Jan learned that people from different countries can have different mentalities and mindsets. And that if you put a bunch of those people together in one room 🔥: you get an amazing kind of energy.
We are still enjoying the afterglow of a great API Launch! 🎉 Seeing so many bunqers play around with the public API is amazing! You guys are the best, thank you so much ♥️
We have a lot of great news to share with you today 🎉 . After months of work we are proud to present two major achievements.
Today we have a surprise for all you iOS lovers out there 😃 .
We’re proud to announce that we have a brand new feature: you can now automatically accept direct debits with your bunq account!
Fun-uary has come and gone, thank you all so much for being part of our prize-filled month of joy! You have made all of our hard work worthwhile.
We faced a big question this past year: how do we want to charge for our debit cards? Time for a grand experiment!
We figured January could use a little excitement. Start 2017 with a blast and compete for daily rewards!
As of today we started our first bunq taxi pilot in Amsterdam. We’ve got 4 very colourful bunq taxi’s with lollipops driving you to your favourite spots and back home.
Christmas is coming up and we’re already feeling festive! So we decided to share some copies of our book, Breken met Banken 😄 . Want to read all about our adventurous startup years? You can, for free!
It’s December! That means: champagne, fireworks, and… best-of lists! We’re super proud to be part of one this year: Apple included the bunq app in their list of the best apps of 2016. Thanks Apple… and thank you, bunqers! We made a list for you too. Read on!
We pimped Amsterdam with our bright colours. You can find us on billboards, trams and ATMs. Next step? Let you win a box full of colourful goodies🙊 !
Most of our features are inspired by real life experiences! Our new app Slice was inspired by Anne, our on-boarding guru who wanted to share expenses with her hockey team. Check their video!
When you dive into banking history, you’ll find out banks were created to serve people and to ease their daily lives. And well, some bankers got lost on the way 👀 !
After working day and night for weeks, we released a major update last night 😄 ! The bunq app is redesigned to be more user-friendly than ever. And we prepared a special surprise for you. Read on for more!
bunqers and non-bunqers, rejoice! Starting today, there’s no €0.50 fee for iDEAL payments anymore. Instead, we made the transaction costs part of the pricing plan for bunq business. While at it, we also improved the design. Paying a bunq.me request is easier than ever now!
They’re unique, colourful, and available soon: bunq shirts! A number of you asked for them via Support. Because we have such an outrageous sense of fashion 😇 , we just had to give it a shot! So today, we’re introducing limited edition bunq shirts. And you get to pick the design!
Earlier today we had to do some unexpected maintenance work. We’re very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Liberté! We’ve been working our socks off for freedom the past months. It has paid off: we’ve established a direct link with MasterCard! From today on, your bunq debit cards will work better than ever before. And, more importantly: we’ve become independent 😄 !
Last Sunday, over 5.000 people took part in a march that celebrated diversity in our society. We ❤️ it! Like IEDER1, who organised the march, we believe in the power of diversity.
One way to kickstart the week is a healthy dose of cake 😋 . This Monday, one of you surprised us with a delicious cake that fed roughly 45 bunqers. We’re blown away by the gesture 😁.
Over the past six months, team bunq has been working hard to make sure SEPA Direct Debit (SDD) works smoothly for everyone. Now there are only a few companies and organisations left that haven't updated their systems to accept bunq IBANs. We pity the fools!
Free tonight? Come see us at the movies 😄 ! Starting today, bunq is available as a new online payment method on the website of Pathé.
Our ears are still ringing! After an adventurous QR treasure hunt in Amsterdam, we threw a modest (cough) launch party at the bunqer with author Siebe and some other friends.
Book-loving bunqers, have we got news for you: A book about our short but turbulent history just came out! Siebe Huizinga’s Breken Met Banken will be available in bookstores from today.
Today we bring a new feature (friendly push notifications!) as well as two giveaways to celebrate! Chocolate and cake lovers (and frankly, who isn't 😇 ), read on…
You've been telling us continuously what you want to see and we love to hear it. Today we're launching one of the features you guys asked for most: you can now schedule payments!
We're very sorry that in recent weeks there have been multiple disruptions for PIN payments. Although there is no quick solution we’d like to involve you in everything that's currently going on.
We’ve got something new that might come in handy this summer! From now on you can stick a QR code on your food truck and receive money without a pin terminal.
A few weeks ago, Ali was asked to give a talk at The Next Web. We decided to tell our story on how bunq came to be. This is how it went!
Hands off our unicorns!
We listened to you on how you use bunq. As it turns out it’s totally different from any other banking app!
What Willem-Alexander is selling with bunq this King's Day
A couple of days ago we heard about ING's endeavour into something resembling our Requests. Well done guys!
bunq satisfies your desires. As of today you can spend your parents’ money in the easiest way imaginable :D!
Leo the Lion is the newly appointed Chief Marketing Officer at bunq. After a long selection process, the Orange Lion proved to be the best candidate for the position.
Last week we launched bunq for business. Pretty damn cool if you're a business owner.
Starting today, we entrepreneurs can also enjoy the benefits of bunq :)!
Show us what kind of bunqer you are!
Never again an unexpected direct debit.
It's radically different from what we had before. Have a look and please let us know what you think!
The experience is seamless on your smartphone. We came up with a simple solution for iDEAL on other devices: QR codes.
Being bunqers, we love to look forward though – and we feel that 2016 will be a year in which a lot of exciting things are going to happen.
The past few weeks, bunq came in with a bang, getting loads of attention in the Dutch media. This combined with the enthusiasm of our growing group of users have spurred unforeseen growth.
Earlier today we discovered that on Android devices a temporary file was not properly removed. This issue was fixed retroactively.
The app will automatically be updated and the issue will hence also be fixed automatically.
What a week! So many people! So little time! This exceeded our wildest dreams! You guys are the best :)!
Since the huge media attention of yesterday, all our systems (and people) are working hard to process the incredible amount of requests that are coming in.
Wow wow wa wa wie wa! So much positivity! Look what you did :D
After four years of insanely hard work, we are extremely proud and even more excited that bunq is available to all.
Some questions reached us through the media, that we would like to answer.
Your response to the beta has been overwhelming. The invites for iOS went really fast and we’re all out.
Finally, the moment has arrived: we launched our invite-only beta!
And so the 'Delft Boys' started.
Be who you want to be, love who you want to love and dare to think different.
"Wait a minute. So if I understand correctly, you are doing Java in PHP?"
We need to become the architects of our own reality.
As the latest addition to bunq's legal team, I sometimes feel like Marty McFly travelling through time in the DeLorean.
Last weekend our surroundings radically changed.
Remember puberty? You squeezed pimples, challenged alcohol limits, defined your own style.
Elevators. You're basically forced to spend 30 to 120 awkward seconds with complete strangers in a closed off box.
It’s my first week here and I’d like to share my crazy experiences with you.
As a designer you are faced with ever-changing landscapes of devices, resolutions, media and frameworks. It’s a jungle out there.
Yesterday was the second time that we celebrated Christmas at bunq.
So bunq you say? But what does your name mean?
There's this thing that we've been working on for quite a while now. This thing that everybody wanted to know about, yet remained a mystery.
