eKonto is a type of a bank account available through Raiffeisen Bank in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. This type of method of payment is definitely one of the biggest in the region. The eKonto account offers many advantages to its customers and to benefit from them you will need to have three services attached to your account. Some of these include current account, direct banking and a debit card.
With eKonto you can make purchases on the Internet in real time and directly from your bank account. When trying to pay via this method you will be looking either for the eKonto sign or the ePlatby sign. The payment order will be created automatically, with high degree of security and the transaction will be processed within minutes. With a pre-filled payment order you are saving time and do not need to worry about filling out the wrong information.
The limits of eKonto are obvious, if you do not live in the Czech Republic and Slovakia and do not have a bank account in Raiffeisen this option is not available for you, but if you happen to fulfill the mentioned criteria this seems like a preferred method in this part of the world.
