SEQR money transfers will initially be free of charge. The amount to be transferred appears in the currency of the recipient and the money is credited to the recipient account instantly.
The option of transferring money and buying things from other countries is now an standard feature of the SEQR app and is available to all users in Europe from today. This functionality will be launched for users in the US shortly.
