The bank accelerated the development of the new feature to help N26 customers amid the COVID-19 crisis
N26 has announced the rollout of a new feature, enabling customers to add a digital version of their card to their mobile wallet. This way, they can start using their account immediately, without waiting before their physical card arrives.
Due to the fact that the delivery of physical cards might be delayed or restricted, the feature will allow N26 customers across Europe to carry out transactions from their houses.
According to the statement, users will be able to activate their N26 cards on the same day they sign up through their Apple or Google Pay mobile wallets with a €200 maximum daily spend.
Besides, the new feature also solves the problem of a stolen card by ensuring customers can still pay with their accounts. They can just block their existing card and re-order a new one within the N26 app.
