Edgars Lasmanis, Walletto Owner: A Guide to SEPA Payments
The adage ‘Money Never Sleeps’ has never been more pertinent, with money transmitted across international borders every moment of the day and night. The COVID-19 pandemic fuelled unprecedented growth in the digital payment ecosystem as consumers sought faster, more convenient means of completing transactions.
Today, consumers enjoy access to seamless payment technologies, although some businesses are facing challenges in terms of keeping up, particularly when it comes to international payments.
International payments are an essential part of international trade that demand considerable investment in innovative solutions. Technological advancements, such as SWIFT, Target2 and SEPA, mean that today’s international payment systems are more advanced than ever, processing record volumes of e-commerce and cross-border payments.
SEPA, or the ‘Single Euro Payments Area’, enables consumers to make cashless euro payments via direct debit or credit transfer to anywhere in the EU, as well as several non-EU countries. A fast, safe and efficient payment method, SEPA has contributed considerably to the competitiveness and efficiency of the European economy by harmonising standards in all participating countries and eliminating differences between cross-border and national payments.
Regulated by the European Commission (EC), SEPA was created by the European banking and payments industry with the backing of the EC, Eurosystem, national governments and other public authorities. SEPA has not only harmonised the way cashless euro payments are transacted but also completed the introduction of the euro as a single currency throughout Europe.
