Get has witnessed how tens of thousands of uni students felt handle cash, save, spend in Singapore. For very long, we've witnessed the pains. As a team of young graduates ourselves, we noticed:
You've signed up through a loss-making offer from high-street banks or handed a kids account by mum & dad when young. You've looked around to solve, but ended up at another high-street bank with a clunky app. This is the issue's center. Banks hadn't had an alternative for decades, so they've always embodied a corporate "lock-in" culture - signing you on when young, then offering you high-margin products like credit cards, mortgages, loans so forth — but these are rarely the best in market. What's worse is, after you start using
Since, customer expectations are way high → if bank UX can't handle, then more calls come in → more wait time → Support sucks & more frustration
In short, slick apps in music, ride-hailing, shopping, productivity apps have caught up to your modern techy life — Unfortunately banks haven't rebuilt their app from the ground up to meet their standard, offerings aren't tailored, and it doesn't integrate with the rest of your life.
For decades, we haven't ever questioned these shortfall. It's because it wasn't possible for tech companies to as bank alternatives. Today it is. With Singapore's new Payment Services Act, it allows companies compliant, to build services that put customer happiness & safety first.
We questioned, imagine what if we could build a money experience, as if our favourite apps like Airbnb or Spotify had built one?
Imagine opening an account in 30 seconds from your phone. Or sending money to friends and splitting bills with a swipe. Imagine push notifications the second you pay for anything, with balance always up-to-date. Imagine travelling overseas and being welcomed by your bank on arrival, with zero foreign exchange fees, rather always having your card blocked for fraud. If you do lose your card, freeze and unfreeze it with a single tap. Rather than banking that feels difficult, It's money that feels like magic.
Today, Get is an everyday money app as smart as your phone.
Authorised to an issue e-money account, linked with a multi-currency Visa card, built-in PayNow & FAST local transfers to friends & businesses within Singapore, Saving Jars, Budgets & Analytics , all core technology built in-house and a delightful UX.
Coming soon, we're releasing awesome integrations right within the Get app. Some examples:
We're working on these.
