Wirecard to offer attractive current account interest rates via its payment and banking app boon Planet starting in 2020

19 noiembrie 2019

Following a successful launch, Wirecard is adding further attractive features to its boon Planet digital payment and banking solution: boon Planet current account holders will receive interest of around 0.75% from the beginning of 2020 – a rate that comparable solutions do not offer.

„Throughout the year, the offering will be expanded to include further investment options. Users no longer have to leave the app to manage their everyday finances.”, according to the press release.

Claudia Kaub, Head of Consumer Solutions at Wirecard, said, “With the additional functionality, we are continuing to pursue our goal of simplifying consumers’ entire everyday financial life with boon. This also includes attractive investment options.”

„With boon Planet, a fully comprehensive digital current account, which underlies the European deposit guarantee, can be opened in five minutes.”, Wirecard said.

Users have a complete overview of all their finances and can carry out contactless payments with a smart device or physical card anywhere Mastercard is accepted.

„In the future, services such as intelligent savings plans, real-time insurance, digital loyalty features and mobility solutions will be integrated.”, the company added.

The new offering will be available to all boon Planet users in Germany from the beginning of 2020, and will be launched in further countries in the near future.

boon Planet will not only be available in Europe but in future also worldwide. The boon platform can additionally be used by Wirecard’s B2B clients, businesses of any kind, which can offer the service under their own brand.

Wirecard therefore expects to win hundreds of millions of banking customers over the next years. By combining data and AI-driven services with innovative neobanking features in a single app, targeted solutions can be offered in the future.

Tendinţele pe care le-am remarcat înainte de începerea pandemiei s-au accelerat pe perioada stării de urgenţă. Am văzut acest lucru ca o oportunitate, un tipping point pentru bancă. Post-pandemie nu avem cum sa ne întoarcem la comportamentul financiar pe care îl aveam până în februarie a.c. Relaţia românilor cu online-ul s-a schimbat. In plus, cardul fizic se va dematerializa. Vom asista la o scădere a cererii pentru cardurile fizice, respectiv la o creştere a preferinţei pentru componenta digitală a acestora.”
