Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) payment is a method of payment more commonly known as direct deposit. Instead of mailing a paper check that you will have to manually deposit, with ACH, your payment will automatically be routed to your bank account, resulting in faster payment.
We want to make sure you receive your royalty payments as soon as possible, so direct deposit is Universal Music Group's preferred method of payment to our clients.
Note: If you are unable to sign up for ACH or Wire Transfer, a paper check will be mailed to you to the address we have on file. To set up paper checks, click here to contact a member of our Service team.
