Since Bunq decided to discontinue giropay as a means to top up the account, I would like to have the top-up limit for SOFORT doubled, please.
I could use giropay and SOFORT to top up my accounts by 250 € each within 24 hours, that’s a maximum of 500 bucks within 24 hours. With giropay gone, it’s just 250 €.
I know that giropay was and SOFORT still is not the only way to transfer funds to one’s Bunq account but I used giropay quite often in combination with my additional Sparkasse (savings bank) account because SOFORT sometimes had (technical) issues and the money was pending in nowhere land for up to 3 days. To be fair, I must add that this hasn’t happened to me when using Bunq, SOFORT and Sparkasse yet but with other financial providers and start-up banks.
Depositing cash can get expensive at the end of the Bunq billing period, SEPA transfers arrive next day—even when using real-time transfer because it seems that those German banks which support real-time transfer, make a transfer within seconds happen for sending money from a German bank account to another German bank account only.
What do you guys think of a 500 €-limit of SOFORT transfer every 24 hours? Thanks for your support and ideas.
