Offline payment methods, majorly bank & wire transfers (also called as Push payments) are used by SMBs and Enterprise businesses alike.
When customers pay offline, the transaction details are not sufficient to update the due invoices. This could happen because the payment amount changes due to foreign exchange rate conversion involved in multi currency payments or the reference details or payment instructions do not reach when you receive the payment
So there is a lot of manual effort involved in reconciling payments with due invoices.
With Stripe's ACH Credit Transfer feature, Chargebee updates payment due invoices (offline) accurately and removes the effort required to search and update due invoices.

Webhooks are indispensable to a smooth SEPA workflow; they notify Chargebee of any changes made to the transaction on Stripe so Chargebee can keep you updated on what's going on with your payment. They can be configured by pasting Chargebee's notification URL in your Stripe account at Your account > Account settings > Webhooks > Add endpoint > Account. Find a more detailed tutorial on configuring webhooks on our Stripe page.
In case you remove your Stripe account from Chargebee, this URL will no longer be valid. Adding Stripe to Chargebee again will generate a new URL that you will (once again) have to paste in your Stripe account.
