bankkit founder Nadim Choudary says, “bankkit was born out of a simple belief: money is meant to be easy and secure; it’s meant to work for people, and not the other way around. It is an alternative experience providing a simple interface for current accounts, insurance and foreign exchange remittance and more, at low cost to consumers and business users“.
Among bankkit’s innovative features, which no UK bank has, is easy payment of overseas utility bills (ideal for overseas business owners and homeowners) and non-utility bill payments.
Also included, is the bankkit QR code or bankkit Pay (free for merchants), that enables merchants to receive instant payments. There is no need for a terminal; therefore, there are no monthly terminal fees, no commission on transactions, no limit on the number of transactions, and instant payments between bankkit customers. With other Merchant fees averaging £25 a month and transaction fees between 1.6 and 3%, the Bankkit pay will save businesses thousands of pounds.
“We have created an app that makes it easy for consumers and business users who live and work in the UK and for foreigners who come to the UK for work or education to keep tabs on all their personal finance needs in one place. Knowing how much money is transferred between countries, especially by South Asian ex-pats living in the UK, with over $83 billion transferred from the UK to India in 2020, we wanted to create a one-stop solution that combines a UK current account with a low-cost FX remittance capability. bankkit makes it easy and cheap for people to transfer money overseas, pay bills with excellent rates at their fingertips”, says Choudary.
Customers will have access to Bankkit accounts in 23 countries for bill payments, including Argentina, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Jordan, Kenya, Mexico, Nepal, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam.
