Wirecard, a digital financial technology provider, has launched boon Planet, a payment app with neo-banking services.

By using the app, users can manage their everyday financial life and, in the future, can benefit from additional services such as insurance, mobility, and loyalty features, according to the official press release. With boon Planet, a digital bank account can be opened in five minutes.

Users can make SEPA transfers and receive a physical debit Mastercard in combination with their boon app. In addition, users have a complete overview of all their finances and can carry out contactless payments with a smart device or physical card. Other banking services such as overdrafts and savings plans will also be integrated.

In addition to banking and payment, boon Planet will offer loyalty solutions in the future. Users can collect digital bonus points with every payment and redeem the funds for payments via the app.

boon is based on the Wirecard Financial Commerce platform from the front end to the back end and is the Group’s B2C product. The solution is available throughout Europe for Apple Pay, Google Pay, Garmin Pay and Fitbit Pay. In future, boon will also be launched outside Europe.
