have everything you need. I know this will take some extra effort on the part of those who choose to use this, but it is really no more effort than setting up a credit card account.
Another question, is ACH safe?
If you’re concerned about security, ACH is a safe way to pay. In some ways, ACH is safer than writing checks. You only need to expose your bank account information once to establish ACH payments, whereas paper checks expose your information every time you write one. Checks can also get lost or stolen, while ACH payments move money directly from your account to your biller’s account.
I’ll let you know when I have it all ironed out. I will still accept PayPal until it is complete.
