Introducing our new payment methods for VPS servers
We are pleased to announce that we have recently added six new payment methods to our site, all developed across Europe. These payment methods include Sofort, Giropay, MyBank, eps, Przelewy24, and Bancontact. Here we provide information on each one to help our customers decide which is best suited to their individual needs.
This is a relatively new payment method that is based on bank transfer as a principle and is now available in eight countries across Europe. These countries include Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Italy, Spain, Belgium, and The Netherlands. Compared to a traditional bank transfer, details such as the beneficiary and amount are already filled out, so you are only left to verify the actual payment before it goes ahead. As a customer, you’ve got almost nothing to think about!
Sofort banking is completely safe and secure, as your sensitive details do not need to be saved, and are never visible to any third parties, including us. By using Sofort, feel reassured that your details have not been stored anywhere, and you’ll also save time which would otherwise be wasted entering lengthy card numbers. Because of this, one of the main advantages of this method of bank transfer is the elimination of human error, making it simple and accurate.
There are four main steps for you as a customer to undertake:
1. Selecting their country and bank
2. Logging in with your online banking details
3. Confirming the transfer with a card or pin reader
4. Receiving confirmation that the transfer has taken place
