How do I pay on SCNX with a standing bank order (/ reoccurring bank transfer)?

  3. Make sure all details match the details shown in your dashboard and confirm your reoccurring wire transfer with your bank.
  4. Enjoy your SCNX Subscription 🚀

How does SCNX know that I wired a bill?

When paying with wire transfer, you'll be assigned a custom IBAN on a virtual bank account. Every payment that arrives at that account will be credited towards your bills - the transaction reference is not required (but recommended for one-time purchases), as we can easily assign a payment to your account based on the IBAN the money was received on.

Wired to much money on accident? Don't worry: You money will be automatically used for future payments - if you do not use it within 90 days, our payment provider will return the money back to the bank account that the transfer originated from (if that's not possible, Stripe will reach out and ask for bank details). You can also reach out to our staff to get the money back sooner (please note that this is only possible when you have unreconciled bank transfer balance).

My card was declined, but all my data is valid

Here are a few possible reasons why this is happening:

  • Your card was issued in Russia / by a Russian bank
  • Your card was issued in a nation affected by international sanctions / by a bank in such nation
  • Your card has been involved in fraud previously
  • The data your entered is invalid
  • Our payment provider deemed your transaction as high-risk and has denied it
  • Your card has been reported as stolen
  • You card could not be verified using 3DS

Please contact our staff if you think none of these reasons apply.
