Does anyone have the slightest clue what Pingit is meant to accomplish?
As they’re moving bPay over to it, I’ve just opened an account. Don’t really feel like making the trek down to Barclays to verify my ID though for the full KYC jazz.
I also don’t have any friends that use it, but by the time someone signs up to it surely I could have just made the bank transfer with Starling or Revolut by then? Feels like it’d only be useful if you went out of your way to use it.
I’m literally at a loss of why it exists, only reason I can think of immediately is to make business payments easier, which if anything I disagree with. The businesses aren’t branded, it’s by actual location so you’d have to know the business address.
So the only reason I can see to use it is in the hope that bPay gets a nice UI within a few months. God will need to intervene if they try making me pay another £10 for a wristband though, considering I’ve had mine not a year now.
