Hi mollycase, at this moment in time, TransferWise doesn’t accept the direct personal IBAN and BIC/SWIFT code that Revolut issues you if you accept their personal Euro account. There are two workarounds:
a) transfer a small amount of Eur from TransferWise to a friend’s Euro account at a normal bank, and include your Revolut Ref number in the payment reference field, to see if the TransferWise transfer appears to come from your own name and the payment reference is transmitted, or if comes from “TransferWise” and/or is missing the payment reference. If the transfer is in your own name and has the payment reference, then you can transfer your Euro to Revolut’s general Euro account at Lloyds Bank. Otherwise, you have to use the second method;
b) With this method, you have to use an intermediary institution. The free option is PaySera. If you open an account with them and get identified, you get a personal Euro IBAN. You can then transfer your money from TransferWise to your own account at PaySera (this works, I’ve done it). From PaySera you can transfer to your personal Euro IBAN at Reolut (this also works, I did it yesterday). It may seem like a big hoop, but actually the transfer from TransferWise to PaySera happens in a matter of a couple of hours, and from PaySera to Revolut, in about an hour (this was my experience).
