This is a short guide to using Stellar and Tempo to payout all over the world. You can use Lumens (XLM), EURTs, USD, BTC, ETH, to send a payment to anywhere served by TEMPO.
Tempo supports payout in all EUROZONE countries to any bank account, you can pick up cash from our store in Paris and in over 40 countries worldwide: https://tempo.eu.com/en/send-money
For example if you are planning a trip to Paris you could put a limit order on the Stellar EURT exchange and get an awesome “mid-point” exchange rate. If you were backpacking around the world you could send yourself cash to pickup at multiple locations.
Currently this is done in 3 easy steps. It will be even simpler when Stellar wallets fully support the TEMPO's stellar federation. Although this is new a process, your funds are safe and secure and are protected by TEMPO and the strength of the Stellar blockchain.
Step 1 is to register with Tempo
Due to recent terrorism in France a Passport or EU ID is required to register with TEMPO. It generally takes a couple of hours during EU working hours. We may ask additional proof of residence if you do many large value transfers. Your data is stored securely and never leaves the EU - servers are “PCI” certified and audited.
Step 2 Create your transfer:
Depending on the country and type of transfer (cash pickup vs account payout) the transfer will be slightly different. The pickup locations can be a bit confusing if you haven’t done this before. There is a chat box that runs and our service people are available normally 9-18 hrs M-S CET
If you are sending to yourself put your own name as the receiver
Pick Account/Cash payout. Pick a branch or Cash pickup location
Select Crypto payment
Add your promotion code: STELLAR which gives you a 100% discount on the fee. In the future there will be costs associated with some countries as we pass on costs from our partners. IBAN payouts to Europe will remain FREE.
When you are done you will see the the payment instructions
3) Do your Stellar payment
A) trust EURT
B) Buy EURT
1) Click on send and enter in*tempo.eu.com select MEMO_TEXT and enter the TEA number of your transaction reference
2) select the amount of EURT
Finally it should look something like this:
4) Getting your funds
Sending on the Stellar network is instant. For example, funds sent to a Coins.ph wallet in the Philippines would arrive within 10 seconds..
Within the tempo system for Europe, your funds should hit your account the next day or same day if we receive the order in the morning. European payments go via the SEPA system. – where you send the IBAN. The name on the account should match the name you listed as the receiver.
For other countries funds are available normally 15 min – 4 hours depending on the time of day or day of the week on the receiving side. Unfortunately not all of our banking partners are connected to us via a blockchain yet!
If you decide to pickup your funds as cash you will need to keep your Transaction number and “Collection Pin” and show ID when you pickup the funds.
You can also pickup your funds directly at our main outlet in Paris. In the coming months you will be able to pickup your cash at one of our 250 outlets.
