  • Recipients of payments to a phone number must first register through their bank’s app. The register is operated by the Czech National Bank (CNB)

  • Recipients and payers of payments to a phone number do not have to be clients of the same bank
  • Payments to a phone number can only be made in CZK from a CZK bank account to an account in another bank that supports payments to a phone number. Payments in other currencies are not available for this service
