Alchemy Pay, the world’s leading crypto payment solutions provider, has expanded its payment options in the Europe and UK regions. The introduction of the Euro Instant solution SEPA Instant and the UK fast e-money transfer solution Faster Payments enhances its On-Ramp service, allowing users to swiftly execute transfers and seamlessly acquire cryptocurrencies within a matter of seconds to a few minutes. By introducing these new solutions, users now have a more diverse range of choices, leading to an increased success rate in completing order payments.

On Alchemy Pay’s On-Ramp, SEPA Instant boasts a transfer limit ranging from €1 to €5000, while Faster Payments offers a transfer limit between £1 and £5000. These two channels are accessible to users in 30 European countries and the United Kingdom who have successfully undergone the KYC process. This initiative reflects Alchemy Pay’s commitment to refining its payment channel offerings, aiming to enhance user satisfaction and broaden service accessibility.

SEPA (Single Euro Payment Area) serves as a payment network that links the European banking system, with SEPA Instant providing 24/7 real-time transfer capabilities, which adds flexibility and convenience for cross-border payment. On average, SEPA Instant has played a crucial role in facilitating daily transactions exceeding 2 billion Euros, and demonstrated a consistent upward trend.

The Faster Payments Service, a banking initiative in the United Kingdom, aims to accelerate the processing times for payments between customer accounts at different banks, serving millions of individuals, businesses, and charities throughout the UK. Owing to the adoption of online and mobile banking, Faster Payments is expected to experience significant expansion in the coming decade, with an anticipated processing of over 5.7 billion remote banking payments by the year 2031, according to UK Finance.

At present, Alchemy Pay has significantly expanded its network, encompassing over 300 fiat payment channels across 173 countries. It extends its capabilities to include local mobile wallets and domestic bank transfer, offering users a broader range of payment options. Although it dominates the market especially in Southeast Asia, Alchemy Pay is actively extending its comprehensive services worldwide. In addition to the support of various European local payment channels such as BLIK, Bancontact, Skrill, among others, the recent additions of SEPA Instant and Faster Payments present new options for users in Europe and the UK. This move further amplifies Alchemy Pay’s payment network throughout Europe, surpassing emerging markets and broadening its influence.

The comprehensive coverage of payment channels by Alchemy Pay is supported by Alchemy Pay’s widespread licensing accomplishments and its strict adherence to regulations across various regions. Notably, it recently achieved the Money Services License in Iowa, United States, marking its second successful licensing endeavor following the acquisition of a license in Arkansas in September. Currently, Alchemy Pay possesses licenses in the United States, Canada, Indonesia, and Lithuania. Its unwavering dedication to compliance and regulatory standards establishes it as a reliable fiat-crypto payment gateway, ensuring smooth transactions for both individual users and business partners.
