Rapyd is a regulated EMI. However, the fintech has only 2.8 stars on Trustpilot and a corresponding “Average” trust level. Especially in the last months, merchants have complained significantly about payouts and account freezing.
FinTelegram has already found Rapyd to be a payment facilitator in some scams. The Rapyd VP EMEA used to run the notorious Cypriot payment processor AlgoPay which facilitated binary options scams. Therefore, we include Rapyd in our “Orange Compliance” list.
