Do I need a legal entity to work with SecurionPay?

Yes. Incorporation is necessary. SecurionPay does not accept business from individuals or freelancers.

What will be the Set-up Costs?

Set up is free. Unless your business model falls under high-risk, then the bank requests a registration fee of 500 euros.

What about the jurisdiction I come from?

We accept companies that are registered in Europe and we accept entities from Israel, but only for Visa cards processing. Additionally, we have the possibility of merchants who collect payments from outside Europe as long as they do some processing in the EU and have a registered office in Europe.

Can SecurionPay help me to incorporate if I am from a different region than accepted?

Yes. If you have a registration that is not accepted, we can recommend where and how you can incorporate in Europe. SecurionPay is not an agent for such services and does not provide any legally binding advice. We are more than happy to direct you to companies that specialize in providing incorporation services.

I am based in the United States. Can SecurionPay provide services for me?

If you are physically based in the United States but you have a European incorporation, you can work with SecurionPay. You will be asked to have a local representative in Europe with a valid physical European address.

If your company has been registered in the United States, you will still need to incorporate in Europe.

SecurionPay can process transactions coming from US customers in US dollars.

What information should I add in ‘Representative person’ section?

Fill in this section with the address of a person who represents your business in a local market and resides in the country where the local office is registered. You need to provide proof that the representative is domiciled in this country, for example, it should be mentioned in company documents or in a statement signed by the director.

I work as a freelancer and have no corporation, but I have a product I would like to sell. Can I still use SecurionPay?

Due to Card Association rules and banking regulations, you need to have a corporation to work with SecurionPay.

Can you provide me with a list of all the gateways offered by SecurionPay?

SecurionPay is an independent payment gateway. We have certain plug-in options you can use to implement our services with and we don’t limit your options to use other gateways if you wish. Here are some examples: https://securionpay.com/integrations/ and https://github.com/securionpay/.

Will the gateway fee be charged at the time of the transaction or at the end of the month?

The fee is per transaction which is made at the time of processing.

How can I change the company name after the contract has been signed?

This is very easy. You just need to provide us with a new name and a document which confirms the change. You will then receive a special “change form” to sign. Once this is done, it will be submitted to the bank. You will be notified as soon as the change becomes effective.

Which countries does SecurionPay support?

For incorporation, you need to be registered in Europe.

For processing transactions we don’t block any countries. The entire world is open with us, unless you decide differently. You can find the full list of supported countries here: Supported countries and businesses.

Will my company incur any costs from SecurionPay Technical support during our integration?

No, our support team is included in our services and integration.

Is SecurionPay responsible for the underwriting of my documents?

Underwriting is done directly by the bank where you apply for your merchant account, but we can advise you every time whether the documentation you provided is correct.

How much time will it take from signing up to “going live”?

It depends on you. Sign up is immediate, integration takes hours and SecurionPay guarantees 5 working days for the delivery of your merchant account given that your site and documents meet compliance requirements. Please refer to the following link for further details: https://securionpay.com/?s=compliance.

All the documentation your development team will need can be found here: https://securionpay.com/developers/ (if there is something more technical or specific for your integration, you can contact our support and they will assist you further).

I run a startup and I want to integrate SecurionPay services. Does my website need to be live?

SecurionPay’s compliance requires test login details to check the internal functionality and content of the business, but our acquiring banks require the site/app to be in live mode.

Can we set-up a fully automated invoicing system using SecurionPay to accept payments from and send payments to our global company partners and individuals?

This would have to be done via your backend and developers. Through the dashboard of SecurionPay, you are able to see your processing history and details, but we don’t provide the option to automate invoicing after a customer makes a purchase with your service. However, you can you can use Zapier integration to connect payments with your CRM or invoicing system.
