How can I transfer funds using SEPA (bank transfer)?
A SEPA payment or bank transfer is a European payment method with which you can transfer funds from your bank account to your Bitvavo account. If you have a Dutch bank account, it will take 1 working day for your funds to arrive in your Bitvavo account. If you have an international bank account, this will take 2 working days. A SEPA payment or bank transfer is free of charge. Follow the below steps if you would like to transfer funds by using SEPA:
- Login to your Bitvavo account.
- Click “Transfer funds”.
- Enter the amount you want to deposit to your Bitvavo account and choose “SEPA transfer”.
- The bank account number, the name and description you should use for your SEPA or bank transfer are now displayed.
It is important to make sure to include the exact description shown to you, since the description will be different for each user and enables us to differentiate payments to different users. Include no additional text to your description. If you would like to have the funds transferred to your account immediately, you can use one of the other payment methods. *When filling in your IBAN at your local bank please do not use spaces.
Important: we do not support payments made through the SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications) system.
