Banking redirects, also referred to as e-banking or bank transfers, provide learners with a convenient and secure method of payment by redirecting them to their bank's website to complete the transaction.
- Regulatory Compliance
Complies with regulations related to payment processing, such as PSD2 in Europe, which requires strong customer authentication for online payments.
- Customer Convenience
Provides a convenient payment option for your learners to make payments directly from their bank accounts without the need for a credit card or other payment method. TCommerce offers multiple, convenient, frequently used payment options across different regions, helping you provide your audience with more convenient ways to pay.
- Enhanced Security
By processing payments through an online banking portal, bank redirects can offer a secure payment option that helps reduce the risk of fraudulent activity.
How Bank Redirects Work
When a learner chooses the bank redirect option during checkout, they are redirected to their bank's website where they can log in and complete the payment using their online banking credentials. This process is secure and allows the learner to make a payment without leaving your website.
You will be able to see which provider a learner used to purchase your product through the Orders Table or Transactions Table. When a learner makes a purchase using a bank redirect, you will receive the full transaction amount in your bank account via Thinkific Payments, just like credit card transactions.
