SurePay delivers an Account Check to financial institutions, who can implement the service in their online environment. The service provides at a pre-payment stage the bank’s customers with instant feedback on the correctness of entered beneficiary details when making a transfer online. That way, end-users are prompted with a notification in case entered beneficiary details deviate from those known at the bank of registry. This helps to prevent fraud and mistakes.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    IBAN-Name-Check (NL)

    What is required for implementation?

    On the bank’s side, there are two important things to consider.

    First of all, the API that allows for Account Name Verification has to be integrated into your online banking environment.

    Secondly, data provisioning has to be taken care of. This concerns the provisioning of customer data by your bank to SurePay so that SurePay’s algorithm can match the payment data to your bank’s customer data. Further information on required implementation efforts can be found in the sample Implementation Plan

    What is the IBAN-Name Check or Confirmation of Payee exactly?

    When making a transfer online, the IBAN-Name Check and the SurePay Confirmation of Payee verify entered account details of the beneficiary prior to the actual transfer. The verification is based on the unique combination of the account holder’s name information beloning to a specific account number. The payer’s bank sends the entered account name and number to SurePay, which in turn verifies the details against the available data in order to provides a response. Should entered details be incorrect (i.e. the beneficiary name does not match with the names known at the bank for this account number), then the payment initiator will get a notification. The payer might be at risk of payment fraud or possibly has made a mistake.

    The IBAN-Name Check is tailored for the Dutch market and the SurePay Confirmation of Payee adheres to UK market requirements, rules and regulations.

    Which notifications can I get?

    Should entered account details match the information known at the bank for the relevant account number, generally no notifications are prompted. When this is not the case, you can distinguish three main types of notifications:


    When the entered name does not match with the account information known at the relevant bank by any means – for instance ‘D. Williams’ instead of ‘K. James’ – a warning notification is prompted. Please be aware that you might be subject to a scam, fraud or may have made a mistake. The notification will tell you that the account holder is registered under a different name at the relevant bank. Consider alternative measures or get in touch with the beneficiary before proceeding to transfer any funds.

    Name Suggestion

    In case of minor errors, such as a typo, you will be prompted with a suggested name as registered at the relevant bank. For instance, ‘Williams’ instead of ‘Wiliams’. Please check whether the suggested name belongs to the person/company you are intending to transfer funds to.

    Service Not Available

    SurePay verifies account numbers and their information across its base. In case SurePay is not able to verify account details against an account number, you will be notified as well. This can, for instance, occur for foreign bank accounts numbers for which SurePay may have insufficient information available.

    IBAN-Name Check for Organisations

    Which account numbers can be checked?

    The IBAN-Name Check can handle all Dutch bank accounts (IBAN). SurePay can check all IBAN-Name-combinations in your customer- and supplier databases as long as the IBANs are Dutch and start with NL. Your database can contain checking- and savings accounts. Personal and business accounts. Issued by Rabobank or any other Dutch bank. At present, the coverage of foreign account numbers is insufficient to support checks of foreign IBANs.

    SurePay Confirmation of Payee checks all UK bank accounts.

    How does SurePay protect my data?
