Alternative Payment Solution: ELV


Elektronisches Lastschriftverfahren (ELV) is an electronic direct debit system in Germany. Launched in the 1980s by a group of merchants, in 2016 it accounted for 7.9% of all non-cash transaction volume in Germany.

This is a popular payment solution in Germany for both in-store and online payments, and is an alternative payment option for customers who do not like using their credit cards online to pay for products or services.

In-store ELV payments are made using debit cards that contain the necessary bank details. The system allows retailers to initiate an automated direct debit transaction at the point of sale (POS) terminal, and the amount is debited from the customers bank account.

ELV can also be used as a payment option for e-retailers. Payments are not authorized by issuing banks, and merchants have to bear the risk of defaults.

ELV payments are accepted by most banks in Germany as well as by a number of payment service providers (PSPs), including Worldpay, Skrill, Elavon, Ingenico, Adyen, Six Payment Services, eMerchantPay, and Wirecard.
