You can only receive 60 Bizum transactions per month
Today, June 15, the new conditions of use of Bizum come into force. There is only one change in the new policies, although it is quite relevant. To date, 160 Bizum in total can be received monthly, that is, they can send you money 150 times a month through the app.
You can continue to send Bizum without limit, but only receive 60 per month
Since today, this number of operations is reduced to 60, less than half than before. It is important to note that this change only affects the transactions received, not in the Bizum that you can send. These continue without limits, so you can send money without regard, taking into account that recipients can only receive money 60 times per month.
The new conditions affect all banks that operate with Bizum and, as detailed by Bizum itself, this is how the new limits now remain after the arrival of the new conditions of use.
