THE SITUATION AT HAND

With the gradual distribution of Covid-19 vaccines, the world is becoming more eager to return to the norms of how it used to be before the pandemic. However, many experts have informed us that “going back to normal” might not be what many have expected.

The possible risks of COVID-19 continue to loom over the lives of everyday people, and the future of businesses in many countries across the globe. In some parts of the world, lock-downs, social distancing and travel restrictions are still heavily implemented. Physical interactions proceed to carry the risk of spreading the deadly virus to other people and running errands without proper precautions can cause people their lives.

Knowing significantly about the danger of the on-going pandemic, many have chosen to rely on the internet entirely to carry on with their lives; this includes online banking. Online banking is fundamentally a banking method that allows customers of a bank or payment institution to conduct financial transactions via an electronic payment system created by said institution.

In the last two years, the finance world has witnessed a surge in digital transactions via internet banking, especially for sending money overseas. According to experts in the financial field, this trend will continue. There are many positive aspects to making your transactions digitally, and it will also provide positive impacts on your life.

WHY YOU SHOULD SWITCH TO INTERNET BANKING

In this pandemic, many families suffered physical separation, while many companies struggled to keep themselves afloat. Some are on the verge of bankruptcy, and millions of people are facing the difficulties of keeping their lives intact. This resulted from the sudden disconnection of traditional banking in which many people were heavily relying upon.

Even though internet banking and other digital payment services are familiar to modern-day people, the digital banking trend has just been gaining momentum in the last few years. The drastic shift towards digital banking and new forms of financial services were initiated when the pandemic escalated globally.

Many have chosen digital transfer for the following reasons:

  • The transaction is processed much faster than with traditional banking.
  • It is profoundly more convenient to make remote transactions than to be physically present at a traditional bank.
  • It has a better range of financial services which allows you to choose whatever payment method fits your needs.
  • It is more secured in terms of customer identification and transaction.
  • Digital transfers are considerably more transparent about their fees and the transaction process. Some financial institutions allow customers to track their transactions status live.
  • Lastly, digital banking provides better transaction prices compared to traditional methods.

Digital banking has proven itself to be the best way to send money internationally. With the convenience of internet banking and mobile banking, expats can now support loved ones despite the separation, parents can send money overseas for their kids who study abroad, companies can reach international clients, and online shopping can be done effortlessly.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN USING ONLINE BANKING

You now have learned that choosing online banking is the most vital method not just as a quick solution to deal with the pandemic but as a long term payment companion in personal as well as business development.

To help you understand the impacts of the right payment institution can have on you and your business, we have put together a few things you need to keep in mind when choosing your future payment partner:

  • If it is possible (and it is possible), choose an institution that provides a full online banking service, from account registration and transaction management.
  • Choose an institution that supports international money transfer such as SWIFT services for international transfer and SEPA for Eurozone transfer.
  • Choose an institution that is transparent about their transaction fees.
  • Choose an institution that provides multiple financial services, ranging from personal finance to business banking services, especially when you are an entrepreneur or you are operating a business.
