Dear fellow Odooers, 

being asked by a customer and coming across FinTech and banking again i
stumbled on the EBICS standard and tried to make sense of the current
implementation status in Europe / Germany and the overall

As i have read, French as well as Swiss banks (among the Germans) are
following this bank integration standard and slowley but constantly
replace their older HBCI / FinTS interfaces in favor of EBICS.

However, at least for Germany i found the bank infrastructure quite
underdeveloped. For instance only German DZ-Bank seems to officially
offer a sandbox to test the integration and only to their customers. 

I therefore wonder if there is any partner out there (maybe the folks
at Akretion and Noviat know) that is using the integration with a
German bank (and if so against which test environment has it been

I saw that Zürcher Kantonalbank of Switzerland has a test environment
but obviously doesn't follow the whole standard, so that is not really
useful for the standard case (which should hopefully be applied in

As far as i can see the implementation can for now hand in SEPA
mandates to banks, but does it also receive a list of payments for SEPA
as well as NON-SEPA payments from the bank to be reconciled with open
invoices or is that still something that needs to be done manually
(with flat files)?

Thanks for any repsonse in that regards
