How can I make N26 my main account?
ℹ️ Applies to Germany
We can help make N26 your main account by moving your daily banking from another account: we’ll inform any payment partners who charge recurring direct debits (like for your monthly subscriptions or bills) or who transfer money to your account (such as your employer), and we’ll explain how to set up standing orders or transfer any remaining funds over.
There are three ways to switch your bank accounts over to N26:
Account switching service powered by FinReach
Together with our partner FinReach we’re offering you a platform to easily switch your bank accounts online. It’s an automated process and completely free.
To begin, use our form and log in with your previous bank account details. Once you’ve filled in all required information, it’ll take 5 to 7 business days for us to send out all notification letters. Your payment partners may need additional time to change your bank details for future transactions.
Account switching service support
You could also inform your payment partners yourself. To do this, fill out the letter to notify your payment partners and send it to them. You could also request the termination of your bank account with your previous bank by filling out the form and sending it to them.
This service is also free. If you need help with this process, contact our Customer Support via chat.
Mandatory account switching service as per ZKG (Zahlungskontengesetz)
All German licensed banks are required to offer a bank account switching service as part or §21 ZKG (Zahlungskontengesetz). To initiate this service, please download and print the account switching form and send it to: N26 Bank GmbH Kundenservice Klosterstraße 62 10179 Berlin.
Once we’ve received your request, we’ll process it within 7 business days. Your payment partners may need additional time to change your bank details for future transactions.
We charge a fee of up to €20 for this service, depending on your individual request.
