Accepting SEPA Direct Debit Transfers

Growth and Scale Plans

PayKickstart, supports SEPA wire transfers.  In order to accept SEPA wire transfers, you must have a Stripe account.

Note: SEPA Direct Debit is a pull-based, reusable and asynchronous method of payment. This means that you take action to debit the amount from the customer’s account. It can take up to 14 business days to confirm the success or failure of a payment.

Note: Refunds which are requested within eight weeks of the SEPA Direct Debit being debited will be provided by a payer’s bank on a no-questions-asked basis.

Step 1:

Inside your Stripe account, go to Payments >> Settings and request an invite to SEPA Direct Debit.

Step 2:

Add "Stripe" as a Payment Integration (only necessary if you didn't already add payment gateway).

In the Configure menu, click on "Integrations" >> Payment >> Add Gateway

Make sure you select Stripe and follow the instructions to connect your account.

Step 3:

Click on “Campaigns” then click on the Edit icon to get to the Campaign Settings page for the specific campaign you are integrating with.

In the Campaign Settings, Enable Wire Transfer and select the payment gateway account you just added on the Integrations page.


Vendors can accept both ACH and SEPA payments from customers.

If you do not want to accept either ACH or SEPA, please disable the payment type.

PayKickstart uses Stripes tokenization system and Stripe checks for fraud as part of the purchase process to ensure customers are not fraudulently using Iban numbers for SEPA transactions.
