Can I extend my payment deadline?

Yes, you can extend payment deadlines for your orders.

You can make the change easily in My BillPay. You can shift the date of payment by 5, 30 or 60 days. The first time you login, please use your e-mail address and your BillPay order number, which you can find on your invoice. You can then set a new password. Currently, a payment extension is only available for invoice and direct debit payments in Germany and only applies to orders that are up to a certain value.

I cannot pay via BillPay.

BillPay verifies the identity and creditworthiness of customers who wish to pay with BillPay.
Unfortunately it is not possible to offer all customers payment via BillPay. There may be a number of reasons for this:

  • Your address cannot be verified. This may be the case if you have recently moved.
  • You have provided a company address.
  • You have entered a nickname ( e.g. Tom instead of Thomas), or an alias.
  • The billing address differs from the delivery address.
  • The delivery address is not a valid address.
  • BillPay or the data sources BillPay uses have had a negative payment experience with the customer.
  • There are too many unpaid orders with BillPay. Please check any outstanding bills and pay them so you can make further purchases via BillPay.

What is giropay?

Giropay is an online payment method that is offered as a service by over 1,500 banks.

Based on online banking with PIN and TAN numbers it allows an easy, straighforward and safe way to make online transfers directly from your ‘My BillPay’ account. All you need is a giro account from a participating bank that is registered for online banking. Usually customers are offered giropay free of charge!

The payment takes place directly in the safe online banking area provided by your bank. Therefore, we can guarantee that sensitive and personal data is only exchanged between you and your bank. No third party has access to your personal or account information.

More information about giropay is available here.

How does giropay work?

With giropay you can pay in a way that is easy, fast and safe via an online transfer using PIN and TAN numbers.

That’s why we direct you to the online banking service provided by your bank. Log in the way you normally do using your access data. After a successful login a transfer is automatically generated. To process the transfer you just have to enter a TAN number. For security purposes you will receive a confirmation of the successful payment shortly afterwards.

About SEPA
+
-
What is SEPA?

SEPA replaced the previous national direct debiting systems on 01.02.2014. The introduction of SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) was initiated by the EU in March 2000. The SEPA payment procedure simplifies cashless payments and direct debits within the European Union, the European economic area, as well as Switzerland and Monaco. Transactions and direct debits to SEPA-countries will be as fast and as simple in the future as domestic payments are today.

+
-
What is IBAN and BIC?

The IBAN (International Bank Account Number) and the BIC (Business Identifier Code) replace the account number and the sort code. IBAN and BIC must be used from 01.02.2014.

+
-
Where do I find my IBAN and BIC numbers?
Your IBAN and BIC numbers can be found in your online bank account, on your bank statements and/or on your cash card. If you cannot find your IBAN and BIC, please enter your account number and sort code into the converter below. We will then convert them for you. The conversion is not guaranteed and is currently only available for German accounts.
+
-
What is preliminary information?

Every notification (e.g. invoice, policy, agreement) provided to the payer by the debit note issuer, which announces a collection via SEPA direct debit is considered to be preliminary information. Preliminary information must include the payment due date and the exact payment amount and may require multiple direct debits. It must be sent to the payer a reasonable amount of time before the due date so that the payer has the chance to prepare for the debit and ensure there are sufficient funds in the account. The manner of providing the preliminary information is in line with the collection agreement made between the payee and the payment provider.

+
-
What is a mandate?

A SEPA direct debit mandate is the legitimation for the collection of SEPA direct debits. A mandate includes the consent of the payer to the payment collection via SEPA direct debit to the payee, as well as the instruction to the appropriate payment provider of the encashment of the payment.
