How to add a new top-up method?
Users should not be topping up with too many payment methods.
Tomorrow I have top up my account with 3 differents cards (mine, my father’s and my mother’s card) because I needed to have enough money to pay my rent. I know now it is a very bad solution!
Because now my account is blocked and I can’t use my revolut card.
-Users should not use 1 single payment method with multiple Revolut accounts: Account blocked: I top up two revolut card with the same prepaid card
-Virtual card top-up method unsupported: Top-up from virtual card questions
-Reasons why a top-up has been declined: Please close up and go away!!
-How to verify your top-up method: verifying the card
-Why debit cards used for topping up need to be verified: Verify debit card
Country/Bank-related Top-up Advice/Issues:
Account Top-up Limits:
- What the top-up limits are: Revolut, offshore policy and money laundering?
- Why verification for top-ups beyond the limit is necessary: Verify income source
Initial daily top-up limits for new users?
For newly added cards, most of our users will have a top-up limit between £1000-£3000 (or currency equivalent) per 24 hours. Some users may find they have a lower daily limit to begin with, however, your daily top-up limits will increase over time. We suggest:
Try and top-up your desired amount. If the amount is over your top-up allowance, you will receive a pop up message notifying you of the daily limit for that card and how much you can top-up today. If you wish to top-up more than your daily limit, you can use another debit or credit card, alternatively top-up via bank transfer. Unfortunately for security reasons we cannot provide the specific details around how your top-up limits are calculated.

- How yearly top-up limits can be increased: ID checks compared to High Street banks
-Verification for sole traders: Verification of source of funds for annual top-up limit
How do you verify your account?
Why it is required?
What documents are required:
Electronic identity verification:
In order to be able to use Revolut, you need to verify your account. This policy is in line with a UK banking regulation called 'Know your Customer’ (KYC) and is the process of a business verifying the identity of its clients. It is simply an anti-corruption and fraud measure.
However, some UK users won’t need to verify their identity, as we’ll do it electronically behind the scenes. UK users should try and top-up their Revolut account with a debit card first.
If we can’t verify your identity electronically, you will be prompted to do the following:
Go to the ‘More’ section of our app, tap ‘Profile’ and then ‘Verification & limits’. You will be need to take a photo of a valid government issued photo ID and a photo of your face. We may request a copy of your legal right to remain (e.g. visa, residence permit) if you provide a passport issued in a country outside of the European Union.

Using Revolut on multiple phones?
Different number whilst using Revolut abroad?
Yes but you need to keep in mind that if you log out and need to log back in, you’ll need to receive a SMS message (A numeric code that you need to enter into the Revolut app.).
As long as you don’t log out (Under normal circumstances you don’t log out unless you manually decide to do it, or uninstall the app.).
This might be a challenge as you won’t be able to receive the text message.
Some carriers (Three has
http://www.three.co.uk/feel-at-home.) have schemes where you can use your existing data plan and your existing number in countries outside the UK (e.g. US, Hong Kong, EU, …).
As long as you can receive inbound SMS messages (Revolut --Verification code–> Your phone.), that’ll be fine.
Biometrics (Finger-print login) disabled on Android?
Changing incorrectly-entered name
It should be possible to switch the order of your name if it was entered by accident. However, you cannot manually do this in the app in the ‘profile’ area.
Therefore, you should talk to Revolut’s customer support staff and they can help you accordingly. Type ‘live agent’ in the support to bypass RITA and talk to someone directly.
