  • Set up a prepaid account with us – this requires a pre-approved agreement with the ISE which takes approx. 2 weeks to set up. Please email our Finance Department finance@ise.ie if you are interested in this option. If you have an existing pre-paid account you can extend this to include unlisted ISINs processing.

How do I set up an account with PayPal?

You need to set up a PayPal business account. PayPal facilitates multi-currency payment through bank transfer or direct from an established PayPal business account so this may be a suitable alternative for some users.
