  5. You should now be able to send your transfer!



No, I don’t have the app! - No worries, here’s a quick guide:


  1. Do you have an online account? If yes, go to step 2. If not, follow the below steps:
  2. Download PostePay/Bancoposta App from Apple store or Play Store
  3. Follow the instructions in the Bancoposta app and link your PostePay card
    • If you can’t link your PostePay card in the Bancoposta App then you can either:
      • Go to the nearest post office with a valid ID card and your codice fiscale. To find your nearest post office, visit the website
      • Go to cash machine and select 'Sicurezza internet' →  "Servizi" → "Opzioni" in order to link your mobile number to your card
