Binance has partnered with the payments technology company, Paysafe to fully reopen payment transfers with two major fiats, the euro and the pound sterling, the cryptocurrency exchange announced on Monday.

Deposits and withdrawals with the two fiats have already been enabled via the SEPA payment network (SEPA) in Europe and Faster Payment Services (FPS) in the United Kingdom.

However, retail users from the Netherlands and Switzerland will not be able to make payments using SEPA, the exchange specified. Moreover, payment support using SEPA and FPS is not available for corporate accounts.

Binance is actively collaborating with Paysafe to expand our scope of services,” the crypto exchange said.

Binance was earlier offering fiat payment services in the two jurisdictions with its Clear Junction partnership. Its partnership with Paysafe was unveiled earlier in January, but the crypto exchange has been reponing the services in phases for its European clients.

Roadblocks for Fiat Payments

Payment services with fiat currencies have always been a matter of concern for unregulated cryptocurrencies . Regulatory warnings on the industry often force banks and other financial service companies to backtrack from their ties with crypto exchanges.

Coinbase was one of the reputed crypto companies that struggled for months to gain a banking partner in the United Kingdom to re-enable its FPS support. But, as more and more regulators are focusing on crypto regulations, these roadblocks will certainly disappear.

Meanwhile, Binance is planning for the long term and has launched a payments technology company recently. At present, it supports more than 50 cryptocurrencies, enabling merchants to accept crypto payments.
