Sofort is the most widespread payment method in Germany.

Based on wire transfer, it allows the buyer to be redirected to the secure payment site of his/her bank and thus to transfer the amount to pay to the merchant's account.

The merchant receives a real-time confirmation of payment, allowing him to ship the order more quickly.

Sofort Banking covers a large majority of Banks in several European countries, which makes it an essential payment method if you are willing to develop your business in Europe.
