Funding accounts

Nium has two types of funding accounts: pre-funded and credit.
Pre-funded accounts are limited to the amount of money you have added to your accounts.
Credit accounts have an agreed limit, which Nium sets. Credit accounts are only available to companies that have credit agreements with Nium.

NOTE

Credit is a custom feature and is dependent on your specific terms and conditions. Please contact your account manager if you want to apply for credit.

This must be a recent statement (no more than 3 months old). It must include your account holder name, your IBAN/account number, and your bankโ€™s logo.
If you do not provide Nium with this information, it may cause delays when you try to add or withdraw money from your funding account.

Adding money from a bank account

Before adding money from a bank account to a Nium funding account, you must have a linked bank account and a funding account configured in the web app. See Linking a bank account to learn how to link a bank account. To learn how to create a funding account, seeโ€ƒCreating a funding account

You can add money from your bank account to your funding account via bank transfer or with your accountโ€™s assigned virtual IBAN. You will find all the information necessary to perform this bank transfer correctly in the web app.

๐Ÿ“˜

NOTE:

You only need to use the web app if you want to make the bank transfer using Inpay (if available for your account). You can also make a direct bank transfer to Num. When you open your Nium account, you will receive instructions on how to make a direct bank transfer to Nium. If you have not received this information, contact your Client Delivery Specialist.
