Update: ClearXchange went out of business. This option is no longer available.

Over a year ago I implemented a few methods to allow customers to pay for services without writing a check. Thinking most people have a Google account of some sort, I thought Google Wallet payments might be the answer.

In order to meet more people’s needs, I have signed up with clearXchange. This makes it possible for more customers to send payment directly from their bank account.

What is clearXchange?

ClearXchange is a digital payments network, used by top banks that allows people and businesses to easily and securely send money to anyone or receive money from anyone with a U.S. bank account.

This means there’s no need to set-up or fund a separate account with various payments systems (like Paypal, Square, Venmo etc…) and network users benefit from bank-level security and privacy.

In plain English, clearXchange “talks” to your bank so they transfer your money with flawless efficiency and the recipient has no access to your bank information.

How to pay for services if you bank with a Network Bank

If you bank with 1 of the 7 the network banks, you can easily sign into your bank website and send a payment. A few examples of these banks and the instructions can be found here:

Bank of America: http://promo.bankofamerica.com/sendmoney/

WellsFargo. https://www.wellsfargo.com/online-banking/transfers/surepay/

US Bank. https://www.usbank.com/online-mobile-banking/send-money.aspx

If you do not bank with one of these 7 banks: Non-Network banks

If you don’t bank with one of these banks, you can see if your bank does p2p payments using something such as Popmoney.

Tips for an easy online payment

Payments can be sent using our email address and phone number. Should your bank ask you for a name, it should be paid to Happy Trails & Wag’n Tails. One customer input HappyTrails as the first name and WagnTails as the last name to get the payment to go through.

On clearXchange, if they ask you to provide your street address, post office boxes are not accepted, it has to match your last known street address on your driver’s license.
