Re: [NYC-rb] Sending Bank/Wire/ACH Payments via an API

Hey Avi,

I am one of the founders of Zipmark ( Most of the APIs
out there for directly interfacing with ACH are pretty archaic.  You
can probably find a bank that accepts flat files and processes them
prior to a preset cutoff during the day.

Feel free to contact me off list about how we help people do payments
similar to what you describe, but with a modern API.  We just started
to open up the doors to our developer program, you can request access
at http://dev.zipmar...­
