The final step to activate your DEGIRO account is making a verification transfer from your registered bank account.
We require that the names on your bank account, DEGIRO account, and idenfication document match; the inital deposit to your DEGIRO account is used to verify that your registered bank acocunt belongs to you. In case of a discrepancy such as a missing name, our service desk will contact you directly to request additional information.
To verify your account, we ask that you transfer €0.01 to the DEGIRO Verification Account. Once your account is verified, you may fund it with a larger deposit to your personal account.
DEGIRO cannot accept some online bank accounts, such as Wise or Revolut.
