Talking about what merchant assets you need to have on your site in order to achieve a brand-friendly integration, we should remind ourselves of what the payment selector is. The payment selector could be seen as a container for the so-called brand elements. In this case, the brand elements are Sofort’s payment badge and Sofort’s payment descriptor. Below you will find correct namings for the payment descriptor based on your country and information on how to use the payment badge.

Detailed Payment Method Description

If your checkout allows for a read more box to explain the Sofort payment method, the following text should be used:
