Fintech ‘super app’ Revolut has launched a web app for its 13 million customers in the European Economic Area (EEA), Australia, Canada, Singapore, Switzerland, Japan and the United States. 

While smartphones and their apps have powered the fintech boom, Revolut’s customers can now access their accounts from a browser on desktop or laptop as well. Many fintechs have eschewed desktops and tablets as their platform of choice for users. Monzo for example initially resisted a desktop portal but launched a paired back version following demand expressed from its community forum.

Revolut customers can now top up their account via bank transfer, debit or credit card, and Apple Pay (using Safari), directly from the Revolut Web App. 

Nik Storonsky, CEO and Founder at Revolut said: “Account access through a browser is highly requested by our customers, so we’re delighted to have built a safe and convenient web app that everyone can use when they need it. Our customers can now access their money anywhere and at any time, even if they don’t have their phone or card, or if they simply prefer checking their account from a computer. It’s great to have the extra convenience and flexibility of an online option.”
