Further Payment Methods

To do so, proceed as follows:
1. Log in to your Stripe account using the following link:
2. Under "Payments > Settings", you can activate your preferred payment methods.
Information in Terms of SEPA Direct Debit
For participation in the direct debit procedure, you need a so-called Creditor ID.
This Creditor ID is getting transferred to the respective bank together with the direct debit mandate to confirm that the company is entitled to withdraw money from this account.
In Germany, you can get this ID directly at the Federal Bank:
In Switzerland and other countries of the SEPA area, the Creditor ID can be claimed here:
Stripe payments are made with the credit card acquirer Stripe. Therefore, the payout process works according to the stripe guidelines:
Stripe accepts payments only if the recipient agrees 100% on the transfer with the registered account holder. Therefore it is important to provide the correct payment details and company type when signing up:
  • Individual entrepreneurs are considered natural persons. Remittances are therefore always directed to the name of the registered "Company Representative" at Stripe. The bank account has to run on the personal name of this person and not on the company name.
  • Other company types such as Ltd. or Inc. are considered legal persons. Transfers will be sent to the registered company name. The bank account also has run in the company's name and may not be registered on a natural person.
Before you finally receive funds, Stripe will do another proof of identity. Once you verified your account, you can receive funds.


After your customer has successfully completed a purchase, the payment is being controlled by credit card acquirer Stripe - so-called security checks are carried out. This process usually takes at least seven days. Afterwards, the money will be refunded to your Stripe account and then transferred to your bank account (more information on this can be found in the section "Where does the money get paid?") In the settings you can choose at which intervals the money should be transferred to your bank account. You can also choose to pay automatically or manually in said settings:
You can call up this menu as follows: "Payouts > Settings > Payout schedule".
Where is the money being paid?
The money will be transferred from your Stripe account to the bank account you deposited in Stripe's settings. To add a bank account to Stripe, do the following:
Note: Please keep in mind that Stripe does not support various business models. If you work in such an industry, you will not be able to receive payments with Stripe.
