Barion release notes - 2022.11.21

Short summary

We are publishing some new features in this release:

  • Virtual IBAN feature for bank transfer top-ups,
  • Barion Wallet API key as a new method of API authentication.

Virtual IBAN

Your Barion Wallet now has Virtual IBAN numbers for USD, HUF, and EUR currencies. Instead of manually entering top-up codes, topping up becomes smoother and more error-free. You can check your IBAN numbers in the Top Up menu.

Why is this great news? Here’s a quick laundry list:

  • Forget top-up codes: Having dedicated virtual IBAN account numbers can immediately identify all your top-ups.
  • Less manual errors: The era of entering uniquely generated top-up codes in the comment field is over. You don’t need to type anything manually, just top-up your Wallet and we take care of the rest.
  • One IBAN number for each currency: If you have several currencies in your Barion Wallet, we’ll dedicate a unique virtual IBAN number to every currency. As for HUF-based accounts, you’ll also get a GIRO number.
If you top up Czech crowns (CZK), these improvements will not affect your Barion Wallet. Use your top-up code to transfer CZK to your Barion Wallet.

Barion Wallet API key
