Description

You are looking for a solution with which you can make regular payments without great effort? SEPA.net handles your payments online using the direct debit procedure. Clients pay at SEPA.net with their bank account.
This does also work for recurring payments like for hosting products. The client just need to activate once the sepa gateway and all upcoming invoices will be charged from the provider side - without assistence of the client.
That increases the payment rate dramatically because there is no need for interaction from the client to get his invoice payed.

  • Automatically charge open invoices from clients bank account or process invoices manually via module admin page
  • Manually review new SEPA sign-ups to prevent fraud or charge them automatically
  • Automatically switch default gateway of client and his products to SEPA
  • Force SEPA Gateway for new orders (if the client has previously activated SEPA)
  • API Testmode
  • Notification if payment fails
  • Multilanguage (english and german is included)
  • WHMCS v6 and v7 support
  • PHP 5 and PHP 7 support
