Uniform European payment system

Within the SEPA (Single Euro Payment Area), all euro payments, i.e. sending money within the SEPA area, and all direct debits across Europe are carried out according to the uniform SEPA payment procedures.

Easy to use

Private customers can send money within the SEPA area at any time, online, at self-service kiosks and at a branch. To pay with a SEPA direct debit, all you need to do is to provide the payment recipient with a SEPA direct debit mandate.


Benefit from uniform payment standards across Europe.

The new instrument for cross-border Euro bank payments to all SEPA countries.

Maximum flexibility – worldwide

Sending money to countries outside the SEPA zone is simple and can be done using a conventional international payment (SWIFT payment).

  • Account number or International Bank Account Number (IBAN) of the payment recipient (provided by the payment recipient).
  • International Bank Identifier Code (BIC) of the recipient's bank.
