– The Contractual Partner is to design the order process and its internet presence in such a way that the Customer is unmistakably on the online banking page of his/her bank when placing the Payment Method transfer, and that the Customer may recognize this via the display of the bank’s URL in the address line of the browser and review of the security certificate. In particular, the Contractual Partner may not use any iframes when including the Payment Method in the payment process. The parties understand the term “iframe” to designate a technology by means of which internet contents are integrated into the internet service of the Contractual Partner while it is not recognizable for the user of the internet service that they are not own contents of the Contractual Partner.
– With the Payment Method system, PPRO merely creates the possibility for the Contractual Partner that Customers may initiate an online wire transfer through the Customer’s bank within the Contractual Partner‘s system or its distributors’ system. Further, the entry confirmation of the bank is forwarded on to the Contractual Partner so that it can be sure that a pertinent entry with successful PIN and TAN transmission took place. The execution of the wire transfer by the bank and the possibility of the Customer to still stop and/or revoke the wire transfer are solely subject to the respective applicable general terms and conditions of the respective bank on which PPRO has no influence. The parties are aware that these general terms and conditions of the banks may be subject to change in the future, as well.
– The Contractual Partner is aware that currently, transactions with the Payment Method may be executed by most standard banks in the countries listed in the Price List, respectively. PPRO reserves the right to offer the Payment Method in other countries, as well. PPRO does not guarantee, however, that a Customer will be able to make a wire transfer from every bank account in one of the aforementioned countries or any other country. Further, PPRO does not guarantee that transactions which can currently be made with the Payment Method via individual banks or countries will continue to remain possible in the future.

– The guarantee event occurs if the guaranteed payment amount is not credited to the account of the Contractual Partner within five (5) banking days and if the payment claim is not older than six (6) weeks.

Such a direct debiting mandate may be obtained from a Customer in written or electronic form. The Contractual Partner undertakes to only submit debits for collection if it has been provided with the appropriate direct debiting mandate from the Payer.
– PPRO does not check the legitimacy of incoming Direct Debit payments and any transactions disputed by the Payer must be returned to the Payer as a Chargeback. The Contractual Partner acknowledges that the Direct Debit Payment Method contains an inherent risk of Customer Chargebacks and in order to mitigate against such a risk, PPRO is entitled to request a Holdback from the Contractual Partner. Furthermore, unless otherwise agreed with the Contractual Partner, settlement of Direct Debit funds shall be once per week deferred by 10 days.
– In the scope of the direct debiting mandate, PPRO may at any time request from the Contractual Partner submission of the Payers’ written or electronic Direct Debit mandates.

– Unless agreed otherwise, the Contractual Partner may not submit Direct Debits exceeding a maximum of EUR 250,000.00 within a period of thirty days.

– Should the Contractual Partner breach any of the provisions within this clause or otherwise within these Terms and Conditions, or Chargeback ratios are above acceptable industry standards, PPRO may refuse to execute the submitted direct debits, reasonably adjust any Holdbacks and/or withhold remittance of funds. Further compensation claims by PPRO for damages remain unaffected.

*Notice: Despite many millions of transactions, the service sofortbanking has not led to any damage case to the detriment of an end user who entered his/her PIN and TAN into the systems of Payment Network AG. As a precaution, we would still like to point out that there are banks and savings banks (Sparkassen) in Germany which are of the opinion that the use of sofortbanking may lead to a transfer of liability in case of abuse, if any, due to the use of PIN and TAN outside of the proprietary online banking systems. This may mean that the bank may refuse to indemnify the end customer from any damage in case of abuse and that the end customer may have to bear the damage. There has not been one single case of fraud vis-à-vis an end customer so far. Despite this, however, Payment Network AG holds an insurance policy as a precaution; such insurance policy insures Payment Network AG against liability cases up to an amount of EUR 5,000 per damage case in case of PIN or TAN abuse (to the detriment of the end customer who enters its PIN and TAN into the systems of Payment Network AG). This is intended to assure you as end customer that in the unlikely case of damage, there is reinsurance for liability claims against Payment Network AG, if any. The policy holder of the insurance policy is Payment Network AG.

SEPA Direct Debit (SDD) allows the Contractual Partner to collect funds from a Customer’s bank account within the Single Euro Payments Area.
– SEPA Direct Debit is facilitated by means of a direct debiting mandate through which a Customer (the “Payer”) authorises the Contractual Partner (the “Payee”) to debit his or her account for a fixed amount for any future invoice or for recurring payments. Such a direct debiting mandate may be obtained from a Customer in written or electronic form. – PPRO offers – on an optional basis – the administration of one time electronic direct debiting mandates for the Contractual Partner (to be used for E-Commerce Merchants).
– In case the Contractual Partner chooses to administrate direct debiting mandates on its own, the Contractual Partner undertakes to only submit debits for collection if it has been provided with the appropriate direct debiting mandate from the Payer. Should a Direct Debit be reversed by the Contractual Partner or the Payer, or should debit of the claim fail due to reasons attributable to the Contractual Partner – in particular due to insufficient credit or incorrect account information in its Customer menu – the Contractual Partner is fully and unconditionally liable to pay the outstanding amount, as well as any applicable reverse fees, any applicable third party Fees of the bank holding the account and any handling Fees, no later than within 7 banking days of notice from PPRO.
– Should the Contractual partner choose the PPRO direct debiting mandate administration, PPRO will administrate the direct debiting mandates in compliance with the rules and regulations of the applicable EU Regulation number 260/2012 of 14.03.2012 as follows:

According to EU Regulation No. 260/2012 which governs SEPA Direct Debiting there is no written rule that the direct debiting mandate has to be in written form. Therefore the validity of the SEPA Direct Debiting electronic mandate is ruled by the terms and conditions of the collecting banks. PPRO´s collecting bank does not set the requirement of a written direct debiting mandate.
The Contractual Partner is responsible for delivering the correct data where it is in his possession. PPRO will store the mandates for at least 14 months from the date of issuance. PPRO will send a Pre-Notification E-Mail to the Payer (the end customer of the Contractual Partner) comprised of the following information:
a) Date of debiting of the Payer´s account b) Amount that will be debited c) Mandate ID (reference number) and d) Creditor ID (PPRO/Merchant)
The Customer will receive an E-Mail with a link from PPRO so that he can access his mandate anytime via this link.
– PPRO does not check the legitimacy of incoming SEPA Direct Debit payments and any transactions disputed by the Payer must be returned to the Payer as a Chargeback. The Contractual Partner acknowledges that the Direct Debit Payment Method contains an inherent risk of Customer Chargebacks and in order to mitigate against such a risk, PPRO is entitled to request a Holdback from the Contractual Partner. Furthermore, unless otherwise agreed with the Contractual Partner, settlement of Direct Debit funds shall be once per week deferred by 10 days. In case of a Charge Back the Contractual Partner is not permitted to hand in the same SEPA Direct Debit again.
– Should the Contractual Partner choose to administrate the SEPA direct debiting mandates on its own, PPRO may at any time request and obtain from the Contractual Partner submission of the Payers’ written or electronic Direct Debit mandates. PPRO may also at any time request and obtain evidence of compliance of the Contractual Partner with the preceding provisions and the Contractual Partner shall provide all such information to PPRO without delay.
– Unless agreed otherwise, the Contractual Partner may not submit Direct Debits exceeding a maximum of EUR 500,000.00 within a period of thirty days.
– Should the Contractual Partner breach any of the provisions within this clause or otherwise within these Terms and Conditions, or Chargeback ratios are above acceptable industry standards, PPRO may refuse to execute the submitted direct debits, reasonably adjust any Holdbacks and/or withhold remittance of funds. Furthermore PPRO shall be entitled to an extraordinary termination of the contract in this case. Further compensation claims of PPRO shall remain unaffected.

The Contractual Parties acknowledge that the general terms and conditions of end-Customer banks with respect to the use of InstantTransfer may change at any time in the future. For these reasons InstantTransfer is not a guaranteed Payment Method and PPRO shall not be held liable for the execution of recalled InstantTransfer payment transactions.
– The contractual partner is aware that currently, online bank transfers can be carried out by most major banks in Germany. However PPRO does not in any way guarantee that an end-Customer will be able to make an online bank transfer from every bank account in Germany using InstantTransfer. Furthermore, PPRO does not guarantee that transactions which may currently be made with InstantTransfer via individual banks will continue to remain possible in the future.
– The transfer of sensitive end-Customer data is via a secure and encrypted SSL connection and is subject to the very high data security standard of PCI DSS 2.0.
Credit cards hold a top position as a means of payment in e-commerce. The reasons for this are a high level of international acceptance and a high degree of security.
