The company indicated that its mobile application is used on a daily basis by the majority of its customers. In France N26 represents a volume of more than 1 billion euros of transactions per month on average (over the last 6 months).

“In 2020, the banking world changed rapidly. Overnight, we found ourselves in 2030. The mobile phone is now the daily wallet. Cash and branches are giving way to apps and mobile payments. No more hidden costs and paperwork—the French want to manage their bank like they manage their energy, telephone or entertainment—on their phone.”, explains Jérémie Rosselli, CEO N26 France & BeNeLux.
