When you have won the lot, you will be able to pay immediately on your 'My won lots' page. You will also receive an email containing a link to the payment page.
It's possible to pay by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express), bank transfer or by using one of the following online payment methods: iDEAL, Bancontact, Giropay, SOFORT, EPS, Multibanco, Przelewy24. Please be aware that payments using American Express are only possible for amounts over €1,000/$1,100/£900.
Only buyers who bid in euros will see the manual bank transfer option. It is really important that they use a European SEPA Credit Transfer for the payment. Stripe, our online payment processor, cannot process SWIFT transfers (also known as wire transfers) and these payments will bounce back to the bank account of the buyer. If a buyer claims that the SWIFT transfer did not bounce back, we need a letter from the bank that states this. Only then can Stripe check what happened to the payment.

What are the differences between SEPA (Single Europe Payments Area) and SWIFT (Society for Worldwide InterBank Financial Telecommunications)?:
- SWIFT enables money transfers internationally, while SEPA payments can only be made within the SEPA area.
- SWIFT transfers can be executed in various currencies and the SEPA initiative encompasses transfers in euro alone.
