Confirmation of Payee

We all want peace of mind when sending money. That's why we've implemented Confirmation of Payee so your customers can easily verify who they are paying. This means fewer payment queries as your customers know their money is going to the right place.

It's that one extra level of confidence that we know goes a long way.
