According to MultiSafepay, EPS can be compared with Dutch payment method iDeal and it works almost the same as German payment method Giropay, both offered by MultiSafepay. “We are constantly working on expanding and improving our service. Adding the payment method EPS is a good example of this and it ensures that our merchants can serve more customers in Europe”, product manager Dirk Meij said.
