Creating an account in Barion

This article contains information about creating an account in the Barion system.

To register, visit the Barion website and click the "Sign up now" button.

if you are a developer, it is recommended to create an account in the Sandbox environment first.

Individual, business

You can register yourself as an individual, a business entity (non-profit organization should register a business account). Please make sure you have chosen the proper registration type (e.g. do not register as an individual if you have a company running your business). Failing to do so will result in difficulties validating yourself through our KYC process.

Different currencies

You can choose from the following available currencies upon registration:

  • CZK (Czech crown)
  • EUR (Euro)
  • HUF (Hungarian forint)
  • USD (U.S. dollar)

You must choose one currency to create your account with. You can manually add the other ones later on the "My currencies" page.

Anonimity and limits

When you create an account as an individual, you have the option to be completely anonymous in the system. In such case, you only have to provide your e-mail address and a password. You can use your personal account with an e-mail only up to the balance of HUF 65 000. You must fill in your personal data to lift this limit. If you register as a business or non-profit organization, you must provide additional data related to your business.

At the end of the registration process with all the fields filled in, your account will be in an unverified status. This means there are several limits applied to your account. These limits are descibed here in detail: Barion FAQ on limits

To disable these limits, you must undergo our KYC procedure to verify your account.
