Metro Bank has enhanced its mobile app with the introduction of international payments for its personal and business customers.
This new service will enable customers to make same-day SWIFT and next-day SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) payments in euros, US dollars and sterling to more than 38 countries.
To create a new payee, customers can either enter the payee’s IBAN to automatically generate the SWIFT BIC code or simply input their account number.
Paul Riseborough, chief commercial officer at Metro Bank, said: “We’re always looking for new ways to make our customers’ lives easier.
“Whether you want to send money to your loved ones back home or pay an overseas supplier, you can now do it with a simple tap of the app.”
This announcement comes after Metro launched its in-app AI-powered money management tool Insights.
