According to their own website (Which currency balance will be deducted for spending?) this is the rule:
The card selects which currency to use in the following order:
1) The currency of the payment (e.g. if you are in the UK carrying out a transaction in Euro, we will deduct funds from your Euro balance)
2) Your base currency (BGN), which is determined by your home address
3) The next active currency with a sufficient balance
Funds are not taken from more than one currency balance at a time, so if is no single currency wallet
with sufficient funds, the transaction will be declined, even if there is enough money across your wallets in total.
What is not clear to me is the order in which the “next active currency” is determined.
Highest balance maybe ?
That’d be my hypothesis too, indeed.
Thank you for the link! I will send some PLN to my Revolut account and will give a try
I usually use a swiss credit card (UBS Mastercard) to transfer money to Revolut.
However, it does not seem to work anymore.
Anyone experiencing the same?
Worked for me yesterday (same card as you).

I couldn’t pay with the UBS Mastercard yesterday evening.
I have not received any messages.
