How can I transfer funds using Sofort?
Sofort is an European payment method which is often used in Austria, Belgium, Italy, Poland, Spain and Switzerland and that you can use to add funds to your Bitvavo account. Sofort comes with a service fee of 2,25%, but the transferred funds will be added to your Bitvavo account almost immediately. Follow the steps below if you would like to use Sofort:
- Login to your Bitvavo account.
- Click “Transfer funds”.
- Enter the amount you wish to add to your Bitvavo account and choose "Sofort".
- Click on "Pay".
Please note: Sofort applies a maximum amount of €10.000 per transaction. However, you can make multiple payments in a row.
Please note that Sofort is not a direct payment solution. Therefore, you could buy digital currencies straight after your payment but could only withdraw your bought digital currencies once your Sofort payment is settled, which might take a few business days. If your Sofort payment isn't setteld within a period of 7 business days, Bitvavo is forced to withdraw the pre-funded funds from your Bitvavo account.
If you are not able to use Sofort, please choose one of the other payment methods offered by Bitvavo.
