Frequently asked questions

Do I have to choose between transferring euros and transferring another currency?

You can always choose to send euros, even if the recipient’s country has a different currency. The recipient’s bank will then convert the amount transferred. Bear in mind, however, that the recipient may be charged an additional fee for that. View the fees for all the information.

Do I need to specify an IBAN or BIC?

When transferring money to a SEPA country, you will only need an IBAN. When transferring money to a non-SEPA country, you will also need the BIC for the bank to which you are sending your transfer. Read more about IBAN and BIC.

The amount credited to the recipient’s account is lower than the amount I transferred. Why is this?

When this happens, the recipient’s bank has deducted fees from the amount you transferred. If you made the transfer in euros, please get in touch with us.

I want to enable international transfers, but can no longer find the option. Where has it gone?

International transfers are now always possible, without a waiting period. You no longer need to enable them first in your settings.

When will the money be in the recipient’s account?
