What is Current Pay?
Current Pay allows our members to send or request money from others on Current instantly. You can use it to find your friends, split the cost of dinner, or request money from a relative and you get a unique handle called a Current Tag to share your profile with others.
Now you get a handle that comes complete with a shareable QR code so you can easily find your friends and share your profile with them. By default the tag is set as your full name, but you can edit this on the profile tab in the app. From there, or when making a pay transaction, you can also find your QR code and share it with friends and family.
How does it work?
You can start paying or requesting money from friends and family by heading into the Money ($) tab within the app. Once you're there follow the steps below:
- Tap Pay or Request from the Money tab and you'll be able to search for who you're trying to find. You can search by their name, Current Tag, or by tapping the QR reader to scan their QR code.
- Once you find them, tap Pay or Request on their profile and you'll be able to type an amount or choose from the suggestions
- If your balance on Current is not enough to cover a Pay transaction, you'll be able to choose one of your external funding sources to make a deposit from. Once that deposit settles, your payment will be completed.
- After choosing an amount, tap Next and then you'll be able to review the transaction, add a note, and tap Confirm to complete it.
As a note, if you're a parent managing a teen account with us, your teen will only be searchable by you as a parent, any co-parent you add to your account, and the contacts in their phone book if they're also on Current.
