Revolut launches in Australia! 🇦🇺

If it’s like the European version, I’d assume they would send you Euro via a user-to-user transfer and the balance (in Euro) would instantly appear in your Euro account rather than through the banking system.

You could then make the exchange to AUD in app.

I haven’t seen the Australian offering either, but wouldn’t assume it would be too much different.

good catch. i forgot about the most basic way to transfer if the other person uses :r: as well.

I’m toping up via ING and don’t see any fee, I’m also paying for a premium membership though

I have a UK Revolut converted some GBP to AUD and then attempted a transfer to an Australian bank account (the ATO direct credit account to pay my taxes), it’s been 10 business days and the money has not been received and the app won’t let me cancel the transfer. Please help!

I have just created by (Australian) account… Is there a PDS I can get? It’s now clear to me that I have to put in $25AUD first before I can even use the account, but what is the cost to/if I can even withdraw this directly without fees?

What is the cost for what, sorry?

All right Folks,
I am Australian, but I still don’t get it.
I would like to open a Revolut account that has “Australian identity”! Hence, could I top it up from my Australian debit card for free and then spend in AUD again for free. Just like (whether is it a true bank account or not - I don’t care) if I had a bank account from WP or ComB.
Is it the case or would I still have to straggle with SWIFT and international money transfer to a UK bank account to then pay from there when I purchase in Oz??
Please advise!

It’s all determined by your address.
The fee for card top up with a non-EEA card is waived if your card’s country code matches your country of residence.
However, you should be aware that Revolut does not activate new Australian customers currently:

Same in USA. Not able to understand why Revolut can’t offer auto debit feature, when they can provide us with local US bank account number :thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking:

Quando vai lançar a versão beta no Brasil? Estou aguardando faz tempo

It seems that this is not yet possible. A friend of mine has the same problem, having to send AUD from his Australian bank account to his Revolut account in the UK, and there’s a hefty bank charge each time.

They can’t top up by card without fees?
Which part charges the fee, Revolut or the card issuer?

I travel through Australia. Can I get new credit cart even if don’t have fixed address in Australia?

What is your permanent address? If Revolut offers the service there, yes you can.

You can then use the card everywhere, worldwide, if the brand is accepted and they don’t have any restriction regarding prepaid cards (like some hotels, car rental and the like). To use a card in a country, Revolut does not have to offer it’s services there to end customers.
