We use revolut with a lot of my colleagues here in bulgaria, mainly to exchange money between ourselves, but we have tested a few ATMs, POS terminals etc. and can confirm all of the findings so far.
We do have one bit of information for you @AndreasK.
One of my colleagues, after being rejected at a bank ATM (the “invalid card number error agian”) went in the bank itself to ask them some questions. They said that it was BORIKA’s fault - that’s a tech company powering a lot of the payment infrastructure here in Bulgaria. After that he send an email to them asking about it, and borika’s answer was that it was an issue with the “card issuer’s bank” e.g. revolut and they had some technical stuff that needed to be implemented.
It might well be that borkia is playing dumb and passing on the blame but you guys can at least try to contact their technical team and sort out the issues. Revolut is starting to get traction here (mainly due to the traveling youth) here in BG and the inability to use it in more than half of the places is really unfortunate.
Also, when are we going to have some Bulgarian Lev accounts?
