Natixis Paiements launches System Mandate, an extensive SEPA mandate migration platform

Paris, France, July 4, 2013

Natixis Paiements is deploying the System Mandate solution to help financial institutions and companies migrate to SEPA Direct Debit.

SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) harmonizes the payment media and transfer processes, be they at the domestic or European level, in 32 European countries.

On February 1, 2014, all domestic transfers and debit operations will be discontinued to be replaced by the Single Europe Payments Area SEPA (SCT1 credit transfers and SDD2 direct debit). This migration applies to all economic agents, regardless of their line of business. Only SEPA Direct Debit operations will be authorized in France and in all the European area.



In order to help companies migrate to SEPA direct debit, Natixis Paiements offers System Mandate, an extensive and evolving platform for the management and processing of SEPA mandates that will replace the existing direct debit authorization system.
