Open a new transaction account from your mobile

St George Bank, Bank of Melbourne, and BankSA will now allow users to open transaction and savings accounts from their smartphones, even if they aren't already customers with the bank.

Customers won't be able to withdraw what they've deposited until they've submitted a 100-point identity check. Both the Android and iOS platforms will be able to open accounts on the go.

“Our aim is to continue to improve our mobile banking platforms so they not only give customers a convenient way to conduct their daily transactions, but also the ability for them to actually take up great offers while they are on the go,” St George Bank group's head of eChannels Travis Tyler said in a statement.
