FAQ

What is IBAN?

Show more Show less

IBAN, or International Bank Account Number, is a unique code that serves as an address from and to which a payment is sent. An IBAN code is composed of a bank identifier, a country code, and a bank account number, which makes it sufficient to execute most payments, especially SEPA Credit Transfers.

Is IBAN the same as SWIFT?

Show more Show less

While the IBAN is used to make EU-wide SEPA transfers in euros, the SWIFT code is used to make payments on the SWIFT cross-border wire transfer network. Unlike SEPA, SWIFT transfers are not free and take up to a few working days. At the same time, the SWIFT network supports 38 currencies and is available in more than 100 countries, while SEPA transfers can only be executed in euro and within the SEPA area.

What is a multi-currency IBAN solution?
