How it works

With giropay-ID, your customer uses online banking to confirm their account details and that they are 18 or over in seconds and with no follow-up processes. Your customer is forwarded from the online shop to their bank's online banking, where they perform verification with their existing online banking credentials (PIN/TAN).


The bank confirms the customer's appropriate age or account details to you on the basis of the existing account data. You receive this confirmation in real time, enabling you to send the goods or give your customer instant access to protected content. It couldn't be faster or easier.
