Switch Check

The Switched Account Check, also known as “Overstap Check” in the Netherlands, is an additional feature. This feature enables organisations to perform an additional check on the IBAN entered by the user to see if the payee has switched banks. If the payee has switched banks, the API will provide the new IBAN of the payee. The organisation can update the data of the payee accordingly.

To gain access to SurePay's add-ons, customers are required to notify service@surepay.nl first. This notification is essential to enable access to these additional features.

Request

To receive the Switching service object for a provided account, there are no changes required in the regular API request.
