Bizum changes its conditions of use as of today, with new conditions of use that reduce to less than half the maximum number of transactions received: they go from 150 to 60 for all the banks adhered to Bizum.
You can only receive 60 Bizum operations 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, a total of 160 Bizum could be received on a monthly basis, that is, they could send you money 150 times a month through the app.
You can continue sending Bizum without limit, but only receive 60 per month
From today, this number of operations is reduced to 60, less than half than before. It is important to note that this change only influences the operations received, not in the Bizum that you can send. These continue without limits, so you can send money without regard, taking into account that the recipients can only receive money 60 times a month.
