(3) We discovered freelancers are special.
A lot of freelancers operate without a registered company and yet they act as consultants, outsourcing agents and even full-time contractors for some of their clients. This creates business-like money needs, which require suitable e-money management & payment tools. “iCard for Business” is perfectly aligned with self-employed professionals with no legally registered business.
For a very low monthly cost Freelancers get the same benefits as a business, with just a reduced monthly turnover of 50,000 Euros.
Once you are fully verified, you can instantly create accounts in 10+ currencies. This is a great way to save on both foreign exchange for money coming in through your client contracts, while not paying for any incoming transfers – European or global. You can keep your income in the original currency and either pay it out without converting or save money with iCard’s competitive foreign currency exchange rates.

And we delivered.
Just like any other iCard user, you can use the mobile banking app to securely access your money with a fingerprint login.
Then, with a few taps, you can make European SEPA transfers (1 Euro cost) to any IBAN account of suppliers or contractors.

Our simple 20 Euro monthly fee gives your organization unlimited business Visa debit cards. You can lock/unlock specific cards through the mobile app or online platform and retain full control over employee spending with custom card limits.
As a business manager, you can delegate “view only” or “full access” rights to your accountant or other people, so they can work with your downloadable reports or assist with money management.
You can delegate full rights to anyone from your company, but to keep things in your control, you can opt to authorize any kind of outgoing transaction immediately after you get the instant notification.
Companies with employees from many EU countries
Some of iCard’s truly European clients choose our services for the simple and effective Payroll and mass-payment. This service is only available in the online banking interface because it works with downloadable spreadsheets for convenient payment instructions uploads.
If you are switching from another provider, your recurring payments can be up and running after a quick setup and you need to manually cancel any of them at the end of a contract. Scheduled payments are an alternative of mass-payments that is more suitable for term-based, fixed amount payments.
