All Payment Methods: Bank Transfer

Bank transfers are a popular, cost-efficient payment method leveraged around the world. They allow shoppers to make payments online directly from their bank account to a merchant’s bank account. Bank transfers are typically processed within 3 to 4 business days and are limited to bank accounts within the same country, with the exception of SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) where shoppers are able to leverage bank transfers across countries in Europe. Most often bank transfer payments are used by shoppers to pay bills.
