Special characters in SEPA reference

A merchant I tried to send money to via SEPA requires the period (.) character in the reference, however, I’m told the reference is invalid if it try to include it.

I can see certain special characters being valid in a reference in some instances, could this restriction be lifted or is it a limitation imposed by Transferwise?

Have you tried just sending it by Transferwise directly?

I never, I decided to give up in the end with the transaction.
To be honest, I’ll probably never need to do a SEPA again, but just wanted to bring the issue to light.
