When was the last time you switched banks? Yeah…and how did that go…?
Imagine being able to skip all those steps needed to switch your bank.
I bet it took a frustrating amount of time to switch. So many forms to fill, so many people to talk to, so many places to go or appointments to make or lines to stand in.
Now, you can skip all those steps!
Your new bank can get all the information they need from your old bank and set it all up for you.
But this is only one of the many perks of Open Banking.
