Transfers

Just like sending a WhatsApp message, payments to mobile contacts let you send money to other Nomo users using just their mobile number.

If the recipient sets their account to ‘visible’ you don’t need to enter their number. Once you’ve given permission for Nomo to access your contacts, their name will appear and you can simply tap their name and send money in seconds.

Payments to mobile contacts are perfect for when you want to send money to someone quickly and cheaply, without the hassle of entering all of their bank details. They’re fee-free no matter the locations of the sender and the recipient.

In order to appear as visible to other Nomo users that have your mobile number saved in their phonebook, you need to enable this in your account settings. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Head to your account settings
  2. Click on Privacy and security
  3. Select Make myself visible to my friends on Nomo

You can also make yourself visible by heading to the Pay a mobile contact section in the Pay & transfer tab in the Nomo app, and following the on-screen instructions.

The two methods detailed above can also be used to make yourself invisible to other Nomo users – simply unselect the option to make yourself visible. Please note that a Nomo user won’t be able to receive payments from a mobile contact if they are set to invisible.

Step 1: Head to the Pay & transfer tab.

Step 2: Choose Pay a mobile contact.

Step 3: Enter the recipient’s mobile number, or select their name from the list of your contacts that have a Nomo account. For this, you will need to give Nomo access to your contacts, and the recipient will need to make their Nomo account ‘visible’ in their account settings.

Step 4: Enter the amount you want to send, and an optional reference for the payment.

Step 5: Confirm the transfer.

Recipients that you add on your GBP (£) Current Account are stored in the app. When trying to transfer money, you’ll see a list of your existing recipients. You can select the recipient you wish to send money to from this list. At the moment, you cannot edit or delete a recipient but we’re planning to make this possible in the future.

You can’t store recipient details on your USD ($) Current Account so you’ll need to add a recipient each time you make a transfer.
