giropay is a common payment method in Germany

Updated over a week ago

giropay is a German payment method based on online banking. It allows customers to complete transactions online using their online banking environment, with funds debited from their bank account. Depending on their bank, customers confirm payments on giropay using a second factor of authentication or a PIN.

giropay redirects customers to their website to authenticate the payment and then return them to your website where they are immediately notified about the success or failure of the payment. Learn more: giropay payments 💡
