General tips

Use PrivatBank’s services to send or receive a money transfer. PrivatBank has one of the lowest rates for sending transfers.

Find out what restrictions apply when sending and paying transfers. For example, citizens of Ukraine can send and receive a money transfer without opening an account or card.

Analyze money transfer options. For example, if the recipient and the sender have cards (accounts), it is more convenient to use a transfer from card to card or a SWIFT payment, since the tariffs for these types of transfers are the most favorable. If you need to urgently send money, then we recommend using one of the money transfer systems.

Make transfers to Visa or Mastercard. For example, if the person to whom you want to send money has a Visa or Mastercard payment card from any bank in the world, you can easily and quickly make a transfer just knowing the 16-digit card number of the recipient. You can send money from card to card on your own in Privat24 Internet Banking.
