Request Money From Friends

posted by N26 • Product • September 27, 2016

We created MoneyBeam to make it as quick and easy as possible to send money to your friends and contacts, but so far it’s been a one-way street. When your friends buy you lunch, you can pay them back instantly, but when you buy lunch…. Well, sometimes you have to remind them to pay you back, and that’s just awkward.

Not anymore.

If you can send money to your N26 contacts, you can now request money too. All you have to do is open the transaction menu from anywhere in the app, select Request and select your contact.

  • Request any amount up to €1000
  • Request money up to 20 times per day
  • Up to 3 requests to one person per day

Your request expires if the recipient doesn’t confirm in 7 days.

The same goes the opposite way. If you receive a request, you have 7 days to accept or reject it. You’ll both get notifications as soon as it happens, and pending requests will be shown at the top of your transactions list. It’s as simple as that.

Let us know in the comments what you’ve been meaning to request money for ;)
