Competitor Profile: ELV


Elektronisches Lastschriftverfahren (ELV) is an electronic direct debit system in Germany. Launched in the 1980s by a group of merchants, it accounted for 5.9% of the country’s non-cash transaction volume in 2018.

It 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 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, after which the amount is debited from the customer’s bank account.

ELV can also be used as a payment option by 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.
