SurePay is a lookup service for the Netherlands which can be used during an identity verification process to cross-check that a specific bank account is owned by the end-user. This service can be useful in several scenarios; for example, if a company needs to make regular payments to their users' bank accounts, they may want to verify the accounts during onboarding. In this scenario, being able to confirm that the bank account provided by the user is indeed owned by them can help prevent fraud and mistakes, which in turn improves the user's experience. SurePay can also be used to check the ownership of a company's bank account.
The main advantage of using SurePay through Signicat is that, by integrating towards the Signicat Identity Platform, you will be able to use not just SurePay, but also all the other lookups, eID methods and other services offered by Signicat.
If you are interested in SurePay, you should know that there are two main ways in which you can use it through the Signicat platform: as a standalone microservice or in combination with iDIN (see the iDIN method page for further information). Both options can also be used as a step within a longer onboarding process. Once you have integrated towards the Signicat platform, you will be able to use SurePay in any context you see fit, including the services offered by Signicat (identity verification, authentication, and signing), but also independently. The main advantage is that integrating towards the Signicat platform allows you to use not only SurePay, but also any other service provided by Signicat: from other lookup services to different ID methods from several different countries.
