Accept BECS Direct Debit payments in Australia using Stripe

What is BECS Direct Debit?

BECS Direct Debit is an automated payment method allowing merchants to take payment from buyer bank accounts in Australia and has two core features, around which most of the system revolves:

It offers pull-based payments: Upon successful completion of Direct Debit request, the vendor can then initiate Direct Debit payments without any further action needed from the buyer.

Direct Debit payments are bank-to-bank transactions. No card networks are involved. As a substitute, the banks communicate directly through the Bulk Electronic Clearing System (BECS).

A direct debit is an automatic transfer of money between two accounts. Direct debit can be used to pay regular bills such as your monthly phone bill or gym membership. If you have an automatic payment set up, you won’t need to remember to pay your bill, and you won’t be charged late fees.
