BillPro offers a true cross-border payment alternative to credit cards, including:

featured-idea iDEAL Payments in the Netherlands dominates the bank transfers market there with 59.5% market share. Bank transfers are by far the most popular payment method among Dutch consumers, accounting for more than 63% of all transactions. Consumers make more than 13 million payments via iDEAL every month, and that number is steadily rising. iDEAL payments have grown at more than 20% or higher each year since the company’s founding in 2006.

featured-epsEPS is Austria’s Electronic Payment Standard for in-country consumers with online banking access. EPS is linked to all banks in Austria and handles nearly half the market for bank transfers within its borders. Bank transfers account for nearly 1/3 of all Austrian transactions, and most of those transfers are conducted online in real time. In addition, EPS is now connected with Giropay of Germany to provide seamless cross-border e-payments for EPS and Giropay users.

Giropay connects to more 70% of the banking network in Germany, where Giropay is a popular service among shoppers who prefer to pay for online purchases via direct bank transfers. Giropay is heavily advertised in Germany which contributes to its high adoption rate among the country’s online banking users. Together, Giropay and EPS deliver access to nearly 40 million shoppers across Germany and Austria.

featured-sofoSofort, another popular German provider of bank transfer services, is connected to more than 90% of Germany’s banks and has more than 12 million users. Sofort also offers multicurrency payment options and is available in a dozen other European countries: Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK. In late 2013, the company merged with Klarna of Sweden to form Klarna Group, one of the continent’s leading payment providers.

Przelewy24, often referred to as P24, is a popular bank transfer service in Poland, where bank transfers account for the majority (44.6%) of consumer transactions. P24 is linked to all of Poland’s major banks—nearly 100 in all–and has captured approximately 9% of the Polish market.

featured-fastFaster Payments is positioned as UK’s sole always-on, real-time bank transfer system, processing some 100 million payments each month across England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Faster Payments is connected to the UK’s major banks, including Barclay’s, Lloyds, and the Royal Bank of Scotland. The system handles online, mobile, and telephone payments, offering a wide range of instant-transfer options for users. Faster Payments maintains a high transaction limit of 100,000; some member banks have lower but still relatively high limits.

Teleingreso in Spain offers a cash-in online payment service that allows customers to make a purchase online, receive a unique transaction code, and use it to pay with cash or a card at a local Teleingreso location. The service improves merchant access to unbanked Spanish consumers and those who are concerned about data security and personal privacy online.
