Hello bank! It is the 100% electronic offer of BNP Paribas Bank. Signing up and activating the Hello Business professional bank account work on the same principle.
The professional opens the account in advance directly online. After filling in his key information (SIRET, ID, contact email, etc.), he is quickly contacted by a Hello Business Consultant. The latter is responsible for the final verification of the opening of the professional account.
Once this confirmation is received, the entrepreneur must sign an online account agreement, submit their supporting documents and make the first transfer of between 10 and 300 euros. This first transfer is called the ‘Activation Transfer’.
Activation of Hello Business pro account is mandatory. In order to ensure the security of opening, this transfer must be made from an applicant’s bank account. It can be a private account, but it must be based in the European Union. Hello Business Consultant may request proof of identity from the bank account holder who made the activation transfer.
Once you have completed all these steps, the Hello Business Consultant will verify the validity of the application in order to open the professional account permanently. This service for entrepreneurs reserves the right to refuse to open an account. In this case, the activation transfer will be returned as soon as possible to the sender’s account.
