Reinforcing its fintech leadership status, KASIKORN Business-Technology Group (KBTG) has further developed MAKE by KBank – the must-have money management app. With the introduction of e-KYC, users can verify their identity by themselves. Just download the MAKE by KBank app and apply; customers do not need to go to a bank branch. Now those without a KBank account or K PLUS can also sign up for the service. Having geared up for expanding its reach to new customers who live a digital lifestyle nationwide, KBTG aims to see the number of MAKE by KBank users reach 1 million by the end of 2022.
Mr. Ruangroj Poonpol, KBTG Group Chairman, said, “KBTG is determined to promote personal finance skill, which is very important in this era. To this end, we have developed MAKE by KBank – a personal finance management app that can help users manage their money, make payment and record their transactions – all within a single app. Additionally, it has a ‘cloud pocket’ feature that allows users to split their money into smaller pockets, thus making it easier for them to set a savings goal for each pocket for numerous purposes such as shopping, payments of various services, traveling, supporting artists and saving for the future. This feature aims to help users practice better financial discipline and achieve their set financial management goals. KBTG believes that there is no single, fixed format for personal finance management. Therefore, financial management tools must be flexible, useful for multiple purposes and aligned with the different lifestyles of customers. Moreover, for the initial 100,000 Baht deposited in the application, users will enjoy interest of up to 1.5 percent per year. Since it was introduced to KBank customers in 2021, MAKE by KBank has attracted more than 450,000 users who have created more than 1.8 million cloud pockets.
To reinforce KBTG’s leadership in financial technology, with a commitment to offer customers the most satisfying service experience, and to accommodate KBank’s mission to maintain its digital financial services leadership amid overwhelming response from users, KBTG has upgraded MAKE by KBank to the next level by equipping it with an identity authentication service via the e-KYC system so that those interested in using MAKE by KBank, but without an account at KBank, or those who have not downloaded K PLUS, can apply for MAKE by KBank by themselves.
Simply download MAKE by KBank at the App Store or Google Play Store, then apply through the following three easy steps:
Fill out your information on the MAKE by KBank app
Verify your identity using your national ID card at K-ATMs with the K CHECK-ID symbol or verification agents including Big C Supercenter and Thailand Post
Complete your facial scan for identity verification on the MAKE by KBank app
Meanwhile, existing K PLUS users can still select identity verification on their K PLUS app.
Mr. Ruangroj added that MAKE by KBank is easy to use with all the necessary and flexible features available for all types of users. This is confirmed by user feedback, rating MAKE by KBank at a high scale of 4.9/5 stars on both the App Store and Google Play Store. KBTG will continually develop MAKE by KBank in order to expand the user base to people with digital lifestyles across the country. The number of MAKE by KBank users is expected to reach 1 million by the end of 2022.
