On Trustpilot, Paybis holds a 4-5-star rating with a corresponding “Excellent” trust level, which is an exception in the crypto space. We have not found any other complaints. The website does not explain its regulatory environment. Also operating via a UK entity, Paybis is apparently not registered with the FCA as a crypto firm.
Paybis is a registered partner of UAB “Finansinės paslaugos „Contis,“ part of the German Solaris Group, which holds the electronic money institution license issued by the Bank of Lithuania
Paybis is registered with U.S. FinCEN as a Money Service Business (MBS). However, in its Terms, the crypto payment processor says that U.S. clients are processed via its partner Zero Hash, a licensed US money transmitter and technology provider for the digital asset ecosystem, to provide services to U.S. clients.
While we do consider Paybis an honest company with great service, we surely miss the detailed regulatory data, which is of utmost legal importance. Thus, we included Paybis in our “Orange Compliance” list.
