How do Direct Debit payment methods work?

Adyen offers the possibility to process transactions using direct debit payment methods. With Direct Debit, a shopper can authorize merchants to collect funds from their account.


This authorisation can vary on amount and date, customers are able to choose between one-time payments or monthly invoices. In order to do so, shoppers must confirm their credentials; usually their account information and personal details (eg. email address).


Once the payment is confirmed, customers will receive a mandate as a confirmation of the withdrawal of funds from their account. 


Some payment methods that allow Direct Debit offered by Adyen are ACH Direct Debit, BACS Direct Debit, and SEPA Direct Debit.
