You can make transfers in Euro to any person or organization with a bank account that supports SEPA transfers right from the “Payments” tab in your Vivid app.
If the recipient has a Vivid account, you can send them money instantly using their phone number or scanning their QR code. If the recipient doesn’t have one, you’ll need to provide their account’s IBAN and full name or scan their QR code to proceed with it.
As your Vivid account may have several pockets, any transfer that you perform amongst them is also instant. Just drag and drop one pocket to another and choose the amount of the transfer.
Do you need to add a note for the recipient?
Use the “Purpose” field before confirming the transfer and type away.
How long do incoming and outgoing transfers take?
Incoming and outgoing SEPA transfers may take up to 1 business day to appear on your account. Depending on the time the transfer was initiated, this time frame may vary (check here how) and the funds can reach your account within 2 business days. If you’re expecting an incoming SWIFT transfer, it can take up to 5 business days to reach your account.
