Stripe Integration (Basic): Add SEPA Direct Debit Payment Method


For TaxDome Pro users only. Upgrade at any time.

TaxDome offers all the standard methods for clients to pay—credit/debit card, electronic check and even cash (if a client prefers paying in person). Here, we show you how to set up EPA Direct Debit, which allows clients to send Euros to their Stripe accounts from TaxDome.

Covered here:

SEPA Direct Debit

SEPA Direct Debit lets Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) clients pay using their bank account details. They must agree to the terms that authorize you to debit their accounts.

A SEPA Direct Debit payment is not immediate: It takes up to 14 business days to receive a notification about whether the payment went through; the average is five business days. The status remains In progress until it the payment posts.

Step 1: Add SEPA Direct Debit to Stripe

First, make sure your default currency on Stripe is Euros. If that is not already turned on by default, add SEPA Direct Debit from the Stripe Dashboard without changing your code.

Go to the Bank debits section and click Turn on to the far right of the SEPA Direct Debit option.

Follow the prompts and fill in what is needed. 

Step 2: Select Stripe as the Default Provider for Payments on TaxDome

After everything is set on Stripe, make sure of the following on your TaxDome portal:

  1. You’ve connected your Stripe account to TaxDome. For the instructions, go here.
  2. Your default payment provider is Stripe. Go to the Settings section, then to the Integrations tab. For more details, go here.

What Clients See When You Enable SEPA Direct Debit

Once you have enabled SEPA Direct Debit payment, your clients will see the SEPA Debit option in their payment window.

To make a payment, a client needs to enter their bank account details:

  1. IBAN
  2. Email
  3. Full name
  4. Country or region
  5. Address line 1

After a client clicks Pay, Stripe sends the information to the bank and waits for approval. The payment status remains In progress until it goes through. For more about statuses, go here.
