SEPA charset support for Payment initiation

As not all SEPA participants support the full character set used in all SEPA countries, for Beneficiary name (creditorName) from 2021-11-02 we will require to provide only Latin characters. SEPA scheme participants must be able to support the Latin character set commonly used in international communication, which are as follows:
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
/ - ? : ( ) . , ' +
Space
This change affects all payments - made via OB-PS,PSD2-PIS APIs and Online Banking Portal. If creditorName will contain characters outside of SEPA supported list, Payment Initiation will fail with
  • error code: 02001005
  • error message: Message Not allowed characters entered in the creditorName

We are updating Initiate Payment API from Merchant API set

As Merchant Account (IBAN) is part of your Merchant Profile configuration, we have reduced redundant data entry by removing payment.creditorAccount parameter from Initiate Payment API.

You will not have to specify bank account in API request, we will take this parameter straight from you Merchant Profile configuration.
