Bank Transfer Beneficiary Details

Can you add an “description” or “name” field to the “add a new beneficiary” tool in Payments -> Bank Transfer?

At the moment, if you add more than one bank account for the same person (e.g. yourself), it is difficult to distinguish between the accounts. The app only shows the name of the beneficiary, the account number and the sort code, but it’s difficult to remember which bank account is represented simply from the account number or sort code/ BIC/SWIFT.

So, instead of just showing:
John Smith - GBP
Account number: 12345678
Sort code: 123456

The app could show:
John Smith - GBP
[my description]
Account number: 12345678
Sort code: 123456

Where [my description] could be, e.g., “Santander Bank”, “personal account”, “business account”, “savings account”, etc.

Thanks!

Hi,

Notice there is no response from anyone and I really need this option as I find it extremely difficult to know which account is which.

Thanks,

Mark

That’s the Idea that I came up with today and was wondering if anyone else thought about it, so I can support it.
Basically, I have some recipients that have few accounts, It would be extremely helpful if there was a field added where you can put your own description of the transfer recipient. At this moment I have to look for ‘John Smith’ who has 3 accounts and need to verify that the last 4 digits are actually of the account that I want to send money to.
If only I can also see that it is ‘John Smith - own typed description’ that would be awesome.

Did revolut change its address?? I was trying to perform SWIFT transfer but the bank address seems to be different than that I used before.
