How can we help?

My recipient has not received the money I sent

As rare as it is, there may be exceptional cases in which the transfer might take slightly longer than usual to reach your recipient:

  • Some banks and payment schemes don't process transfers during weekends and bank holidays
  • Some banks may take a longer time to process transfers
  • Most banks cannot process transfers with incorrect recipient details, such as account number or IBAN typos
  • All banks and payment service providers are required to run checks on your payments to comply with regulations, which may cause delays

If you want to check the status of a transfer you made from your Revolut account, the best way is to directly check with your recipient if they received it. Please check with them that:

  • Your transfer matches their account details
  • Your transfer currency matches your recipient's account currency
  • The funds haven't been returned to you

It is also possible that the beneficiary bank received the transfer, but is facing issues processing it to your recipient's account. You can help speed up the process by providing your recipient the Transfer Confirmation related to your transfer found within your Revolut app, which contains the information, needed for the receiving bank to trace your transfer.

  1. Go to your Revolut Accounts page
  2. Find the relevant transfer
  3. Click 'Confirmation' to get the PDF document
  4. Send the PDF to your recipient's bank

If your transfer is returned to us by the receiving bank, we'll make sure to return it to your account.

You can also request to trace or recall your transfer from our side. However, we can't guarantee that trace or recall will be successful.
