Solaris' Digital Banking product allows you to offer current accounts to retail (B2C), freelance, and business (B2B) customers. These are fully-fledged bank accounts with German, French, Italian, or Spanish IBANs (depending on which branch you use).
With Solaris' current accounts, your customers will have full access to the SEPA network and can make SEPA Direct Debit and SEPA Credit Transfer transactions. You can also issue debit cards to them (VISA or MasterCard) with your own custom designs.
If you are currently integrating Solaris in your solution for the first time, then please see the Get started guide for detailed step-by-step instructions on how to do so.
