Why now ?

In recent months, many months have forced many people to have to change their habits in order to adapt to a new daily. The use of cash has dropped considerably in France. The number of withdrawals to the distributor fell by a third party during the pandemic, while the payments made with Apple Pay and Google Pay increased by 74 % compared to the previous year. With more and more people managing their online money, we have increased our efforts to explain how to protect you when you spend online. We have also introduced new ways to manage your online finances more easily thanks to different features: the Iban scanner for your transfers, a QR code reader for Moneybeam, a button to activate/deactivate contactless payments, or even rounded, to allow you to put money automatically.

We arrived at the stadium where we think we have to ask ourselves the following question: are physical cards essential or now accessories ? While many customers continue to display their preference by choosing the N26 card adapted to their style, others already seem to have made the choice to give up the plastic card, whether for ecological concern or simply by practical sense. It therefore seems important to us to offer you the possibility of adopting a 100 % digital experience when you open your N26 account, guaranteed without paperwork or plastic.
