I am a Revolut newcomer and I am considering exchanging Brazilian Reais (BRL) via Revolut instead of some exchange office. I think bank transfer is out of the question because of the insane taxes that are imposed by Brazilian banks, so I am wondering what will happen if I use a Brazilian card to top up.
A card issued in Brazil (BRL) should transfer money to my Revolut account such that I can then use that money in Sweden (SEK). Revolut says this: “If you top up with a card that was not issued within the European Economic Area (a US-issued card for example) or with a commercial card, we may charge you a small fee to cover our costs.”, which makes me wonder what that fee really is.
Does anyone have experience using a non-EEA card (with a currency not included in GBP, EUR, USD, PLN, DKK, SEK, NOK, RON, and CHF) to top up their Revolut card? What was the fee? Does it even work?
I am grateful for any kind answers
