Top up your VeraCash® account buying precious metals: your euros are instantly converted into grammes of gold or silver.

5. Debit distribution
1. Fill out your personal information
Fill out the registration form with your personal information to generate: a username, a login ID, and choose a four-digit password. Make sure to remember these, as you will need them to sign in to your VeraCash® account later.
Once you have registered, you can complete your profile at My Account > My information.
2. Submit the required documents
VeraCash® is an official agent of the financial institution Prepaid Financial Services (PFS). As such, we need to verify that you are indeed the person you claim to be, so VeraCash® will ask you for : a legible copy of your official identification, a proof of address and and a copy of any document showing your bank account number.
You can take photos of these documents on your mobile phone and upload them to our website or—even more easily—via our app.
3. Manage your distribution
Your distribution is set to 100% GoldSpot by default, meaning you will only buy GoldSpot when you top up your account. Want to buy other assets? No problem. Simply go to My Account > My distribution and choose your personal distribution between gold, silver and diamonds.
Tip: You can change your distribution at any time between purchases.
4. Top-up to buy precious metals
Ready to top up your account? Great! You will need to make your first deposit by sending a bank transfer* to your personal VeraCash® IBAN. No minimum amount is required and, once this transfer is processed, you will soon be able to top up by bank card. Tip: interbank processing can take up to 72 hours, so credit your account as soon as you can – even if it’s just by EUR 10!
* Funds transferred to your VeraCash® account must come from a bank account held by the VeraCash® account holder. Funds cannot be accepted directly from third parties at this point.
5. Spend however you like
Save or spend your precious metals, the choice is yours! Here too, you have complete control over your debit distribution, i.e. the material that will be used when you make a payment or withdrawal by card, or even if you transfer VRC to another member.
