    Swapin tools provide an opportunity to make crypto transfers with automatic EUR conversion to the recipient’s IBAN account. For example, users can send a transfer to friends or relatives, pay monthly rent, internet, utilities or loans.

    InstaPay 

    InstaPay is the solution for crypto transfers with instant conversion into EUR to the recipient’s IBAN account. With InstaPay, anyone can make large purchases with crypto, such as real estate or cars.

    To make a transfer, go to the section “InstaPay” which is located in the header of the site in the “Overview” section. 

    Fill in all necessary fields:

    • Predefined payment (select if you have predefined payments template)
    • Beneficiary’s name
    • Beneficiary’s IBAN
    • Amount €

    After filling in all the required fields, select the cryptocurrency intended to send and click “Continue”.

    In this section you have the ability to edit transaction details. You can also check if the wallet address is correct.

    If you have vouchers with which you can pay the conversion and transaction fee, you can use it by clicking “Apply Service Fee Voucher”. Note: Vouchers cannot be used partially, and only one can be applied per transaction.

    Swapin will fix the rate of the chosen cryptocurrency for 30 minutes. During this time, the user will need to make a transfer to the provided address. No matter how much the cryptocurrency exchange rate changes within 30 minutes, the transfer amount will not change for you, as well as the amount in EUR for the recipient.

    After clicking “Continue” the order is now ready and in process. A transaction history of the process will be displayed in the History section.

    It is located in the header of the site in the “All transactions“.

    InstaFill 

    InstaFill is a service connecting a user’s crypto wallet address with their bank account.​ Every time the crypto wallet receives cryptocurrency, Swapin automatically converts it and sends EUR to the specified bank account. The InstaFill solution is also suitable for miners or crypto companies that need to partially convert crypto revenue into fiat currency.

    To work with InstaFill, go to your profile header, click “InstaFill” and then “Create new”.

    • InstaFill name
    • Select coin
    • Beneficiary’s name
    • Beneficiary’s IBAN

    Swapin will connect the BTC account on the platform to the related IBAN. As soon as you fund the crypto account on the platform, the funds will be automatically converted into EUR and transferred to your bank account. After that, each cryptocurrency address will be linked to a specific IBAN.

    Predefined payments 

    The Predefined payments solution provides an opportunity to create templates for transfers and reuse it in the future. This feature is convenient for those who on a monthly basis cover rent, loans, Internet bills, and other utilities. After making a transaction, users can set up a reminder option about the date of the next payment.

    To enter the Predefined payments section, you need to click on InstaPay in your profile header and then select “Predefined” and “Create new“. After creating a template, it can be selected in the future when sending a payment using InstaPay.

    • Amount €
    • Coin
    • Recipient’s name
    • IBAN
    • Receiver address (Street, City, Country)
    • Description

    Click  “Save”

    Now, when you decide to send a payment via InstaPay, in the Predefined payments field, you can select one of your templates and send the transfer instantly, without having to enter data again. Crypto businesses can also use the Predefined payments feature to pay salaries or fixed expenses, such as office rent, servers, internet, and other payments.

    Business solutions 

    Swapin for business tools opens up the possibility for companies to issue invoices for payment in digital assets, with instant conversion into EUR to IBAN account. Moreover, online stores can integrate a widget to accept payments in crypto.

    CoinCollector 

    The CoinCollector tool enables businesses to issue invoices in EUR, which can be paid in cryptocurrency. After payment, the company receives fiat funds to a connected corporate IBAN account. Using this tool, the company generates a unique link for payment in crypto and sends it to the customer. The customer must select a suitable digital asset for payment, after which the Swapin service calculates the exact amount in cryptocurrency and provides the customer with a crypto wallet address to initiate the transfer. The amount is fixed for 30 minutes to protect the value of the cryptocurrency from volatility and protect both parties from risks. As soon as the blockchain transaction is confirmed, the seller will receive EUR in the connected bank account. Payment of the invoice is made in 2 simple steps:

    Step 1

    After receiving an invoice for payment from the seller, fill in all the required fields:

    • Select cryptocurrency
    • Enter amount in EUR
    • Payment Description
    • Referral number (optional)
    • Contact Email
    • Confirm the validity of the entered data
    • Click “Proceed”

    Step 2

    Send a crypto transfer to the provided address. The amount in cryptocurrency is fixed for 30 minutes to avoid the risk of exchange rate fluctuations for both the buyer and the seller.

    After the cryptocurrency arrives at the address provided by Swapin, the service will transfer euros to the recipient’s IBAN account.

    E-Commerce Widget (E-com Widget) 

    E-com Widget is a solution developed specifically for online stores. The tool allows merchants to quickly and easily integrate the acceptance of crypto on any website. The customer has the opportunity to make a purchase using cryptocurrencies, while the seller receives an instant transfer of the requested amount in fiat currency to the corporate IBAN account.

Service Coin allows customers to make payments using the stablecoin and in the near future to buy and sell other supported cryptocurrencies. Service Coin is a private blockchain token and it is usable in the Swapin.com environment. Redemption value of 1 ESCT is 1€.

    To date, only EUR is available for use among fiat currencies on Swapin. According to the roadmap, the company is planning to include support for GBP (in addition to EUR) in the third quarter of 2022.

    Here users can generate a personal referral link that can be shared on social networks, on a website, or blog.
