Sri Lanka’s Sampath Bank introduces slip-less transactions

Jan 04, 2017 (LBO) - Sampath Bank has launched slip-less transactions to provide their customers greater convenience through a mobile app that is available on iOS and Android, a statement said. 

With the launch, the slip-less transaction facility will allow customers to carry out cash deposits and withdrawals without filling out any forms. 

The Bank plans to roll out bill payments, credit card payments, cheque deposit facilities and much more in the near future in order to reduce the use of paper and provide customers with more convenient ways to bank. 

Also included in the expansion of the facility are special standalone terminals to be placed inside branches to help non-smartphone users take advantage of Slip-less transactions.

 Managing Director of Sampath Bank, Nanda Fernando says this latest innovation takes us closer to our ultimate goal of paperless banking.

Registering for Slip-less transactions is simple and only requires customers to download the app, enter their name, NIC number, mobile number and create a password within the app. 

The customer will also have the option of inputting their account number and email address during the registration process for added convenience.

 Using the Slip-less transaction facility then onwards will be simple and convenient with the inclusion of a few details. For deposits, the customer will only need to insert the account number and the amount to be deposited in the Slip-less transaction app. 

Withdrawals can be carried out just as easily, by SampathVishwa users, by entering their account number and the amount they wish to withdraw.

 Those customers who have already registered their account number within the app will not need to enter it again for each transaction. 

Even those who are not Sampath Bank account holders can use the facility to make deposits to Sampath Bank accounts. 

The app also has the added benefit of providing customers with access to their transaction history on their mobile phone.
