What is e-money? E-money (electronic money) is money typically stored in a user’s account which can be accessed using a card or an electronic device, such as a mobile phone, and can be used to pay for goods and services. More commonly referred to as “digital” or “electronic wallets”, it also includes any “magnetically stored monetary value", such as payment cards and even computer hard drives.
Where is e-money kept? What happens to my money when it is kept at an electronic money institution? Just like paper money, e-money is kept in accounts or banking computer systems. However, these accounts boast a much higher security level than standard bank accounts. Your money is kept in so-called segregated accounts, which guarantee the inviolability of client funds and do not allow their use as financial resources for lending or investment, which is an activity that some banks engage in.
Is my money safe with Maayan Payments Ltd? Yes! E-money is most secure, as well as fastest way to send or receive money with minimal fees through your online account at any time and at any place. E-money transactions are extremely secure due to the very advanced technologies and multi-tier customer identification procedures used. Whilst Electronic Money products are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) your funds will be held in one or more segregated accounts and safeguarded in line with the Electronic Money Regulations 2011.
What is Safeguarding Under E-Money Regulations? Safeguarding requirements are in place to protect client funds if the institution becomes insolvent. As per the FCA regulations, Maayan Payments LTD has appropriate and well-managed safeguarding arrangements in place to safeguard relevant funds. Relevant funds include customer funds held in accounts or money debited for payment transactions. Safeguarding starts immediately once Maayan Payments as EMI receives the relevant funds and continues until it pays the funds out to the payee or its payment service provider.

How does Maayan Payments Ltd support vulnerable customers? A vulnerable customer is someone whose decision-making and engagement with financial services might be impacted negatively as a result of their personal circumstances.  Vulnerable customers might be more likely to experience detrimental outcomes, which in the event they materialize, are likely to be greater than for other (non-vulnerable) customers. If you believe you might be impacted by any characteristics of vulnerability, it is important that you notify us as soon as possible.  Vulnerability is most often not easily visible and we rely on our customers being open and making us aware of such situations.  Should you wish to notify us about your situation, or if you believe that you are a vulnerable customer, please let us know and send us a message at MAAYAN - Contact Us ( or send us an email at [email protected]
