Opening an account in the payment system

Send Request

The term “payment system” (PSs) refers to EMI platforms like PayPal, Revolut, and Wise that permit businesses to accept e-payments. These platforms are secure, fast, and widely used—so it’s in your best interest to get on board. Whether you’re a business owner or a freelancer, you may need an account in such a system to streamline your work processes. You may easily open an account with Eternity Law International by contacting us. An overview of how to do it is outlined below.

What is a payment system (in the context of EMI)?

In the context of e-money institutions, PSs are online banks that authorize you to pay for commodities and services virtually. You can keep funds in your accounts, or transfer them to others, and handle all of your payments without needing physical wallets. Each PS offers its own features and benefits that are customized to the client’s needs. It’s important to do some research to find the one that best suits you prior to opening an account.

The standards imposed by the regulator on EMIs (in the EU) are comparable to those imposed on banks, and they are constantly monitored, ensuring the safety of deposits. The payment institution also is forbidden to operate with client deposits and is required to maintain client funds in separate, specialized (segregated and secured) bank accounts. Most PSs will issue you a personal IBAN, which ensures that counterparties will only make payment operations to your credentials. You will also be able to conduct multicurrency operations, SWIFT payments, and much more.

Such platforms service natural persons, legal entities, organizations, and government agencies. If you are an individual looking to make or take payments from other individuals or businesses, you can register with most EMIs. For this purpose, the EMI will require, in addition to the questionnaires, the following documents: scan of the passport, selfie with a passport and document confirming the place of residence. The documents and procedures differ subject to the chosen EMI.

For legal entities, joining a PS is also an essential step toward taking virtual transactions from clients. To do this, businesses will need to submit corporate data such as their company names, tax ID numbers, and other corporate data.

In some cases, there may be limitations on who can open an account based on location or industry. For instance, some EMIs may not provide services in certain countries or may have limitations when it comes to high-risk industries like gambling or adult entertainment.

Overall though, opening an account is straightforward and accessible for anyone who needs to transfer or receive funds via the web.

How to open an account in PS

This typically includes the below-mentioned steps:

  • Registration and creating an account for an individual (this is done online);
  • Online filling out of questionnaires;
  • Initial analysis of the case by the PI, in particular, verification of beneficiaries, directors, companies, counterparties.
  • If after the initial check no questions arise, then a more in-depth study (due diligence) is carried out; at this stage, you will be asked for additional data;
  • Linking your bank account or credit/debit cards.
