Number26 partners with TransferWise
Written by Chris Lemmon
Berlin-based mobile bank Number26 has joined forces with peer-to-peer money transfer service Transferwise, allowing the bank to offer quick overseas transfers from within its mobile app.
Founded last year, Number26 already has over 100,000 customers across Europe, who will now be able to transfer their Euros into eight initial currencies: US Dollar, British pounds, Swedish krona, Indian rupees, Australian dollars, Hungarian forints, Swiss francs, and Polish zloty.
Taavet Hinrikus, founder of TransferWise, said: “We want to make it as easy and fair as possible for people who need to send money abroad, so we’re very excited that Number26 customers can now access the TransferWise experience without leaving their banking app. This is a great step towards consumers having a wider choice of financial service providers and getting the best service for them.”
