I am trying to send money to a family member in Lebanon using their IBAN which I always use to send them money. (used to use LLoyds bank and now I switched to Monzo).
The first time I sent them money, I used Trasnferwise (TW) directly, I set them up as a payee in TW and used the IBAN code, sent the money and it arrived fine.
Now I am trying to avoid having to send the money from Monzo to TW then from TW to my family member’s account.
So I was looking to use the Monzo TW integration in-app, however I can’t get access to the payees I already have in TW nor can I setup a new payee using IBAN. And when I try to setup a new payee I can’t even find the country in the list, although I was already able to find it in TW when I used their website.
My understanding is that all international payments are made using IBAN, so how come Monzo only allows for reference number & account number in international transfer and doesn’t allow me to choose Lebanon?
