Of course, you could now say that the entrepreneur himself can also collect a direct debit from the customer. So what is Better Payment for? The advantage is: the administrative effort no longer lies with you as an entrepreneur. In order to be allowed to collect an invoice from a customer by direct debit, you must have a SEPA mandate in advance. The customer must agree that you may debit his account and debit the money accordingly.
When paying via Better Payment, your customer actively selects the payment method and thus agrees to the terms and conditions and the direct debit authorization by Better Payment. So you no longer wait for days or until the granted payment term is reached for the amount to arrive in your bank account. Your customer has the possibility to pay the invoice immediately after receiving it. With a payment method of his choice.
Win-win for both sides!
