SEPA Direct Debits

When paying for your subscription to one of our premium packages we offer a variety of solutions. This article explores SEPA credit transfers.


What is SEPA? A brief overview

SEPA is the acronym for the Single Euro Payments Area - a payment integration initiative with the aim of making cross-border bank transfers within the EU as simple as domestic transfers. At the time of writing, participating countries include the 27 member states of the EU, the 4 members of the EFTA and the UK.

The SEPA project challenges the fragmentation of the national markets for euro (€) payments to create a single domestic market.

Citizens, businesses and public authorities can make and receive cashless payments to any account within the SEPA using one account and one set of payment terms.

Bank accounts within any eurozone country can make and receive payments across the eurozone as if the transfers were made in the account’s home country - making it easier to receive things like salary payments whilst working abroad.

This doesn’t only benefit the account holders but the European economy as a whole - by standardising financial practices, developing the tech infrastructure and creating common procedures across regions, it is hoped that the SEPA project will reduce the cost of moving capital around the area by up to 3% of the GDP.
