SWITZERLAND - Top-up --> working method = TW, and direct to shared Rev account


#203

I toped up today with no fee. TW card is still shown as a GBP card.


#204

This fees shouldn’t happen…
Was the app showing you the fees while typing the amount?

The TW cards were issued in the GB by a German company (Wirecard)
If you used the same card to top-up without fees, how the card issue place could change?


#205

I have done my second top up today with transferwise card with no fee. Don’t forget to choose “Yes Continue” if asked if you want to pay in CHF, because the card is in GBP.

Transferwise is also really quick. Yesterday evening I make a Bank transfer and today morning at 9am I had the money on transferwise.


#206

CH IBAN available from today! Check your account details!!! Time tonsay goodbye to transwerwise (or keep it for another 200 of free atm limit)


#207

Hello, can anyone confirm that anyone can transfer money to this account or only account owner, because this is pooled account?


#208

Yes - as it is a pooled acount, one has to mention the ref-number (without, the same problems with the Lloyds-Pooled-Account apply)…

But finally a topup-method.

But as I said in the other thread:

(now i understand why it took so long… :r went to the second “2big2fail”-bank that has no interest in competition… my bet: raiffeisen or one of the smallers would have LOVED a partnership with personal CH-IBAN :wink:

There’s still some lost trust to make up. Because there was no announcement YET AGAIN. They change the system all the time and never tell their customers… Seriously!? That’s like having an account with UBS!


#209

Just tried a Top-up with the new credentials. Will report success/failure as soon the bank processes payments (merry x-mas) again on 27th…

Issue:
Payments IN Switzerland require a full address of the recipient.
As it is stated in the app the recipient is revolut, i had to search their address on the homepage so I could fill out the banks form… (that’s also something revolut should tell the clients: the full recipient-address)

Well, we’ll see :slight_smile:


#210

Payments do only need the name of recipient, the address was only needed in the past.
Not all banks did change their payment forms after the change.

As an example it works without address with UBS.


#211

Swiss IBAN is now available!
Danke Revolut :pray:t2:


#212

I got my CHF on Revolut via Transferwise Borderless Card payment. Can I return the CHF to my bank Swiss bank for free? When I try to set the CHF account up it gives an error - try later.


#213

thanks for the TW idea… i using it now for month…
sometimes the money is available in 2-3 hours.
works really great so far.

setting up the account and stuff is a little bit annoying, but it worth the effort


#214

In several threads it’s been said transfer from Revolut to CH is a SWIFT-Payment… I’d say nope…

But if need be, you can still topup the TW Borderless-Account via Revolut-Card, then send the money via TW to your bank in CH… There’s a loss, too - but still less than SWIFT…


#215

Hi

I have just received a withdrawal from Revolut (50 CHF). In my Raiffeisen E-banking I’ve got the following message: “Spesenoption: zu Lasten Auftraggeber (OUR)”. No fee was charged, I received the full amount.

Payments IN Switzerland require a full address of the recipient.
As it is stated in the app the recipient is revolut, i had to search their address on the homepage so I could fill out the banks form… (that’s also something revolut should tell the clients: the full recipient-address)

To add to the address issue: you can just use the bank’s postal code: 8070 Zürich.
I tested it and it worked


#217

Probably one reason why they stated the full Address :smile:


#218

then just use the bank’s full address.
As I already wrote only the recipient’s name is needed for the transfer but banks didn’t change their form validations ¯\(ツ)


#219

Well I entered Revolut’s Address as it can be found no the homepage (i saved the payment as template, so I don’t have to search again)…

And yeah, Raiffeisen still has the fields mandatory, remember my now-gone postfinance, Name was sufficient…


#220

now I have CH IBAN, how can I pass the reference? there is no way to insert reference in postfinance for domestic transfer!


#221

maybe notification lines?
