Not too long ago, the only way to get hold of a savings account was to physically visit a bank. Today, with lots of technological advancement, opening a savings account with just a couple of clicks on your mobile device is fast becoming the new norm.
Leading the change on this front is PSBank, which recently launched the Online Account Opening feature of its mobile banking app. The bank’s primary reason for this feature is simple — to make banking hassle-free and safe for Filipinos by bringing the first step of digital banking right at their fingertips.
In choosing a banking app, here are the top five must-haves:
