Hi,

Loading money into your Payhawk is as easy as a bank transfer. However, for a bank transfer, you have to log-in to your online banking, this means changing browser tabs, copy-pasting IBANs, and reference numbers. This is not very efficient...

Our mission is to help you save time on mundane tasks. Now, our Germany-based clients can load funds into their EUR wallets with a few clicks without leaving the Payhawk page.


To use this feature, you need to link your standard bank account to Payhawk and then wire the money. Please see below the simple steps to enable this feature.

Connect your standard bank account to Payhawk

You can connect more than one bank account to Payhawk, you will have to choose each time from which account you would like to load funds from. This step you only have to do once. See below:

  • Log into your Payhawk account
  • Go to Funds on the right-hand side menu
  • Select your EUR wallet
  • Select the +Link new button
  • We redirect you by a secure connection to finleap connect. Payhawk does not have access to your bank data and credentials, as long as you are working in the finleap overlay. Finleap is a regulated third-party provider under the supervision of the German national authority BaFin
