We recently announced the arrival of online payment acceptance to Revolut Business. We’re simplifying online payments to make managing your business easier. And Revolut Business customers in the UK can accept payments from customers around the world easily and quickly via payment requests.

Introducing easy payment requests

Payment requests are perfect for business owners who need to process one-off payments without setting up an online store or sharing account details. With payment requests, you can send payment links to customers in seconds via email or text message – accepting payments from anyone, anywhere keeping both you and your customers’ information protected at all times.

Just take these simple steps: create a payment link > choose the currency, the amount and a description > then share it with your customer.

Keep more of what you earn
Our competitive pricing model offers low markups on consumer card acceptance. Depending on your selected plan, you’ll get an allowance of free UK and EEA consumer card payment acceptance every month, with no extra fees. See our card payment fees here.

Do business like a local
You’ll also save on currency conversions with your Revolut Business account – accept payments in over 25 currencies, so that you can welcome even more customers in more regions, without unnecessary fees or additional exchanges. You can keep settled funds in the same currency, or convert them into a currency of your choice at the interbank rate and save on foreign exchange.

Access your funds quickly
Now, you can keep all of your business transactions in one place, no transferring funds to other institutions. Revolut Business allows you to accept, settle and store payments within a single account – without the need to juggle multiple logins and apps. Because your customers are transacting within the same system as your business account, payments are settled next-day, giving you quick access to your funds.

Get started

First, you’ll need to apply for a Merchant Account – an account that sits within your Revolut Business account and provides you with access to more methods of payment acceptance. You can do this from your Revolut Business account:

  • If you haven’t already, sign up for a Revolut Business account. You can do this in just a few minutes here.
  • Log in to your Revolut Business account, and navigate to Payments, then 'Payment Requests' and look for the 'get started' button. From here, you can begin your Merchant Account application.
  • Once you submit your application, the Revolut Business team will review it as soon as possible and be in touch with you regarding the outcome and next steps.
  • When you're approved for your Merchant Account, you’ll be able to create your first payment requests in the Merchant tab of your Revolut Business app.

Once you’ve activated your Merchant Account, you’ll be able to add our plugin or API to your website, or create payment requests – and get even more from your business account.
