Bizum support

For those who don’t know, Bizum is an instant payment system organized by a consortium of Spanish banks.

It uses phone numbers to route payments, or for some organizations there is a short numerical code.
It’s ubiquitous. One might use it to split a bill with friends, buy in some shops, donate to charities of tip a street performer.I can’t understate how much it’s a part of daily life.

(on a sidenote it’s likely a reason many Spanish banks charge for SEPA instants because it would undercut Bizum)

Now, I don’t know how much implementation would cost, but I’m pretty sure there is a good business case for it. Since Revolut now has a legal entity in Spain, it should be able to join.
According to this article, Spain figures as one of major markets for Revolut.

I’m sure relevant people in Revolut know about it already, but if they don’t have anyone who actually lives in Spain they might not be aware how much essential it is for Revolut being anyone’s primary bank.

This is the second most important feature for adoption in Spain after spanish IBAN, everyone uses it, even if you don’t use it to send payments, you will need it to receive them because everyone uses it to share expenses. It’s one of the last remaining reasons why I can’t ditch my old bank
