How to receive Bank Transfers from China?


#1

Good afternoon,

I created a Revolut account (UK) and ordered my card, however I was wondering how do I get bank transfers from family in China ?

Thank you!

what currency are they going to send? GBP?
how are they going to send it?

if they are sending you pre-exchanged GBP there is no benefit for you to use revolut instead of a fintech bank like Starling or Monzo. your life will be a lot easier.

if you have troubles with the proof of address you can try Monese instead.

if they are sending you GBP via a regular international bank transfer tap on your GBP balance and choose SWIFT to see the BIC, IBAN and Reference number they have to use

please be sure to lift your top-up limit first to avoid getting your money held
