Your money is safe and protected in accordance with the Electronic Money Regulations which are designed to ensure the safety of funds held in electronic money accounts like your Pay3000 Account. Unlike banks, there is no lending out customer money and your account has no interest bearing. Instead of protecting your money in a deposit guarantee scheme which does not apply to our services, your money is safeguarded by Sureswipe E.M.I.
Safeguarding means that, by law, your money is kept in accounts that are completely separate from corporate accounts that are used for running a business. These funds are called ‘safeguarded funds’.  This means that, in case of insolvency, your e-money will not be used against payment of EMI’s liabilities. It should be noted that segregated account(s) will be established, maintained, and operated according to the applicable rules and regulations.
