How do virtual banks work?

Despite having no physical branches, virtual banks usually have a physical office space to deal with customer enquires and complaints.

Although similar, online banking and a virtual bank are not the same thing. Online banking refers to an internet based system that allows you to perform banking services online but this service can be offered by a normal bank on the high street. 

Virtual banks refer to banks that operate entirely online, every single transaction is carried out online, meaning that there is absolutely no involvement at all with any regular store, unlike online banking.

A virtual bank is usually regulated by a financial institution within the country of operation, this is usually where the main offices are located.

Just like a traditional bank, virtual banks usually issue debit cards, making the account function in the exact same way a conventional bank account would.

The difference here is that virtual banks do not own ATMs or facilities and instead enable the operation of cash withdrawals through ATMs owned by another (usually physical) banking institution.

However, the issue with this is that you may be charged by the bank that owns the ATM machine for the withdrawal and use of the service but it is sometimes possible to be reimbursed by your virtual bank for these charges.

Virtual Banks FAQ

What are some of the benefits of virtual banks?

Guaranteed Security:

Many virtual banks use a highly secure platform to enable the encryption of devices to guarantee that all customer data is safe and secure. Encryption usually ensures protection against any kinds of security breaches protecting and shielding you from potential online scams. Just like a traditional banking service, customers who use virtual banks are also entitled to deposit protection.


With virtual banks all services are performed online and your banking services can be accessed at any time, and from anywhere. This makes virtual banks a perfect option for businesses who operate worldwide, overseas or in irregular time zones. Those with busy lives may also benefit from the timesaving convenience of a virtual bank. Also, those who have mobility issues can also rely totally on virtual banking services as it allows them to manage their finances easily without the need to travel to specific bank branches.

Easy account management:

Another essential feature of virtual banks is the ability to monitor your account via mobile banking. Some virtual banks also provide an on-platform budgeting software to help you to keep track of your spending habits. This means that virtual banks make it much easier to manage real-time transactions with ease, on the go. Whilst making purchases you can easily budget and calculate your savings and expenses. Conventional banks and e-wallets are usually connected to facilitate instant cross-platform transfers and payments.

No hidden fees:

There are no minimum account balance or fee requirements with virtual banks meaning that customers can open an account regardless of their financial situation. 

Higher interest rates:

Virtual banks are likely to have lower overheads which means that they can sometimes offer better interest rates than high-street banking institutions.

What do I need in order to open a virtual bank account?

When a new customer opens a bank account with a virtual bank they have to fill in an online application and make a deposit into the account. The customer can often submit this application form online. Your initial deposit will then need to be completed electronically, however, before conducting this transaction the virtual bank usually requires a form of photographic identification either through facial or verbal recognition on an app or emailing and filing documents via their website.

Why are virtual banks so popular?

With modern technology moving at breakneck speed it has become second nature for most of us to have every aspect of our lives involve a technological platform in some way. FinTech institutions are now becoming more commonplace and trusted by the general public and the prevalence of smart devices and variations in customer behaviour have led to a huge increase in the popularity of virtual banking.
