eps

Secure payment method offered by the Austrian and German banks


The eps online transfer system is a secure payment method that is offered by the Austrian and German banks. It allows account holders to easily and quickly pay for purchases using their own trusted online banking service. 80% of merchants in Austria and Germany accept eps online payment. The bank transfer is made at the initiative of the consumer, and the payment is "pushed" to the bank account of the merchant. By accepting eps as an online payment method, you get access to more than 3 million Austrian online banking customers. The eps system is supported by all the major Austrian banks and is free of charge to consumers, who do not have to register separately as they are automatically enrolled through their bank.

When a consumer is initiating an online payment with eps, they simply select their own bank and are then redirected from the merchant’s website to the secure login page of their financial institution. After successfully logging on to their account using their account number and PIN, all relevant payment details are automatically filled in, and the transaction is presented for approval. The consumer then simply authorizes the payment by using the banks verification method, such as a unique security code that was provided via a mobile or other device. The consumer then receives a purchase confirmation and is returned to the merchant's website.

By offering eps as an additional payment method, merchants can increase their sales, as credit cards are not needed. Payments via eps are in real-time and cannot be cancelled or reversed. Therefore, merchants are also guaranteed payment from the purchase. The eps transactions are in Euros, but they are conveniently and automatically exchanged to our merchant’s preferred own currency. Local native language customer support is included via phone and email. Alternative Payments provides the eps service complete with access to secure admin pages and detailed reports, and the eps payment option is easily integrated into a merchants website together with our other alternative and traditional payment options.
