Have anyone tried topping up with Google Pay? I just did and from what I can see it’s 0 fees with a Swiss VISA card in CHF - am I missing something?
I use simple bank transfer via from UBS CHF account. There are no fees to my knowledge, but I use a CHF revolut account, so there is no FX involved.
the BEN fees are now applied at UBS, 5CHF
Just topped up with G Pay (underlying UBS credit card) and it worked without fees. Only topped up with a small amount…
For me it was not free. Transferred 450 CHF from UBS and only 445 CHF have arrived at the Revolut Account
I got very excited because I topped up 10CHF when I registered using Google Pay without any fees. Sadly now that I try to top up for the second time I do get fees. Maybe it’s just Revolut eating up the fees for the first top up ? Could you confirm if you’re in the same situation ? Thanks !
Make sure that you check your card statement after topping-up through Google Pay / Apple Pay - I have seen cases when the DCC code of the merchant was different for Google Pay than topping-up directly with the card, and the bank considered it a cash advance.
I top up 20CHF with Google Pay (mastercard cumulus) without fee.
The same for me.
I used to top up from UBS to Revolut in CHF, with all costs to beneficiary. It used to be free.
For the first time 5 CHF in the transfer were charged. I think it comes from UBS but not 100% sure.
Anyone could say what has changed or any alternatives?
Google Pay with MC without any fees as well, tested this morning. That’s good !
Why you folks have Google Pay in Switzerland?!? Did they (finally) start with a Beta-Porgram? (If it’s invitation-based… “thanks for the invitation”
Because we don’t have any CH IBAN
Joke apart I have no idea why, just tried this morning and that’s it…And I don’t know anything about any Beta-program nor invitation sorry.
I have GPay in the top up option for a while but wasn’t allowed to use it since I tried again today.
lets see how fast swiss banks will react to this and add ‘foreign payment’ fees
meanwhile it’s great to have this option
what you mean with “I have GPay in the top up option”
thank you I didn’t see that.
No… I ment: how do you have Google Pay available in Switzerland (on your Phones!!) - is google pay finally available in CH? (not talking about the topup-option in revolut)
I’ll let you have a look there: https://support.google.com/pay/answer/9023773?hl=en
It seems GPay is available in CH only for online and in-app purchases, no stores…
