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 (if the number has 10 digits, please enter ‘20001’ at the beginning)
The recipient’s name must match the name on their bank account. Banks in Dominican Republic 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.
