Certain banks have set up a section of the app or a page on their websites to collect the pertinent details to obtain the IBAN code of users who are not interested in signing up for the service, but only in collecting their money (in this case, the transaction does not occur in real time).
Currently, Jiffy is only offered to private users with a current account or a prepaid card with an IBAN code.
Jiffy is an interoperable service, because it uses the European SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) standards and can therefore be used by all banks in countries that can make and receive payments in Euro.
