Does Moneybase lend my money to others?

No! Moneybase is not a Credit Institution. We are a licensed Financial Institution authorised by the Malta Financial Services Authority to provide payment services.

As a Financial Institution we do not conduct certain services which a Credit Institution typically offers, such as taking customer deposits and granting loans out of those same deposits. Our offering is focused on bringing you the best available technology to make money simple by solving your payments headaches.

Is my money safe with Moneybase?

Yes, it is safe, because there are several regulatory restrictions intended to safeguard your account against the risks to which your money can be exposed. Since we are not a bank, we do not lend any of the money that you place in your payment account or your electronic money account. As a result, your money is always protected and Moneybase is not required to contribute towards the Depositor Compensation Scheme for the protection of your money, as would be the case with traditional banks.

Because we never lend your money to others and any loans or overdrafts granted to you are issued out of our own capital, your money’s risk exposure is low. All customer funds are banked with reputable banks in the European Union, in duly designated segregated client accounts, in accordance with our legal and regulatory obligations as a licensed Financial Institution. Besides, your card transactions are also protected by the Mastercard or Visa rules.

Are you licensed across the EU?

Yes, we have passported all our payment and investment services throughout the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area countries (EEA).

Can I use money held on my Moneybase account in shops?  

Yes, of course you can. You just need to order a Moneybase card. A Moneybase card will allow you to make in-store and online payments using the latest 3DS2 technology, which is both convenient and secure.

You can also use your Moneybase card to withdraw cash from ATM machines. Our cards will also give you access to the Mastercard network globally.

How much does it cost to use Moneybase’s services?  

Opening a Moneybase account is free and comes with a number of free services included. Our fees can be found here.

Can I speak to someone to guide me through your offering?
