Our partnership: a sign of trust

La Banque Postale is committed to providing quality solutions to meet its customers' expectations. Therefore, when it presents CashSentinel to secure the purchase or the sale of a vehicle, it is the sign of trust of the value and security of our solution.

With several years of commercial operations in a market that requires ever greater security, CashSentinel offers a simple, digital and innovative solution. Established at the end of 2019, this partnership enables La Banque Postale to provide a digital and secure alternative to bank-issued checks.

The CashSentinel service enables customers to create and manage digital contracts independently, protecting not only their payment, but also the contractual commitments of each party; while offering a range of handpicked options, usually reserved to professionals, that anyone can now subscribe in a few clicks.
