What are EUR account details?
These are your very own account details to receive euros (EUR) with zero fees.
This isn’t a bank account, but the IBAN and SWIFT/BIC code we give you work in the same way when receiving money. Just share your account name, IBAN and SWIFT/BIC code to your friends, company or customers, so they can send you EUR from their bank account.

How to receive EUR
First, you’ll need to get EUR account details.
Then, share your details to the person who wants to pay you.
SEPA bank transfers usually take 0–2 working days to arrive in your account. SWIFT transfers take 2–5 working days.
If you're receiving EUR from outside the EU SEPA zone, the international payment will require correspondent bank details. Most banks will auto-generate this using the SWIFT database. If the person paying you needs routing information, use the following details:
Recipient BIC: TRWIBEB1XXX
Correspondent BIC: BARCGB22
Set up Direct Debits with your EUR account details
You can share your details with a company, and give them the permission to take regular payments from your account.
You might use Direct Debits to pay for a monthly subscription like the gym, or to pay your phone or energy bill.
What if my EUR account details aren’t working?
I can’t set up a Direct Debit
Your EUR account details support Direct Debits via the SEPA core direct debit scheme. We don’t support direct debits made via the SEPA B2B direct debit scheme.
A merchant is blocking my Direct Debit
Despite the Euro single market, some merchants won’t allow Direct Debits from Euro accounts in another country. For example, a Spanish gym might not accept your IBAN because it’s based in Belgium.
Merchants are required by EU law to accept IBANs from other members of the European Economic Area (EEA). So, if someone doesn’t accept your IBAN, please let us know using this form.
You can also report merchants who don’t accept your IBAN to the relevant authority in your country.
A bank isn’t recognising my Wise account details
There are banks — particularly outside of Europe — who may not recognise your account details. If a bank won’t let you or someone who wants to pay you send money to your Wise account, there are 2 things you should do.
