Happy Sunday everyone! 🌻
Let us tell you a little story about Ana. 👩🏼 Ana is a bunqer who loves to go out for dinner with friends once in a while. After some good food and wine, there comes a time the bill has to be split. But nobody wants to ruin the vibe of such a pleasant evening by talking about money, so her friend Christian takes initiative and pays the bill, hoping that tomorrow everybody will pay their part.
Only it seems like Christian hasn't opened his bunq account, yet 😉 How many times have you been in a similar situation as Ana, when you want to easily send some money to your friend, but they don’t have a bunq account and they didn’t provide you their IBAN either?
At bunq you can send money without any complications such as asking for an IBAN number, waiting for a response, or manually copying the IBAN into your banking environment. You can easily send the amount with bunq.to link directly to their phone number or email address and give them the freedom to decide on which bank account they want to receive it.
What is bunq.to?
It’s a feature you can use to send money to phone numbers or email addresses that aren't linked to a bunq account. So you can easily send money to any of your contacts! 🙌
After sending the bunq.to payment, the receiver will either receive an email or a SMS which contains a link that leads to the bunq.to webpage. On this webpage the receiver can enter their IBAN, to which the money will be sent as a regular SEPA transfer.
A bunq.to payment expires after 5 days, if the recipient does not claim the payment. The money will then return to your bunq bank account and we’ll let you know with a notification.
It’s also good to know that there is a limit of €50,000 total per day, you can check out this topic for more information.
How does this look in the app?
Take a look at the video below to check how it looks in the app:
And this is what it looks like for the receiver:
Invite your friends to join, and get the most of bunq together. 🌈
