Question 59:

What is EBICS?


EBICS is a standard for the transfer of payment data over the Internet. EBICS is supported by all banks in Germany and France, as well as certain banks in other countries.

To use EBICS, you need a bank access and a client program, e. g. BL Banking. Regarding the bank access please contact your bank. They will send you the access data that you enter in the client program. This then creates an initialization letter, which you send to the bank as a confirmation.

You can find a general introduction into EBICS in chapter General - EBICS. The quick guide Installation describes the installation of BL Banking.
