With the greatest integration at a technological and commercial level that has been made in the Spanish financial system, the migration of customers and their data from the Bankia financial entity to the CaixaBank entity began today at 3:00 p.m., and is There are many doubts that arise among the clients of the defunct Bankia. Here we have solved the migration of data from one app to another, which will not force you to change your username or password.
But, what can you do this weekend with the Bankia app? Should you switch to CaixaBank now?
The Bankia app
According to him Official M&A of the merger, “CaixaBankNow will be your new digital bank based on operational integration. You will be able to access your new digital bank from November 14. Until then you must continue using the Bankia app and website “.
Therefore, the answer to the question is that for now, from today Friday and Saturday, you can continue doing (almost) everything you normally would do in the Bankia application, because it is still operational, although already on Sunday 14 you will have to download and use the CaixaBank app.
You cannot send money through Bizum
We have said ‘almost everything’, because there is only one thing that you can no longer: money transactions through Bizum. According to La Caixa, “The Bizum service will cease to be operational only for customers from Bankia on Friday, November 12 at 3:00 p.m. (peninsular time). For e-commerce purchases, the service will close on Thursday, November 11 at 9:00 a.m. This unavailability affects all the value-added services that Caixabank offers through Bizum: payment between individuals, payment of donations, payment in electronic commerce and Selae payment.
As of Sunday, November 14, Bankia’s migrated customers “They will already have access to CaixaBank’s digital channels to operate with Bizum normally”.
