I started paying with the digital Girocard via giropay

We have already reported that payment with a digital girocard is being fine-tuned via giropay. The goal here is to create competition with PayPal. A start in the second half was planned, the time has come. Paydirekt, old giropay and Kwitt services merge and merge into a new version of giropay. In addition to discount campaigns, buyer protection is also offered, which for many has probably been an argument in favor of PayPal so far.

Sparkasse customers are already benefiting from the new online payment function. The Sparkassen-Card (girocard) can now be used online via giropay via the mobile payment app, i.e. currently only via an Android device. This is where the digital Girocard comes in.

While the digital transfer card via “mobile payment” could previously only be displayed offline via NFC, this will now also be possible online. It is necessary that the shop already uses the “new” giropay (recognizable by the new logo). Some dealers, like DM, have already changed. Other brands, such as MediaMarkt, should follow suit in the coming days.
