nope and neither is the simplified banking systems the rest of the world enjoys like proper debit visa and the ability to easily send money to someones account. We still use cheques here!
No wonder that old dinosaur is still rattling around...we have trouble graduating out of the dark ages!!!!
What? So you don't get electronic bills that you pay through your internet bank account?
You're surely pulling my leg, eh?
I actually used cheques when I was an exchange student in Iowa in 1982.
You say they are still around and in use? Hilarious!
The Finns and Japanese are actually already moving away from credit and debit cards and now pay with their cell phones.
You can pay some stuff here by cell phone, like parking and bus/train fare, but we're a bit behind in this area.
Well you can pay bills and such yes but if you wanted to pay your rent for example to a person, you couldn't send it from your account to theirs like we do in the rest of the world. There's some overly complicated system where you send them an email and they accept and enter there details or something like this.
We have accounts with Swedbank and ANZ in Australia and those countries both have modern banking systems but here is a joke. In Canada, having a simple visa attached to your banking account is not possible. Only credit account visas.
