Payset Now Offers IBANs in Denmark, Luxembourg and Germany

By signing up with Payset, you’ll be able to obtain an IBAN in three new European countries and transact with their local currencies.

Payset is expanding to new markets and is now able to provide IBANs for Denmark, Luxembourg, and Germany in addition to the US and UK, allowing you to open a local IBAN account and make quick, affordable local payments in five key global regions!

This is a huge step for Payset as we and our partner banks move ever closer to being the fastest and most versatile payment solution for your business!

By signing up for a Payset account, you’ll be able to transact with the local currencies of each of these five countries using fast, affordable local payment networks. You’ll also be able to use 34 other currencies within various other supported locations — all from a single, easy-to-use interface.

Create local IBANs with Payset 

If you’ve opened a traditional payment account, you’ll know that doing so requires you to provide specific information and meet certain requirements. And because traditional financial services often require you to attend a branch in person, it’s difficult to complete this process online. 

By contrast, electronic money institutions (EMIs) such as Payset provide a simple way to create a multi-currency IBAN remotely. Payset now offers local IBANS in five regions:

  • Denmark (DK) - Send and receive local DKK payments in Denmark as well as international payments in 24 other currencies.
  • Luxembourg (LU) - Take advantage of the many benefits of a multi-currency account in a well-known financial hub with our IBANs based in Luxembourg. 
  • Germany (DE) - Payset can now instantly issue you a local German account to make faster, more affordable payments in Germany.
  • United Kingdom (GB) -  Send and receive international payments as well as local payments in the UK (via the FasterPayments, BACS, and CHAPS networks)
  • United States (US) - Get a local account in the US to send and receive instant, cheap USD payments like a US resident.

Payset accounts also allow you to transact using 34 currencies using international payment networks, allowing you to send money to over 180 other countries.

Payset’s services carry competitive rates in all areas – from fees and transaction times to conversion rates and terms of service. See our pricing page for more information and custom quotes.

How it works

Payset allows you to send and receive money, make deposits and withdrawals, and spend funds at stores and online merchants. Once you sign up for an account and create an IBAN, you can:

  • Receive, spend, send, or store up to 34 international currencies
  • Exchange between 38 currencies instantly
  • Make zero-fee transactions with other Payset users
  • Access multiple payment networks such as SWIFT, SEPA, CHAPS, and FPS
  • Make transactions with no maximum limit
  • Make free, instant transaction between Payset account holders

Adding money to your Payset account is simple. You can:

  • Provide your account information to any individual, employer, or company that intends to send you money
  • Deposit money in your account by sending it from an external account that you own, or
  • Request funds from other Payset users

Once you’ve built an account balance, you can send outgoing transactions and make payments.

Cross borders using Payset’s services

Payset is useful whether you are transacting locally or internationally. Most importantly, you do not need to reside in a country in order to make use of its local currency or IBAN numbers.

As such, Payset’s services are highly useful for users who transact around the world. If you travel often, plan to move to another country, or operate a company that does business internationally, you stand to gain the most from using Payset’s global payment services.

Payset accounts can be used by individuals and businesses alike. 

Why local IBANs are useful

Local IBANs are useful because they allow you to make full use of a country’s native currency and – depending on the country – their major payment networks without opening a traditional bank account in the region.

With a virtual IBAN account, you may be able to make payments that are otherwise only accepted from residents of the country. Plus, if you purchase a foreign currency, you might be able to save on costs depending on the state of the forex market and current conversion fees.

In other words, IBANs provide direct access to a country’s financial system, but without the need for you to live in or visit the country in person.
