Understanding Giropay payments with Worldline Sips
Giropay is a popular mean of payment in Germany, based on real-time bank transfers.
Payments made by Giropay are 100% guaranteed.
When the customers choose to pay for their order using Giropay, they must first of all choose their bank by taping their bank code. Once redirected to the interface of their bank, all they have to do is to authenticate themselves and confirm the bank transfer.
To use Giropay, your customers don't need to create a specific account; all that is required is that their bank allows Giropay payments.
