While some things are better to do in-person at your bank, cashless digital transactions are becoming more popular in Vietnam. Both internet banking and mobile banking allow you to safely access your bank services remotely over the internet.
Here’s what you need to know about them, and the differences between the two.
Internet or online banking is a way to make digital banking transactions over the internet. You can access most of the same services you'll get at a local branch, such as deposits, transfers and the ability to pay bills. Almost every banking institution has some form of online banking.
Mobile banking is an online banking service conducted on a smartphone, tablet or other mobile device. Like internet banking, you can do most of your transactions through mobile banking without the need to visit a branch in person.
This technology requires users to download a mobile app from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android) to access their accounts over the internet. Apps offer similar features to online banking but are often more convenient and easier to use.
With the mobile banking app, you can view your globally linked bank accounts and check your balance. You can also update your contact information, activate your credit card, receive banking alerts and notifications, and more.
