About

B2B Transfers

International transfers should not be expensive and slow.

B2B Pay's mission

To make B2B transfers affordable, transparent and instantaneous.

Virtual bank accounts

VBAs are the best way to redefine the banking industry.

Our pricing model is based on two pillars:
Transparent, straightforward pricing
Lowest possible rates

We can perform payments from Europe to anywhere.

The Process

  1. We simplify the paperwork

    You provide us with the required documentation at sign-up. We go through a KYC/AML compliance check and ensure the banks and authorities involved receive the needed documentation.

  2. We provide your business with an euro account with your IBAN number

    With SEPA you can receive euro payments from 35 countries in Europe at no cost.

  3. We immediately notify you

    When your money arrives in the account and when we send the money to your local bank account for the best fee in the market.

You will save between 50% and 85% in transaction fees with an accompanied increased profit margin of 7% up to 20% when choosing B2B Pay over a wire transfer from one of the 200,000 banks in Europe.

Our Story

In 2013, Neil was helping restructure a small pharmaceutical exporter in India, near Mumbai. He noticed that by the time the transaction was processed, the exporter had lost 20-30% of their gross margin due to international fees and currency conversion rates.

Hundreds of thousands of companies perform transactions with their customers in Europe. In almost all cases the payment is initiated at a local bank. The non-resident company carries all the costs related to the transaction.

B2B Pay uses the latest technology to save money and improve profitability for these companies. Our solution is 80% cheaper and faster than the current methods. Read more about us here.

2. Non-resident company's information

  • You upload the required documents related to your company and to your company's beneficiaries.
  • We review these documents and provided information with the appropriate authorities.

Once the information is approved, you provide us with your local bank account details. We have strict procedures in place about changing these details.

If you are not eligible for a B2B Pay account we will suggest some of our partner companies that would be a great fit for your company.

2. Your own virtual IBAN and virtual bank account

As soon as the customer's due diligence checks are cleared, we issue you an IBAN number for your virtual bank account. Paperwork and bureaucracy are significantly reduced. You can use this IBAN on your invoices to European customers. When a payment arrives in the account we will inform you and send the money to your local bank account.

Your customer in Europe can make a simple SEPA payment. Euro payments in 36 European countries are handled without any fee (in most cases, or a nominal fee if there's a fee) and SEPA payments are usually settled the next business day. We have negotiated a deal with our FX partners to secure our customers the best deal.

We are very happy to hear from you if you have questions or comments. Check our FAQ or contact us through our website or give us a call.

How it works

 

  1. Financial Technology

    Financial technology, also known as Fintech, is a line of business based on using software to provide financial services. Financial technology companies are generally startups founded with the purpose of disrupting incumbent financial systems and corporations that rely less on software.

    Wikipedia: Financial technology

    Fintech companies are taking parts of what banks are doing and optimising heavily.

    They’re doing things that would have been impossible 10 years ago, that probably would have been impossible 5 years ago.

    Business Insider: This is how a new crop of companies is trying to reinvent banking

    This quote is about peer-to-peer lending, but the same story is happening throughout all functions of financial institutions. B2B Pay is focusing on international B2B payments because we are confident that we can innovate.


  2. Reduced operating costs

    Unlike banks we're not employing hundreds or even hundreds of thousands of people. We don't have big offices. Banks have many costly legacy processes. B2B Pay is a nimble organisation that mostly automates its work.

    We needed a partner who could understand our needs and provide us with a solution to take payment in our customers' currency, in order for them to not pay high fees via banks and international wire transfers. B2B Pay is the perfect solution for our business: SEPA wire transfers are easy and fast. Our customers don't pay any additional fees and they get the best conversion rate! Our customers are very pleased with this solution, and so are we!

  3. Fast & flexible B2B money transfer

    When it comes to building our company reliability comes first. Nevertheless we are still about a 100 times faster than any big bank when it comes to your B2B money transfer.


  4. Virtual bank account for aggregation of funds

    We're combining a large number of transactions, so that a 10k€ payment will actually be transferred for the rate of a 10M€ transaction. When you do smaller transactions the spread costs are much higher. Banks typically charge between 3-6% on international transactions and currency exchange for transactions up to 1M€, without explicitly telling you. If you enquire you will get the reply that the cost is "only" 30€ for an international transaction.

    If you look deeper into this you see that the currency exchange happens at a price far from the mid-market rate.
