Why does my payment take two bank business days to credit to my account?
When most banks electronically transfer money with another bank, the money goes through a secure network called the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system.

Basically, they pull their customers' transfer requests together each bank business day and send them off to the ACH. That system then pulls together all the files they receive from thousands of banks each bank business day and routes the transfers to the appropriate receiving bank. All of this generally takes two bank business days. Add an extra day for federal holidays.
