General information about SEPA

The Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) is a payment-integration initiative of the European Union for simplification of bank transfers denominated in euro.

SEPA allows for transactions to be carried out in Euros (EUR) between countries in the SEPA-zone. SEPA is fast, reliable, and cheap for clients to use that are located in the SEPA-zone and/or have access to bank accounts within the SEPA-zone.

SEPA consists of 34 countries: the 28 member states of the European Union, the four member states of the European Free Trade Association (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland), Monaco, and San Marino.
