SEPA direct debit will not start in Germany (or Europe) before November 2009. As soon as the german banks support SEPA direct debit we consider switching to SEPA. This will enhance the availableness of our payment processor to all european countries which is a nice thing of course.
Currently we only support German ELV (Elektronisches Lastschriftverfahren) using DTA files. ELV is supported up to 2012.
