Kasikornbank allows customers to add membership cards in its mobile banking application
In a first-in-the-market effort to integrate lifestyle spending with a seamless banking experience, Kasikornbankhas allowed its customers to add virtual membership cards in the bank’s mobile banking application K PLUS. The loyalty card platform, introduced in mid-2018, allows customers to enjoy privileges without holding on to plastic cards, and earns them loyalty points for each transaction to the bank’s partners.
The service provides users with a seamless onboarding experience and exceptional functionality
K PLUS offers a hassle-free onboarding experience by allowing users to easily add or register member cards, with validation done in seconds. Users can easily view available balances, and automatically earn more loyalty points if member cards are linked to the bank’s payment ecosystem, such as through QR payment. Users can also earn and spend points in the bank’s online marketplace.
The platform has greatly increased the number of member card users
With five member cards from different industries to date, the number of member card users more than tripled within 6 months of the service’s launch. The proportion of the bank’s mobile customers with a membership card currently stands at around 3% and is expected to continue growing in the coming months as the bank continues to build on its digital lifestyle ecosystem.
