Hi everyone, wanted to list all the EMI's and bank accounts to receive EUR SEPA payments with an UAE company.

Right now I'm trying with:

- OFX
- TorFX
- Currenxie

unfortunately seems like Wise does not accept UAE companies for the moment.

will update the thread if I get the approval of one of that

What size of payments you are going to accept? Have you tried Stripe or 3S Money?

OFX and TorFX are trash.

Currenxie works but very limited features(ex. you can't send money under your company's name).

Airwallex doesn't onboard UAE companies they will just waste your time.

3S Money is overpriced and their onboarding fee is about 2000 eur.

Paysera works but accepts only limited freezones. Payoneer also works but is expensive you can also try finductive.

3s - through an introducer our client was quoted 20k EUR
With 3m revenue they would have had the cost of 100k for payment processing.

Oh wow, what was their field of business, maybe it was high risk? 3% for receiving bank transfers sounds crazy high

Yes, dealing with Belarus to be exact, business itself was not high risk by its nature.

It was rather difficult to find a solution in such case, and given the high fees, setting up structures abroad starts to make more sense (even in UAE).

Ok, I think Belarus is their 3rd zone country. Location itself may be making it high risk. Especially its in a potentially sanctioned territory

My business is low risk(my clients are Google and Apple) and 3S asked for 2000 eur as an onboarding fee + 500 eur monthly fee + fixed fees for every transaction. I already have accounts with top-tier EMIs and real banks and paying very low fees. 3S Money is trying to rip off all non-EU clients.

@rowena Can you please share what EMIs allow SEPA transfers as UAE resident ? Got a Mashreq Neo EURO account but transfers ans slow and expensive.
I have Revolut and N26 as EU resident but I need to stop transactions on them to avoid any residency confusion with my passeport country.

I dont think that WHT is applicable to funds held by the US marketplace on behalf of the customer (app developer), however I'd also like to know the opinion of @rowena
Correct. App Store sales are not subject to WHT.

I already shared. Try Payoneer, Paysera, and Finductive. They all have different pricing and don't expect cheap as Wise but the cheapest one is Paysera.
