Check by Phone. For single entry debit transactions to a consumer's account pursuant to an oral authorization obtained from the consumer via telephone. This type of transaction may only be used when there is no standing authorization for the origination of ACH entries to the receivers account and may only be originated when there is either (1) an existing relationship between the Originator and the Receiver, or (2) no existing relationship between the Originator and the Receiver, but the Receiver has initiated the telephone call.
WEB - Internet-Initiated Entry
Internet Check from a Website. A debit entry to a Consumer Account initiated by an Originator pursuant to an authorization that is obtained from the receiver via the Internet. There are two components of the definition that are important to address:

An authorization that was obtained from the receiver in person, through the mail, or over the telephone in order to effectuate an Internet payment is not to be initiated as a WEB transaction.
- credit entries cannot be initiated except for reversals of WEB debit entries.
