The payment method SOFORT is offered in cooperation with our partner Klarna (formerly Sofort GmbH). SOFORT is available in 13 markets; Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, The Netherlands, United Kingdom. After completing the order, your customer will be asked to log into his online banking to confirm the transfer to you directly. You will receive the confirmation immediately and can ship the goods right away.
Please note that in addition to a payever account (created free of cost) you also need a Klarna account. In your payever account please go to Checkout App > Payment Options > + Add > SOFORT Banking and click on the Connect button. This will redirect you to the Klarna's online registration form where you can either log in or create a new account.
As opposed to what is mentioned here, we do not charge 0.25€ + 0.9% for the regular registration of Sofortüberweisung, but only 0.25€ + 0.8%. For digital products and adult content there are corresponding fees of 2% + 0.15€ and 5% + 0.15€.
- Who covers fees? Either the merchant or the customer pays - the customer will automatically see the fees in the checkout when using our plugins.
- Do redirect to the shop after success or failure. If activated, your customer will be redirected to your order confirmation page after the payment has been completed.
How to activate SOFORT in your payever account?
You can activate or deactivate the payment method in your payever account at any time. If you deactivate the payment methods by clicking the toggle switch, they will automatically disappear from your shop without you having to configure this in your shops backend (of course, this also works the other way around - when activating a payment method). Just go to Checkout > Payment options and switch on SOFORT.
