What is Direct Debit?

Direct Debit / Automatische incasso is payment method allowing for automatic charge of customer’s bank account. Your customer submits you with bank information (typically bank name, IBAN and BIC numbers) and agree for future charges. Using those details you then can charge your customer’s bank accounts in automated fashion, without the need to ask customer to submit/authorize bank transfer on their end.

What is SEPA Direct Debit?

SEPA stands for Single Euro Payments Area. SEPA Direct Debit allows charging euros from customer’s bank accounts, provided that customer bank is in Europe and your bank is within SEPA zone.

Why should I care?

SEPA Direct Debit is now implemented in all eurozone countries, and all EUR payments must be collected via SEPA scheme. For other european countries it will become a standard on October 2016. Chances are you are using SEPA already:
