Yondr launched via public beta a few months ago and is already closing in on a thousand customers. Our beta offering currently includes A multiple currency wallet holding 9 currencies, physical and virtual Visa cards, and personal financial management tools all via our app (Android & iOS).
Why the name:
Our naming journey started with 70 names scattered across the table. After taking a vote from 100 people including the team, friends and family, 'Yondr' was unanimously selected as the crowd favourite.
Why did the business start?
While travelling, our founder (Shane) realised that a number of fintech based in Europe and North America were making it super easy for their customers with an awesome user experience while giving them lots of value too. The Australian big four banks control roughly 80% of the market. With the lack of innovative options, the banking market is ripe for disruption and Shane has built Yondr to give everyday Australians a customer-centric digital banking alternative.
