Simple check on a IBAN switch

The Switch Check from SurePay uses the data to indicate whether an account holder has switched to a new bank. The new IBAN is simply stored with customer data in his address book.

Are you already using our IBAN-Name Check API?

Then you can easily add the Switch Check to this.

This is the Switch Check

  1. Notification upon initiation of payment
    If a bank uses the SurePay Switch Check, the payer will be notified when the payee has switched to another bank. This way he can immediately pay to the new IBAN and update his address book. This speeds up the adoption of new account numbers.
  2. Switch Check in the API for banks and companies
    The Switch Check is available as an extra service in the IBAN-Name Check API. In case of a "match / near match" result to a switched beneficiary, the API issues a notification with the new IBAN. With a "no match", this is obviously not given to discourage phishing of account numbers. In consultation we can make the Switch Check available to users of the IBAN-Name Check API.
  3. Banks comply with BIBI with the Switch Check
    The Dutch Payments Association requires all banks participating in the Switching Service to introduce BIBI (Informing Payers At Initiation) by the end of 2020 at the latest. These banks will show their customers a notification by the end of 2020 for persons and companies that have switched, via mobile banking or online banking. By using the Switch Check, a bank immediately complies with BIBI.
