How to use Starling app features

Starling is a different kind of bank - one that fundamentally changes money management so that it’s quicker and easier - from how you control your spending to how you pay friends back or save for the things that are really important to you. We’ve got a host of excellent money management features, explore below some of them, and we’ll keep adding to the list.

Cheque deposits

Sure, you can deposit cheques via freepost – but what if it’s raining outside? Deposit cheques of £500 or less from your mobile phone in the Starling app.

We built Goals because we believe that visualising all the great things you’re saving for (and viewing them as individual objectives) means you’ll get there faster.
