Solutions for people, who want to open an current account without Schufa (credit investigation company)

100 % guarantee of account opening

Most direct banks in Germany check a potential customer’s income and creditworthiness before opening a checking account. This is the reason, why applications for an account by people who have not yet build a “credit history” are often rejected.

Both providers compared on this site do not do such checks. Therefore a successful account opening is practically guaranteed, if one is willing to pay the fees for the account in return.

If you know our special portal for some time, you know that we love to test the presented accounts and cards for ourselves extensively. This also applies to 100 % to our comparison of Schufa-free accounts.

By the way, this is the background, why one cannot find interminable lists of providers with us. We deal from the outset only with the subjective list of our most thrilling providers!

  1. Hubert says:

    Can I use Viabuy as a salary account too?

    • Gregor says:

      Yes, you can. However, please note that it is a credit card with (limited) account function and not a current account with credit card. For example, you can make transfers. Debit entries are not possible.

      At the Onlinekonto by PayCenter, debit entries, as well as standing orders, are possible. It is a current account with Mastercard.

  2. Ali says:

    I’m sorry I could not understand this, is this a prepaid credit card where I have to transfer my own money everytime I use it or is this a credit card where they give us 10,00 Euro limit then we pay after.

    Thanks for reply.

    • Editorial Team says:

      Yes, correct. Both accounts run on a credit balance basis. This means, that you can only use that money with the card that has been deposited in advance.

      • Richard says:

        Hello, when the card comes newly, how much credit would be inside the card already. Because I am confused.

        Warm regards.

        • Richard Banks says:

          0. A credit line – at the ING this is called “Dispo” – must be requested separately. If you do not have a line of credit, your account and card need to stay within their balance.
