Sofort support?


#1

Hi,

I use DeGiro to trade shares. They have two ways to fund portfolios, using instant Sofort transfers or with traditional BACS transfers. Traditional transfers take about 3-4 days because they process them manually.

Any chance you might support sofort transfers anytime in the near future?

Cheers
J.

what’s the benefit of sofort over sepa instant credit?

looking forward to having EUR accounts with Starling

some merchants in Europe use sofort as a means of payment that bypasses cards, I think it’s quite popular in Germany.

I also have suggested SOFORT before

One plus for merchants is they have confirmation of the money transfer going thru, but with traditional SCT and SCTinst they need to wait for their bank statement or manually log in to their internet banking

I will never use SOFORT! This isn’t secure. You have to provide your bank credentials which is the worst thing you can do. Than they (pretending it was you) create the transfer. Even worst, later on they login again to see if it was sent and not cancelled/returned. Horrible.
