I’m building an ACH file in Premier ACH, but I’m not sure which transaction codes to choose. What do they mean?

Choosing an incorrect code can cause an ACH transaction to reject. Listed are some common transaction codes:
Credit Transaction Codes
- 22 Checking Credit
- 23 Prenote Checking Credit
- 32 Savings Credit
- 33 Prenote Savings Credit
Debit Transaction Codes
