Allow sending money to the Philippines in local pesos (PHP)?


I would like to request the feature of being able to send money to a Philippines bank account, in the local currency (PHP).

Currently it is only allowed to send money to the Philippines in other currencies.

This feature already exists in Transferwise (and a few other money transfer services), so it is definitely doable.

I am hoping that Revolut will allow this! Thank you for considering :slight_smile:



so if you have gbp it does not allow you to exhnage the money?
and when you add bank account, the Philippines is not there?



It is there but you cannot choose their local currency. You can transfer to a slew of other currencies but not to pesos.



Yes, having PHP would be nice



Got to use transferwise for month to get some money to the Philippines on peso.
Don’t know why revolut can’t do it too.



Revolut fees for sending to PH bank are the same as in Transferwise. It is variable fee 0.4566% for exchange and fix fee 150peso per transfer when you send 50EUR to PH bank. But transfer by Revolut spend 2-4 work days and by Transferwise around 24 hours. And in Transferwise you have PH account, so you can change money to PHP when rate is good and let them on PHP account.



Revolut fees (= Transferwise fees) to PH bank account is still better than Azimo. For example when you send 50EUR to PH bank, so they do not get 2971peso, but 2807 by Revolut or Transferwise and 2726peso by Azimo. But by Azimo you can send cash to Cebuana or MLhuilier and to minor persons with school ID too.
