SEPA Direct Debit Drop-in integration

Add SEPA Direct Debit to an existing Drop-in integration.

Our Android Drop-in renders SEPA Direct Debit in your payment form, where shoppers provide their account holder name and IBAN, and then review and confirm the payment.

Before you begin

This page explains how to add SEPA Direct Debit to your existing Android Drop-in integration. The Android Drop-in integration works the same way for all payment methods. If you haven't done this integration yet, refer to our Drop-in integration guide.

Before starting your SEPA Direct Debit integration:

  1. Make sure you have set up your back end implementation.
  2. Contact our Support Team, and ask them to add SEPA Direct Debit to your account.

Show SEPA Direct Debit in your payment form

Drop-in uses the countryCode and the amount.currency from your /paymentMethods request to show the available payment methods to your shopper.

To show SEPA Direct Debit in your payment form, you need to specify in your /paymentMethods request:

Make a payment

When the shopper proceeds to pay, Drop-in returns the paymentComponentData.paymentMethod.

  1. Pass the paymentComponentData.paymentMethod to your server.

  2. From your server, make a /payments request, specifying:
    • paymentMethod: The paymentComponentData.paymentMethod from your client app.
curl \
-H "x-API-key: YOUR_X-API-KEY" \
-H "content-type: application/json" \

The /payments response contains:

  • resultCode: Received.
  • pspReference: Adyen's unique reference number for the payment.
/payments response
    "pspReference": "881572960484022G",
    "resultCode": "Received",
    "merchantReference": "YOUR_ORDER_NUMBER"

Check the payment result

Drop-in provides the actionComponentData in your shopper's app.

  1. Pass the actionComponentData.details to your server.

  2. From your server, make a /payments/details request containing the actionComponentData.details to check the payment result.

Present the payment result

Use the resultCode that you received in the /payments response to present the payment result to your shopper.

The resultCode values you can receive for SEPA Direct Debit are:

resultCode Description Action to take
Received The payment was successfully received. You will receive a AUTHORISATION notification when the status of the payment has been updated. If successful, you will receive the funds in 2 days.
Authorised The payment was successfully completed. Inform the shopper that the payment was successful.

Recurring payments

If you have a recurring or subscription business model we recommend tokenizing the shopper's payment details. When you create a shopper token from a SEPA payment, we store their payment details with the token. The token can be used to make recurring payments for the shopper.

You can create a shopper token and then make subsequent recurring payments with the token using the /payments endpoint.

We strongly recommend that you request explicit permission from the shopper if you intend to make recurring SEPA payments. Being transparent about the payment schedule and the amount they will be charged will reduce the risk of chargebacks.

Create shopper token

Tokenize the shopper's payment details when you make the initial SEPA payment.

  1. When you call /payments to make a payment, additionally include:
    • shopperReference: Your unique ID for this shopper.
    • storePaymentMethodtrue
  2. When you receive the response (or the notification) that the payment was authorised, note the recurringDetailReference or the storedPaymentMethodId. This is the token you will need to make recurring payments for this shopper.

Make recurring payment

For each recurring payment for this shopper, make a SEPA payment with a /payments call, and additionally include:

  • recurringDetailReference or storedPaymentMethodId for API v49 and above. This is the recurringDetailReference returned in the response when you created the token. This holds the token you received back in the initial payment.
  • shopperReference: The shopper ID you provided when created the shopper token.
  • shopperInteractionContAuth.
   "reference":"Your Reference Here",

If the payment was successfully received the response will contain a Received resultCode and a pspReference, which is our unique identifier for this transaction. You can track whether the payment was successful using notifications.


If a shopper for some reason wants the funds from a payment returned, they can ask their bank for a refund. This is referred to as a chargeback.
For SEPA, the chargeback process gives significant consumer rights to the shopper. They have:

  • Eight weeks to dispute a SEPA payment without providing a reason.
  • Thirteen months to dispute an unauthorised or incorrect SEPA payment when they provide evidence to their bank.
You cannot defend against SEPA chargebacks. These will always result in the shopper receiving a refund.

A SEPA chargeback notification can indicate that:

  • The shopper disputed the charge.
  • There were insufficient funds in the shopper's bank account.

A chargeback notification contains:

  • pspReference: Adyen's unique reference associated with the payment request.
  • eventCode: CHARGEBACK.
  • reason: Reason for the chargeback.
  • success: true.

Here is an example of a notification that indicates a SEPA chargeback because there were insufficient funds in the shopper's bank account.


        "reason":"Insufficient funds",

For more information on the chargeback process, refer to Dispute management.
