Freeze currency


#1

One thing I’d like to avoid is saving in one currency and having transactions in another take some money if the funds aren’t available.

Would it be possible for a feature where you can stop certain currencies being used as a back up finding source?

In this instance I mean I have JPY stored on my revolut JPY wallet. But a transaction goes through on GBP but I didn’t have enough GBP to fund it. If I had a setting in JPY which made it immune from being a backup wallet as a source of funding, I can save and not worry that a Spotify subscription didn’t take a chunk of my saving.

And his feature could be toggled like the security features for the card, just with the specific wallet.

It’s already available:

  • click the small icon in the top left corner, next to the currency list (on the blue background)
  • swipe the chosen currency left (not the main one for the account though)
  • choose “Deactivate”

You can activate/deactivate again chosen accounts any time

I am aware of this. But it’s impractical and isn’t designed to serve the purpose or method. But worth noting.


#4

Is it possible to deactivate a currency account with a balance inside it?


#5

Yes, I’ve tried it. You can deactivate any currency account (with or without funds on it), but not your main currency.
