SOFORT banking (formerly known as Direct ebanking) is a variation on payment via bank transfer and enables customers to pay from a number of countries using their own familiar banking environment. This is an excellent option if you also want to sell your products or services outside the Netherlands. This payment solution is particularly popular in Germany, although consumers in countries such as Austria and Belgium are also increasingly using it.
Around 20,000 banks in the EU support SOFORT banking’s online payment system. Account holders at these banks can use the payment service via their own banking environment.
