British mobile bank Monese has teamed up with digital banking services provider PrePay Solutions to launch its upgraded mobile-only banking account.

The upgraded account will offer contactless and direct debit functionality to customers using a contactless Mastercard.

Users will be allowed to get access to a range of banking services, and start transactions instantly without address proof or credit history in a new country.

The service can be accessed across 20 countries in Europe and in eight languages.

PrePay Solutions CEO Ray Brash said: “Together we’ve developed and launched a truly innovative mobile banking solution, tailored to fit the needs of a mobile community.

We are focused on developing new and flexible solutions that enable our clients to appeal to modern customers – with Monese, this means an entirely mobile banking experience.”
