How do I set up a transfer?
You can arrange a direct to bank transfer in a few simple steps:
Enter your recipient’s details
- Full name
- Bank name
- Account number (11 digits)
The recipient’s name must match the name on their bank account. Banks in Mexico won’t check the account number against the bank account, so please make sure all details are 100% accurate before setting up a money transfer.
Pay for your transfer
Payment methods include:
- Debit/credit card (maximum amount 12,000 GBP/13,500 EUR)
- Bank transfer via online banking
- SOFORT if you’re sending from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy or Netherlands
Please note that you can only use your own card to pay. If you’re using online banking to pay for your transfer, always send money from an account in your name and remember to include the reference number.
What is a CLABE?
A CLABE (Clave Bancaria Estandarizada) is an 18 digit number used to identify Mexican bank accounts. Account holders must provide this number for all domestic bank transfers.
The 18 digits represent the following information:
7-17: account number
18: check digit
To send money with Azimo, we need just the 11 digit account number (7-17).
What are the transfer limits?
For Bancoppel, BBVA Bancomer, Chedraui and BANCO AUTOFIN customers:
Minimum amount: 10 GBP (or equivalent in sending currency)\
Maximum amount: 800 GBP (or equivalent in sending currency)
Accumulated monthly limit:
BBVA Bancomer: 15,000 USD
Chedraul: 5,000 USD
If you need to send higher amounts to Mexico, we may request additional details from you to process the transfer. This is a standard security check to ensure the safety of all money transfers.
How long until my transfer is delivered?
Once we’ve received your payment, we will immediately process your transfer and notify you via email and push notification.
Most transfers are delivered on the same day. Note, it can sometimes take a few hours for the money to appear in your recipient’s bank account.
