The Santander bank has introduced a new mobile app that allows users to access their bank accounts without the hassle of inserting a debit card into a cash machine, joining the ranks of Bancomer (which introduce a similar feature in 2017) and other banks around the world.
Santander representatives explained that with the push of new buttons on a smartphone screen, users will receive a reference number and password, which they will then be able to type in to an ATM to access their bank account, adding a measure of personalized security.
The bank said the service can be used at any of its 8,700 ATMs throughout Mexico, each of which have been updated to include a special button to access the feature, in conjunction with the Santander “SuperMóvil app”, granting customers the ability to make as many transactions as desired up to a daily limit of approximately US $257.
Representatives highlighted that there is no extra charge to use the card-less feature and that so far, over 64,000 customers have used the new service.
