Our financial partners are in the process of deprecating Sofort. New businesses can’t accept Sofort payments. For more information read our support page.
Stripe automatically presents your customers payment method options by evaluating their currency, payment method restrictions, and other parameters. We recommend that you configure your payment methods from the Stripe Dashboard using the instructions in Accept a payment.
If you want to continue manually configuring the payment methods you present to your customers with Checkout, use this guide (for example, to accept payments in Subscription mode). Otherwise, migrate to the dashboard.
SOFORT is a delayed notification payment method, which means that funds are not immediately available after payment. A payment typically takes 2 to 14 business days to arrive in your account.
Customers pay with SOFORT by redirecting away from the Checkout Session to their bank, sending you payment, and then returning to Checkout. They are then redirected back to your site.
