In e-government, over 1,500 cities, communities and authorities rely on the giropay process.
Giropay was founded in 2005 by Postbank, the savings bank finance group (Star Finanz GmbH) and the cooperative finance group (Fiducia & GAD IT AG). Based on online banking, the payment method has become firmly established in the German e-commerce and e-government market. Well-known companies such as Lufthansa, CTS Eventim or Deutsche Post/ DHL offer payment using the giropay method.
Two digital payment methods used by German banks, giropay and paydirekt, are combined under one brand: giropay. In addition to a new look, the merger also brings a significantly increased reach and thus ensures more potential users.
Known and trusted: Everyone in Germany knows and uses the transfer. With giropay you can integrate a transfer process into your online shop with a high reach and customer acceptance.
