EEA Residents Can Now Use ecoPayz Personal Virtual IBAN 

Late in 2021 the payment processing company ecoPayz made an announcement that they had integrated into their wallets an IBAN that was virtual. They made this service available to many of their European customers, but not all of them. However, that all recently changed


These days ecoPayz customers from the United Kingdom and all of the countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) can receive a virtual IBAN number, which has several benefits. Having a virtual IBAN number is advantageous to users of the payment processing service ecoPayz provides, as the innovative feature will make payments throughout the European continent much quicker and less expensive as well. 


Transactions using the virtual IBAN number will be able to use sort codes in the United Kingdom as well as typical account numbers. This is great news for European ecoPayz users. 


The EEA is made up of all of the countries that are in the European Union as well as Iceland, Norway, and Liechtenstein. Therefore, the ecoPayz virtual IBAN is available to residents of the countries of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.


All payments using IBAN will be done in Euros. If there are transfers that will use the sort code in the UK the account number for the virtual IBAN will be taken care of in Great British Pounds. 


How to Get the Virtual IBAN 


In order to obtain an IBAN, as well as a United Kingdom sort code, you will need to have an account with ecoPayz. On top of that you must be in the Silver status in the VIP program, which is the second of the five levels. There is no charge to get into the Silver level, as long as you present ecoPayz with the needed documents for identification verification. The documents that you can use to verify your identity are: 


  • Photocopy of your passport, as you will need to show a photo of yourself, your birthday, and your passport number. 
  • Photocopy of a national identity card with a photo, your birthday, and the number of the card. 
  • Photocopy of a valid driver’s license, which shows a photo, birthday, and the number of the license. 


You will also need to send ecoPayz a clear selfie picture of yourself. 


When you check out your ecoPayz account you will be able to find what the IBAN number is and the sort code for the UK. Transfers using the virtual IBAN and UK sort code will come with a small transaction fee.
