FAQ

What about recurring transfers?

It’s important to note that for recurring transfers, all details will remain the same each time, except for the reference number, which is different for every transfer. In other words, once you’ve listed Blockport as a beneficiary in Revolut, you won’t need to enter our bank details again, you’ll only need to change the reference number.

For Blockport users who hold more than 2.500 Blockport Tokens, this fee gets halved, so your fees are only 0.15%.
