Winner 2020 May: Paysera
I have tried all 3 major European online neo-banks for business
Paysera is a financial institution from Lithuania. Even though your money is not insured by European Insurance, in my opinion they are even safer because they are kept by segregated account and this institution is monitored by Lithuanian Bank.
Account opening – super easy with Skype verification and basic company documents.
Fees: 0,15€ for Sepa transfer. ~2.5% for currency exchange. Physical card 5€ per year.
Negative: expensive currency exchange. No virtual cards
Get your virtual card instantly. Both physical and virtual cards for free. Revolut has best pricing from 3 companies compared here.
As they offer only prepaid cards – they can not be used paying some sellers, example: Google Ads. That is a deal breaker for me not to use them. Account opening in Revolut is quite difficult.
The registration is quite easy. The fees are highest for Sepa transfers at 0,63€.
I could not get the physical card twice after i have ordered it to 2 different addresses.
Transferwise is the definate loser in front of Paysera and Revolut Business.
