@eandree yes these are definitely great services, the issue for people in HK is that these services do not at the moment allow for transferring out of HK (only into), which is why the options here are a bit more limited. Of course for us we definitely want to allow transferring out of HK when it comes to international transfers, for a fair rate.
BOC to BOC does not even show any names??
Amazing. Just amazing, how bad banks perform from a service perspective.
I've had similar experiences in other countries (my customer in Suriname had to match bank statements to payments and just had to guess in a similar way) but Hong Kong deserves a special mention. Which is especially interesting as it's supposed to be a financial center... right? :D
Corporate Neat account will be amazing! Many people/businesses would knock at the door for sure.
But anyway, once you will add the individual account number to receive payment and the possibility to transfer out to other banks, Neat will become a great option for startups.
Hi Iris, see above screenshot from Google Spreadsheet: I used your trick, but still the same. I'll send you my CSV, so you can play with it a bit; I fixed the problem manually by removing the excess quotes in a text editor (once the description is in quotes, the comma is fine).
@William you have to know neat card issuer doesnt have a real time top up service , how can Neat have this service ?
Neat is like a cobrand with epaylink, anyone can do like neat , sometimes , I don't understand why neat will want to do this prepaid credit card business .
Other brand like tapngo, it holds prepaid card lisence itself , this will have more flexibity .
If one day , Neat has its only lisence , I think Neat can do more . Like Apple Pay , epaylink doesn't have Apple Pay , how would u expect Neat being a cobrand under Epaylink will have Apple Pay ?
There is no need to activate foreign currency purchases.
The exchange rate we use is the MasterCard rate (https://www.mastercard.us/en-us/consumers/get-support/convert-currency.html), this is mostly the same as market rate. You can check the website to easily check what you will be charged (fill out 1.5% for bank rate). So yes, for 2000 TWD it'd be HK$524.48 (for today's rate) for shopping in a store or online. For cash withdrawal, there is an additional 2.5% charge, which is what we get charged by the network see neat.hk/fees for all fees.
At the moment this does not work, because the way that PayPal works with withdrawing money to a bank account is that they deposit a few cents in your bank account and they ask you to fill out in PayPal how much they deposited (so they can confirm you are the account holder). Since we are using one segregated account for all users and you don't have direct access to this bank account it won't work, but we are working on solutions for this :).
Looks like your connection to NEAT was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
