As with the application they use on their smartphones, Revolut customers are able, with this new tool, to add money to their account via bank transfer, debit or credit card or Apple Pay (where the service is available, with the browser Safari).
“Access to accounts through the browser has been a requirement for our customers for a long time, so we are very pleased to have created a web app safe and convenient that everyone can use if they want or need it. Our customers can access their money wherever they are, at any time, even if they do not have their mobile phone or card with them, or simply if they prefer another method of access than the application ”, says the CEO and founder of Revolut.
