SEPA Direct Debit

Improve the customer experience for buyers in the EU
Connect your funnel to SEPA Direct Debit, a popular bank-to-bank payment system. SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) is available to customers in 35 participating countries in Europe, including all EU members.
SEPA Direct Debit only processes payments in euros.
SEPA Direct Debit supports recurring payments and upsells. Payment processing is handled through Stripe, which is great news for Funnelish users. Adding a SEPA Direct Debit payment method to your funnel is fast and easy if you have an active Stripe account.
After you create a gateway one time, you use it again on any number of funnels.
