Lack of being able to check limits isn't ideal


#21

I’m not privy to Revolut’s AML procedures but it would seem so yes. (And make sense).

Certainly in my case a query was raised when I introduced a new source of funds to top up my account.

Also, anecdotally, a lot of my friends who use Revolut say that they’ve had more trouble free usage with the new system, especially as regards top ups.

Ok, i would have tought stating the limit makes sence.

We will se come june-aug next year if there is a lot of new threads by panicing locked out people.

I for one am CERTAIN there is a limit, :r: just doesnt communicate it and that i think is very bad, on the other hand there isn’t much positive about :r: the last year so this just goes in line with that.

They have perhaps become to big.

Eh, what if you need to top up while you’re on holiday?


#24

Well you top up :). Probably best to use the same source of funds as previously. If you’re on holiday.


#25

That is a new source of funds as far as Revolut is concerned I imagine. You could top up £5000 and you don’t think they’d check the source of funds?


#26

Possibly. But you do know that the SOF request takes place after a successful top up. So you can continue to use the card until any checks are made.


#27

Actually I recall your funds being frozen as shown in literally any thread around the topic until valid SoF has been shown.

That’s not been my experience. I was able to continue to use my funds, under the new system. What was temporarily blocked was further top ups, until I had completed the checks.
