Now it offers a new personalized metal card and an account with exclusive benefits – without switching banks. The premium ‘Pro’ subscription package also includes the possibility of creating up to six accounts directly in the app, two extra Visa cards (choose your own color), three virtual cards and travel, and luggage insurance among other features. This all comes for 119DKK/month which is about 16€/month.

Product owner Rasmus Risager Lindegaard says about the development:

“The development of Pro has been challenging as it is a fairly complex product both on its own merits and on how it fits with the rest of our product portfolio.”

“When we have succeeded in getting it out to our users it is down to a strong sense of team spirit across the various squads, marketing, legal and other key stakeholders, not to mention our external partners with whom we have been in very close collaboration,” he adds.
