Can I send money to a loved one who does not have SoPay?

If you send money to a loved one who does not have a SoPay account, they will receive a link via SMS where they can create a SoPay account.

After they have created an account, the money you transferred to them will be put into their account.

In the first phase of this new service, your recipient can access their money at any of the SoPay agents which can be found in the apps "Find Agents & Merchants". In the following phase, the number of agents will keep increasing and an updated list can be found in the app under “Find the agents and merchants”.

SoPay is available for Android and iOS.
