We’re very pleased that Joint Accounts are now available to you all in the latest Android (0.46.0) and iOS (0.53.0) apps.
Joint accounts have been one of our most requested features. You’ll be able to save together with shared Goals and get visibility of the spending on your new account with notifications and spending insights. This is a full joint account that both of you will have access to and control of all the money in.
It’s really simple to open an account and should take you only a few minutes to get set up. You’ll need to make sure that you and the other person both have your Starling personal accounts ready and then tap ‘Get another Starling account’. There’s some information about the account and then you find the other person’s app nearby.
There’s a few things to know:
- Your new joint account debit card will say ‘Joint Account’ under your name and we’re looking at how to make it easier to tell your Starling cards apart in places like mobile wallets at the moment.
- We’re also working on improved notifications right now but if one of you add your card to a mobile wallet today you’ll both receive notifications. As was discussed on the community we’ll be sending you notifications that tell you who made a transaction and on which account very soon.
