EuroDebit Powered by SEPA

The solution to process European debit transactions using SEPA

Overview

The EuroDebit®/SEPA payment system is the most widely used form of online payment in Europe for both one-time and recurring payments. The Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) initiative created a zone for the euro in which all electronic payments are considered domestic, and where there is no difference between national and intra-European cross border payments.
