Whether you're looking to send a one-off payment or you want to send money abroad to family in Poland regularly, it doesn't matter. You'll need a service that's entirely transparent and fee-friendly. There’s no need for you to spend more than you actually should. That’s why it’s important to pay close attention to the conversion rate offered by the service provider you choose, as well as the fee for the currency conversion.
In this part of our Money Transfer series, we give you a step-by-step guide on how to send a transfer to Poland quickly and inexpensively.
Send money to Poland
Sending money to Poland in Polish zloty (PLN) has never been easier. You can do it straight from your Monese app with just a few taps, no matter where you are. If you prefer to check the live rates first, you can do so right on your Monese app under the Pay section (tap: Send money globally).
To send the transfer, follow these four simple steps:
Step 1: Tap the Pay section in the app.
Step 2: Choose a person or company from your contacts list you want to send money to or create a new payee (you’ll need their full name along with their IBAN and BIC number, and residential address).
Step 3: Enter the amount you want to transfer (you’ll see the conversion screen here).
Step 4: Confirm your payment.
The transfer may be cheaper in comparison to traditional banks and also faster! Usually, the recipient should receive the money the following day; however, bear in mind that it can also depend on the receiving bank (along with possible security checks) and may take up to a few days.
Make the most of Monese

- When you’re in Poland, you can easily pay with your smartphone with both Apple Pay and Google Pay whenever you see the contactless symbol.
- You can also create a virtual card when shopping in Poland for an extra level of security. The virtual card works with Apple Pay and Google Pay too!
