Can I import multiple beneficiaries at once?

Can I import multiple beneficiaries at once?

Importing beneficiaries in batch is a convenient feature when changing from a bank to another. Qonto allows you to import up to 300 beneficiaries at the same time.

☝️ Goot to know: You can also add a new beneficiary at any time, directly from the Transfers section of your Qonto web app.

How does it work?

  1. Download the following empty CSV file: qonto_import_beneficiaries_empty.csv. Here is an example of how to fill in the file: qonto_import_beneficiaries_with examples.csv
  2. Fill the CSV file with your beneficiaries, using Excel or any other spreadsheet editor. But don't modify the first row
  3. Go to the Transfers section of your Qonto app
  4. Click on Create transfer then on Upload new beneficiaries (CSV)
  5. Drag and drop your file, and check that the data you imported is correct before validating

What should I do if I get an error message?

You received an error message while uploading your file? Make sure that:

  • Your file includes these 4 columns, separated by a semicolon (;): NAME, IBAN, BIC, EMAIL
  • Only NAME and IBAN columns have to be filled with values. The values for BIC and EMAIL can remain blank, they are optional.
  • IBAN and BIC must comply to the IBAN and BIC formats.

✌️ Good to know: In case of error, the confirmation screen will highlight the beneficiaries for whom one of those parameters is wrong, so you get a chance to fix them.

Note: If some of your beneficiaries don't have a SEPA account then you can't import them (for now).
