European IBAN-Name Check

One connection, global reach.

By confirming that the payee’s name matches with the name on the intended recipient’s bank account, the IBAN-Name Check helps to avoid misdirected payments and reduces push payment fraud. This gives you and your customers confidence that any payments being made are going to the intended beneficiary.

Leading the fight against payment fraud

Payments across the world have increasingly shifted to digital channels, and this has led to a surge in fraud cases, and Authorised Push Payment fraud – where fraudsters trick individuals and companies into paying funds into the wrong accounts – is a growing problem is chief among them.

Our IBAN-Name Check solution has been live since 2017 and is available in multiple European countries. 100+ Banks are connected directly to SurePay or via existing schemes. This enables checking domestic payments as well as Cross Border payments. As of today, we have already performed 6 Billion checks.

This has been achieved through IBAN-Name Check verifications which are carried out by directly querying banks’ account databases. It’s an effective, efficient, and cost-effective way of significantly reducing instances of serious fraud that are very easy to fall victim to.
