PayTechTalk 30 | BaFin-Erlaubnis für Zahlungsdienstleister

Since the implementation of PSD2, or most likely even before, many companies have been preoccupied with one question: How, as a payment institution, do I get a BaFin licence?

In this episode of PayTechTalk, we deal with all the important questions concerning permission applications. This is how the approval for a BaFin licence for payment institutions works!

BaFin licence for payment institutions? That’s what we’re talking about:

  • Why do I need a BaFin license as a payment institution – and why not?
  • What types of permits are there?
  • How does the licensing procedure work?
  • How long does the licensing procedure take?
  • What does the permit cost?

Peter and I answer all these questions in PayTechTalk 30. Enjoy more than half an hour of concentrated know-how!
