According to a current study in the German-speaking region, direct debit is one of the three most popular payment types, apart from payment by invoice or PayPal. Electronic direct debiting is established in the German-speaking region and used by shop customers. Novalnet is your payment service provider enabling you to offer direct debit to German and Austrian customers.
The customer of the shop usually knows the account number and the bank code by heart and needs no additional passwords or registration processes. Furthermore, in case of non-delivery or similar disruptions, the customer can let the direct debit be transferred back at his bank within six weeks.
Many shop maintainers and online merchants however, are reluctant to use this payment type, as the protection from payment defaults is reduced by return debit notes. In order to nonetheless offer direct debit payment which is often requested, Novalnet offers the best protection from return debit by comprehensive and integrated fraud prevention and therefore increases your turnover.
