Methods of payment

We offer the following payment modalities.

What is giropay?

Giropay is an online payment method which is offered by more than 1,500 banks. Based on the online banking with PIN and TAN a simple, fast and secure payment via online bank transfer is possible – directly from the IDS Direct Webstore.

This guarantees that sensitive data (PIN / TAN) will be transferred only between you and your bank. No third party has insight into personal account and sales information.

The seller receives a payment guarantee from the bank directly after successful payment and thus can send the products immediately and without any risk.


How can I pay by credit card?

When paying online by credit card via VISA and MasterCard, you’ll have to enter your credit card number, the credit card expiry date and the three-digit security code.

Your security code provides additional safety when paying online and usually consists of the three last digits of the number printed on the reverse side of the credit card. The security code can be found at different positions, depending on the credit card company, but usually it is printed on the signature field.

All credit card transactions are executed immediately. This means: when paying by credit card, the total amount invoiced will be charged upon conclusion of the order, regardless of the product availability at the time of your order. The data of your credit card won’t be stored by IDS.

When am I allowed to pay by invoice?

Existing customers have the option to pay upon fulfillment of certain conditions, on account.

These requirements include, for example, a reliable payment record and credit quality.

IDS reserves the right to exclude certain types of payments in individual cases.

What should I consider for prepayment?

If you select prepayment, please observe the payment information on the confirmation. You receive the confirmation immediately vie e-mail after placing the order. Please ensure to state the order number as the reason for payment. We need this information to assign your payment.

After we received your payment we will send an order confirmation in which we also inform you
about the exact delivery date (in general ca. 2 weeks after receipt of payment).

Note: Depending on your bank, it could take between 2-4 working days until we receive your
