I notice a couple of people are upset about our feature announcement. Please let me clarify.
Together is populated by bunq enthusiasts. For you the inner workings of bunq Premium/Business holds no secrets. However you are not the average bunq user. For them knowing how bunq works is an important thing. That’s why we continuously work on easy ways to introduce these (new) features to all. Things like email, push, experiences and awards are a few of the tactics we deploy to help users explore all the great features we have. And how it can help our users in their every day lives.
Now you might argue that we can do better. For instance on how or when we communicate certain features. Or what settings/toggles we should introduce. That’s fair feedback which we respect and will take into account.
However unfortunately there are also a few who seem to believe that they should be able to dictate their specific set of wishes to all. They deploy the tactic of “shouting hardest” or blackmail (“do xyz or i’ll leave”). To those people I would like to say: bunq holds freedom dear. And we love to do the best we can for the greater of all of our users, and indeed society. One of our great values is freedom. So if you no longer feel at home here, or seriously think a traditional bank is a better match for you, then by all means go ahead: there are no strings attached and you are free to make whatever choice you please. If you decide to stay please try to be polite and constructive. At the end of the day all we do is for you.
With apoligies for typo’s as i’m typing this on my phone, whilst pretending to be on a holiday :).
