They have just launched in Australia yesterday (not the en-AU in the URL).

 

Here is a LinkedIn post and here is an article on MSM.

 

 

They haven't really launched. It's still the same stupid queue system, just that it pretends to move now.

 

They've also updated the footer of their website to clarify they aren't a bank and cannot conduct banking activities.

I wouldn't go that far - they definitely have legitimate operations in Europe, they're actually quite big. But they're really half-assing their expansion - in what world is it sane to deposit any of your money with anyone other than an ADI with appropriate regulation, oversight and guarantees?

 

Interesting note, their website says they operate in Australia with the permission of ASIC, but that can't be right - ASIC only regulates financial advisory services (and Revolut has no AFSL, so that can't be it), actual cash is regulated by APRA, and Revolut is not on any APRA register. Basically, it's illegal.

Isn't this how most crypto exchanges work?

Yes, I know they are large, but again, even large crypto exchanges exist.

I think I signed up soon after they announced it here. I’d forgotten about it, but apparently I’m still in 5th place. I think the big banks here will be onto open banking before anything happens with Revolut.

I notice today that there are now three less people ahead of me ... did they just give up?  Or is this happening?

Two less people for me. Down to 4471 now instead of the original 4473.

Anyone else had their position in the queue no longer show in the app?
I read it as if they’ve cancelled their plans but (hopefully) I’m wrong.


Edit: there is still a bump me up the queue button at the bottom.

The waitlist disappeared for me after one of the recent app updates, and before that it seemed to be dropping by a person every day or so. I'm not feeling optimistic that the launch is going to happen any time soon, but who knows...?

Ok, so I recently made the top of the list (Australia, not NZ). Revolut accounts are accessed entirely in the app (no web access).  No phone support. Money is held in trust in Revolut's accounts with ANZ, and can only be loaded in there by transferring in using Apple Pay, Credit Card, or Debit Card (no Google Pay or Samsung Pay support) - you don't get any other account details for direct depositing cash, so it CANNOT be used as your daily driver account. Despite claims they offer Fx at the mid-market rate, they do not - the rate is inferior to the mid-market rate by about $0.003 as at this moment.
