SEPA authorization data extraction

An image speaks more than a thousand words. Below is an example of the three steps our OCR engine takes to automatically extract data from SEPA authorization forms.

Uploading SEPA authorization forms to the API

The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a SEPA authorization to our API. This is typically done from a mobile app or a web application.

The document can be sent cropped or uncropped (with background). If the scan is sent uncropped, the Klippa API will automatically crop the document. The Klippa SEPA authorization scanning SDK can also be used in mobile apps.

Image to text using OCR

As soon as a picture or PDF is received, it is converted to a TXT file by our engine. In this step all the text from the SEPA authorization is extracted, but not yet structured.

Getting JSON output from the API

The Klippa Parser takes the TXT gained from the OCR in step 2 and converts it into structured JSON using machine learning. The JSON is then returned as output from the API. From here, the SEPA authorization can easily be processed into your database.

Whether you are processing SEPA authorizations for payment initiation, IBAN validation or other financial services, Klippa is here to help.

What is a SEPA Authorization?

The Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) is a pan-European network that allows you to send and receive payments between two cross-border bank accounts in the eurozone.

Before a company can collect a payment from a customer though, it needs a completed SEPA authorization form (also called a SEPA Direct Debit Mandate). 

The SEPA authorization form is the authorization given by a customer allowing a company to collect future payments from them at any time on their bank account (subject to advance notice).

Did you know that apart from SEPA authorizations, Klippa OCR can scan other types of financial documents, such as credit card statements, payslips, and bank statements? Contact us for more information.
