Most popular payment option in Germany with almost 40 million users

Pay with Giropay

Giropay is very popular in Germany and therefore ideal if your webshop focuses on German consumers. Making a payment via this payment method is very similar to iDEAL. Giropay is safe and trusted and runs entirely through the consumer's internet banking environment. More than 80% of the German banks have a connection with Giropay. This gives your webshop a reach of 40 million potential customers!

What is Giropay?

A webshop that offers Giropay as a payment method is especially interesting if you offer your products online in Germany. It is an accessible and guaranteed payment method; transactions take place directly through the consumer's banking environment. About 75% of German consumers have a Giropay payment card and can therefore easily make payments with this payment method. Austrian consumers can also use this payment service.

Add Giropay to your webshop

When the consumer chooses to pay with Giropay, he or she does not need to enter card details. On top of that, the payment screen has a familiar look and feel. This gives your customers a safe and secure feeling when they shop in your webshop. Every payment with this German payment method starts with entering the bank code and account number while the login procedure differs per bank. The consumer then goes through the identification process. This means that only the card holder can successfully complete a payment, which means that every Giropay payment is always guaranteed. And as an entrepreneur, you do not run any risk of chargebacks.
