Bank redirects let customers pay online using their bank account. They drive more than half of online commerce in Germany, the Netherlands, and Malaysia. Bank redirects are often used by:
- Retailers that want to improve conversion and reduce fraud with consumers in Europe and Asia Pacific.
- Software or service businesses collecting one-time payments from other businesses.
Bank redirects may not be a good fit for your business if:
- You sell subscriptions. Some bank redirects don’t support recurring payments.
At checkout, the customer is redirected to their online banking portal, logs in with their bank credentials, approves the transaction, and then returns back to your site. Some bank redirects verify the user through SMS or other two-factor authentication for additional security.
We’ve created a single integration for all bank redirects that works across Stripe products. With Stripe Checkout, you can add any bank redirect by changing one line of code.
