Switch Check

IBAN-Name Check Add-on

Would you like to know immediately whether a contact person or company has switched to another bank? With the Switch Check from SurePay you see this automatically.

How does it work?

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

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.
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.
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.

Switch Check
A service that is provided by the banks due to regulation to make it easy for a consumer to switch from a bank. When a customer has moved to a new bank the company needs to ask the customer to update their payment details. This can easily be done by the Switch Check; if the IBAN-Name Check matching result is a “Match” or “Close Match” and the switching service is “active”, the new correct IBAN of the user will be provided. Companies can automatically update the correct payment details and skip multiple steps in the process.
