Revolut users can now Top-Up with their Number26 Mastercard

Almost a month ago, I was trying to top up my Revolut account with my Number26 debit card. The process could not be completed, because Revolut thought it would be a credit card and not a debit card.

They have then claimed to have forwarded this to their payment processor, but after resolving my ticket, it still didn’t work.

Today I was trying again, and I am happy to have good news to report: You can now use your Number26 Mastercard to top up your Revolut card. Here is the proof:

Be careful

Revolut thinks, this card is issued in USD. Therefore, when topping up with your Number26 card, it will ask you if you really would like to top-up in EUR and you should select USD to avoid fees. Tap “Yes, Continue”. Since your Number26 does not charge extra on foreign currency transactions, you won’t have to pay a fee, but there is still uncertainty in the exchange rate, which might be either in your favor, or—more likely—to your disadvantage.

Thank you Revolut for enabling Number26 Mastercard top-ups!
