Offer your customers a way to make payments from other banks
We have upgraded our e-payment service and added a new feature that allows you to offer your customers a way to make payments from their accounts with other banks. This features redirects the customer to their online bank where the customer can log in and follow their bank’s usual process of confirming a payment. After the customer has confirmed the payment, they will return to your online store as before.
Discover an easier way to manage e-payments
Nordea’s upgraded e-payment service offers you a simpler way to manage e-payments (online banking payments). What you will need:
- One agreement with Nordea and an account with Nordea to which the payments are credited.
- One integration – Nordea’s e-payment API. We will take care of the connections to the other banks in the background.
- Supported banks are: Ålandsbanken, Danske Bank, Handelsbanken, Oma Säästöpankki, Osuuspankki, POP Pankki, Säästöpankki and S-Pankki.
How will the upgrade affect you as the merchant
In order to use the new feature that enables your customers to make payments from their accounts with other Finnish banks, your company must update Nordea’s e-payment API to version v0005 and direct the online banking payments from other banks (“payment buttons”) to Nordea’s e-payment API. You also need to accept the updated terms and conditions of the e-payment service.
Payments from other banks will arrive in your company’s account in Nordea on the next banking day and be shown as regular SEPA payments. E-payments made by Nordea customers will arrive in your account immediately and be shown as e-payments.
Activating the new feature may require actions, i.e. updating Nordea’s e-payment API. If you have a technical intermediary or an integration partner, they will also have to update the API. Check the timetable for the API update and contact your technical intermediary or integration partner.
You can find the updated service and API descriptions under Service descriptions and the updated terms and conditions under Terms and conditions.
