Adding friends and paying to them

So three of us have a Revolut account and we sat together to test transferring/paying to each other.

We didn’t get very far because

  1. We couldn’t add each other via Contacts (for some reason we couldn’t scroll past names beginning with the letter ‘A’

  2. We couldn’t find anyone with the ‘people in the area with Revolut’ function

I seem to be experiencing a few other problems as well recently with transfers - is anyone else also having similar problems?

I need to request money from someone who is already a Revolut user, so sending an invitation to Revolut doesn’t seem to make sense. But how do I add a new contact to my Revolut-Friends?

Also, by the way, how can I create a new post from scratch without having to open another thread to reply to first?
