Suncorp Bank is please to announce an exciting new addition to its mobile banking app, a new payment enhancement allowing Suncorp Bank customers to pay their friends by taking a photo of a QR code.
The QuickShare feature is for payments between Suncorp Bank customers using a compatible smart phone and can be easily accessed by downloading the latest Suncorp Bank Mobile Banking update from Google Play or the App Store.
Suncorp Bank’s Head of Online Simon Clarke said the unique payment feature was designed to make the mobile banking experience even simpler.
“Customers are demanding more from their banks as technology changes how we move our money, this new payment enhancement will allow for same-day payments between friends with a photograph,” Mr Clarke said.
Customers simply populate their friend’s account details through Share Details, tap QR code and their friend can take a photo of the code.
“With any new feature, security is top of mind and customers need to be securely logged in to use the feature,” Mr Clarke said.
“Our digital team always design features with our customers in mind, this new payment enhancement will not only save them time but places our app as one of the best banking apps in market.”
An SMS feature can be used for paying friends who are not Suncorp Bank customers who have a smart phone.
“The SMS feature allows payment details already entered into your app to be automatically populated into a SMS, the virtual IOU template is sent by SMS and the recipient can copy and paste the details into their app for payment,” Mr Clarke said.
“Our customers’ lifestyles are busy and they need financial services that work around them, we’re thrilled to be adding this feature that will improve functionality.”
The new feature can be setup by swiping the Suncorp Bank’s Mobile Banking App homepage if the customer chooses to allow for easy creation of IOUs without logging in.
The complete overhaul to the Suncorp Bank Mobile Banking App was launched in December last year with a secure 4 digit passcode, already the App has experienced 153,000 downloads with the numbers of customers’ accessing their banking needs on smart phones continuing to outstrip desktop online banking.
