Create SEPA DD Transaction

The Create SEPA DD Transaction request performs a transaction (purchase) using the SEPA Direct Debit payment method. Note that the shopper's account is not immediately debited - it takes about 5 to 6 business days for the shopper's bank to approve the charge and for their account to be debited.

For more information, see the SEPA Direct Debit guide.

Prerequisite: Have SEPA enabled for your account
