Online payments are part of everyday business for companies.

Select either the online corporate banking portal in the Internet or special banking software - you choose the most appropriate option for your needs.
Commerzbank’s corporate banking portal is a convenient way to manage the accounts you hold worldwide at Commerzbank, as well as your accounts held with third-party banks in Germany and abroad. You can switch between applications without having to log on and off again: all the applications run from a single sign-on.
Your direct line to banks worldwide
Any company requiring a direct line to banks throughout the world can process its payment transactions with the most diverse of banks using the SWIFT network. Founded over 30 years ago in Belgium as a cooperative between banks with international operations as a way of providing a secure transfer process for cross-border payment transactions, the SWIFT network today covers more than 200 countries and offers far more than just payment data transfer. The company made a name for itself in the credit economy as a standardiser and financial data transfer expert.
Commerzbank can support you in using the global SWIFT network to process your payments. If and how a connection is advisable in any given case depends primarily on the communication channels your company currently has access to, the requirements you have for payment transactions and whether SWIFT access adds value to your business from a cost/benefit perspective. Commerzbank specialists support you in reaching this decision and, should you decide to take this route, help you with the subsequent implementation of corporate access to SWIFT.
With the SWIFT Shared Connection Service, Commerzbank offers you a simple and costeffective physical connection into the SWIFT network. You do not need your own SWIFT infrastructure. Instead, you can use our third-party-friendly “White Labelling” outsourcing solution.
