What types of transfers can I use to send GBP?
There are three different transfer types: transfers to a Revolut customer, card transfers, and bank transfers.
Note that sending money to cards is only available to selected users at the moment. Stay tuned!
Who can I send GBP to?
You can send GBP to a beneficiary who has a bank account from the United Kingdom, Guernsey, including Isle of Man British Indian Ocean Territory, and Jersey. You can also send GBP to beneficiaries outside the UK at a higher fee.
What information do I need about my beneficiary?
To make a transfer to any Revolut customer, you’ll need their phone number or username.
To make an international bank transfer, you’ll typically need the beneficiary’s full name, sort code, and bank account number. The sort code is 6 digits. The bank account number is 8 digits.
To send money to a card, all you need is the card number and the cardholder’s full name.
How much can I send?
For most currencies, there are no transfer amount limits. Certain currencies might have limits set by our payments partners, which we’re unable to disclose due to compliance reasons.
If you’re making a transfer to a card, transfers to Visa cards are limited to $2,500 (or currency equivalent) per transaction while transfers to Mastercard cards are limited to $5,000 (or currency equivalent) per transaction.
Please be aware that the way we process bank transfers can change depending on the amount. This means that arrival times, intermediary fees charged by other banks and descriptions your beneficiary might see on their statement can differ. We provide more information on this when you make a transfer in the app.
How long does it usually take for the money to arrive?
GBP transfers to a UK bank account typically take a few seconds, but can take up to three days if the beneficiary bank doesn’t use Faster Payments.
Transfers to cards typically take a few minutes but can take up to 30 minutes.
