Metro Bank introduces in-app feature allowing users to set up new payees instantly

London’s Metro Bank is now offering its customers the option to set up a new payee on its mobile banking app.

The new functionality has been designed to increase customer choice when it comes to managing payments, whether online, over the phone, in store or through the app.

Craig Donaldson, Metro Bank’s CEO, commented: “We know how important banking-on-the-go is, and we’re finding that more people than ever are choosing to use their banking app as one of the main ways to make payments.

“The ability to set-up a new payee in a couple of taps, is a feature we think will make our customers’ lives even easier and means they’ll be able to make a payment almost immediately…

“Particularly handy at this time of year when a lot of us are going out and splitting the bill with friends and colleagues, or paying for last minute odd jobs.”

Metro Bank’s app allows consumers to check balances around the clock, keep an eye on both recent and pending transactions, and using the app’s monthly summary tool, monitor and manage spending.

Instant access savings accounts can be opened and new standing orders can be created directly on the app, too.
