Revolut lands in the USA!

on a normal american bank, free for ACH/ABA (local) vs $50+ (swift).

so instead I collect at transferwise (free for my customers) and periodically do the swift transfer to revolut myself (USD4.33 currently) as the GBP 25 I pay to revolut for 0% FX is better for me than the % charged by TW.

I just received an announcement email from transferwise saying that starting August 5th it won’t be necessary to use “FBO” as beneficiary of US payments anymore, just our name or business.

come on Revolut.


They’ve not sent me this email :thought_balloon:

Come on though Revolut.

tbh they seem to imply it’s for business accounts

It’s for personal too, I reached out to them!

Priorities. The US is a huge market. Iceland on the other hand – not so much :slight_smile:

You can already use it if you have one :slight_smile: This is about being able to sign up for an account as a US resident, not being able to use your card issued abroad when you visit the country :wink:

It usually takes a couple of hours for transfers to get processed if you send money from a non-Revolut account.

Any news of Revolut about the USA launch, N26 of Germany has started on July 11th 2019. Unfortunately it will not be available for non resident alien and they have not planned to have different currencies accounts, so transfering money goes through TW. Really hope Revolut makes it possible to make use of the ACH transfer sytem even if you are a different citizen and living somewhere else on the globe and having a Revolut account.


Could someone clarify the topic: I do understand SWIFT charges are awful in the US banks to wire transfer USD to Revolut account. I don’t however understand how to make a payment order from the US bank, if Revolut doesn’t provide me the path?
I made an inquiry online and all I was told that details are in my profile, Accounts chapter.
Well, all I can see there is REVOGB21 and my IBAN - no intermediary bank in GB, nor in the US :frowning:
In my humble knowledge, there SHOULD be anything like this:
59: my IBAN
but there isn’t.
Who could tell me the full path if Revolute online support cannot?
Appreciate your input.

Hi, I used my new rainbow mastercard to pay for a bottle of water on gas station in the Vay
Area in California and my payment was refused. I used Apple Pay and the message I got is I need o swipe the card and put the pin. Do you know how I can solve this? Thank you, Nikitas

Hey. If you haven’t used the physical card in the past, it could be that they want you to use it before you can use Apple Pay at merchants such as gas station.

some months ago I tried using BARCUS33 as intermediary but they rejected it. BARCGB22 is the only valid intermediary.

Thank you for sharing @alejandro.mery.
From your experience: how much was cut by the correspondent? And how long it took to be credited to your R-account?

BARCGB22 didn’t charge anything and it was credited the next working day

Hey @AndreasK has America actually become a supported country now? You’ve added pricing etc and all the perks of each tier

Furthermore, do I require proof of address to change my account location from UK to the USA? :thinking:
