How can I send a payment?Sending payments with your Kroo account is simple. All you need is the bank details of the person you're looking to pay. To send a payment, follow the steps below:
Tap the ‘Kroo’ tab or 'Send ↗' from the 'Home' page.
Select the payee under ‘People’ or create a new contact.
Enter the amount.
Confirm the name matches (if it doesn't - a warning message will appear).
Follow the in-app prompts to complete your payment.
Transfers made by Faster Payment are usually made instantly, but please note that it may take up to 2 hours to complete.
Please note: We may review a payment request and ask for further information before we process your payment. We'll also request additional information if your payment request exceeds £10,000.
If you'd like us to cancel a payment in review, please get in touch with our Customer Support team.
I've made an error when sending a payment, what can I do?
Payment sent to the wrong account or if you've sent an incorrect amount
If the recipient is an existing payee and you're able to contact them - we'd recommend asking them to return the funds; this is usually the easiest and most efficient way to retrieve the funds.
However, if you don’t know the recipient or you're unable to contact them, please get in touch with our Customer Support team.
If you make a genuine mistake when sending a payment, we’ll attempt to recover the funds on your behalf.
Why haven’t I received my bank transfer?
We use the Faster Payments network to send and receive payments. This means that payments sent from most UK banks should arrive in your account instantly, but can take up to 2 hours.
If you've been sent a payment and it's been longer than 2 hours, we'd recommend contacting the sender or the sending bank so they can trace the payment for you.
If we can’t accept the payment, we’ll return the payment to the sender's bank account. It can take up to 5 working days for the payment to return to that account.
Why do I see a message saying my Kroo account details can’t be checked?
You may see a message stating your Kroo account details can’t be checked when transferring money, this is because of a service called Confirmation of Payee (CoP).
CoP will make it easier to check account and reference details when you transfer money or set up a standing order - this helps ensure payments aren’t sent to the wrong account by mistake.
When will Kroo offer Confirmation of Payee?
We’re working hard to implement this shortly - we'll keep you updated and let you know as soon as this is available.
Please feel free to speak to us via in-app chat or send us an email at email@example.com if you have any further questions.
Can I send a CHAPS payment?
Please contact our Customer Support team if you'd like to send a CHAPS payment.
CHAPS payments guarantee your funds arrive on the same day the payment is processed.
CHAPS payments can be made for £1,000,000 and above.
CHAPS payments incur a charge of £20.
Can I use my account for international payments?
Sending international payments isn't currently supported - but we hope to introduce this in the future.
We also don’t support receiving payments that originate from outside the UK.
Does Kroo use an intermediary bank?
An intermediary bank (also known as an agency bank) carries out services on behalf of another institution. At Kroo, we use ClearBank as our payment provider to receive and send money transfers. ClearBank also provides our sort code.
The timescales shown above apply when everything is working smoothly. Like any other bank, Kroo cannot guarantee that payments systems will always be functioning. There can be times when planned maintenance needs to take place, in which case we will give you notice in advance. There may be other times when there are unforeseen outages, and these may be beyond Kroo’s control.
Individual payments can also be held up by financial crime checks that Kroo and other banks are required by law to undertake. We always try to ensure that these do not hold up payments for longer than necessary.
