An open system
Bankgirot is an open system. It is open for both the payer and the payee. As a payer, you can always reach the payee, regardless of who you bank with. As a payee you can receive payments from anyone, regardless of who you bank with. All banks operating in Sweden can participate in the open bankgiro system. Bankgirot is the link between the sender and receiver of the payment in the system, transferring the payment and distributing information about the transaction to all the parties involved. The information is always transmitted, regardless of the participating banks at either end of the transaction.
The bankgiro number
A bankgiro number can be connected to the banks and bank accounts you choose. The Bankgiro number is not an account number, but an address that points to a bank account. When you need to receive a payment, you just need to supply your bankgiro number – you never need to give out your bank account number. This is always hidden from the payer. If you change banks, you can keep your existing bankgiro number and your bankgiro payments will continue to work in the normal way.
