And like many other Japanese apps on the Play Store, review score is at 2.2. 😱
At least the transfer was fast. I transferred from Japan Bank to Rakuten Bank, and got a mail from Rakuten, 10min later.
But it costs me 220¥.
Yes in Japan, you still pay for inter-bank transfer...
(Depending of the bank).
@benoit Some banks over here in Portugal are still charging for transfers as well. And some take days to do it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@maique eh?! In Europe there is SEPA so interbank transfer should be free. It's free in France and Germany at least.
@benoit Yes, it should. But I don’t think it’s mandatory. People do complain, but banks don’t really care. A lot of people I know moved to fintech solutions, as a way to skip those charges. Revolut is quite big here, and now we have local banks with app-only free alternatives.
@benoit Is this the same country that has 24/7 convenience shops and vending machines on every corner?
@p2501 @benoit On second thought, using the smarphone as second factor seems silly when it's the same device on which a user logs in and performs all banking operations. The calculator thing is airgapped and thus more secure.
My other Japanese bank, Shinsei, gave me a plastic card with a grid of numbers and letters. Every time I log in I must lookup 4 of them to complete a security code... it reminds me of the copy protections of some C64 videogames 😂
