Back in May, we mapped out our plan for the rest of the year. As we move towards the end of 2018, we want to celebrate what the team has achieved and share our plans for the New Year.
In the last six months, we’ve launched:
✓ Cash deposits at the Post Office
✓ Sole trader accounts
✓ Joint accounts
✓ Personal accounts for 16 to 18-year-olds
✓ Current Account Switch Service for joint and business accounts
✓ Personal loans
✓ Transaction search
✓ The ability to add notes and receipts to transactions
✓ International payments for US Dollars
✓ High value payments in-app
✓ Nearby payments
✓ Starling for Business Marketplace integrations with Xero (beta) and Zego
✓ Business overdrafts (beta)
and… Round Ups!
The team have been working hard to add new money management tools to the app and are currently testing Round Ups, a feature designed to help you save money. This has been much requested and we are happy to say that it will be released next week. Round Ups will give you the ability to round up transactions to the nearest pound and add these pennies to a Goal of your choice. For example, if you spend £1.45 on a mince pie, 55p could be added to your Goal for Christmas presents. You’ll also be able to multiply your Round Up by 2x, 5x or 10x if you want to increase what you save, each time you spend. This feature will be available to all Starling customers - personal, joint and business.
