Is it a hard or soft pull?
BTW, by how many points does one credit score drop when it is a hard pull enquiry?

Talked to the CSR. They said that they don't offer any ACH. You can initiate ACH at other banks and it works fine, but you cannot initiate ACH through this bank. Was surprised that this feature was missing.
