Due to some kind of (possibly EU) regulations, 3rd party top-ups are not allowed.
What confuses me is this; when Revolut came out, this was allowed. I even asked support at the time if my company can just transfer my salary straight to Revolut without even having the need for a local bank account.
Few months after launch this was blocked and message started popping up, that 3rd party top-ups are no longer allowed.
I also have a local prepaid Visa card (in Slovenia) and they allow 3rd party top-ups, so I am quite sure, that the “regulations” don’t exactly ban this, but possibly create a lot of hassle or paperwork.
I think Revolut should look into this and re-introduce this option, because I think there are people out there (including me), that would consider using Revolut as primary payment source.
I do realize that there are considerable money laundering issues here, that need to be overcomed, but hey. You guys figure out everything, I am sure you could find a way for this to work.
