Difference between Online Banking and Digital Banking
You can carry out your daily banking practices through online banking and access some banking services using the internet.
While digital banking is an umbrella term used for a broader purpose, and online banking is a part of it. You can conduct all banking activities, from opening a bank account to accessing all banking services using the technology.

Word of Mouth: First-hand Experience
Tasawar Ulhaq, the General Manager of Al Taasis, recently had an overwhelming experience with Wio Bank.
“Wio Bank truly has the best corporate banking experience available in the UAE. I recently had an urgent need for a banking business solution. Sadly, no matter how many businesses one owns, opening a business account can take 3-6 months at best. In an environment where entrepreneurs are trying to build businesses to please investors, generate revenue or simply cover their costs, waiting six months is not a viable solution, and it hurts the business.
My experience with Wio Bank went as follows: I submitted all shareholders, and KYC documents on Wednesday, got an immediate acknowledgement, the bank account opened on Thursday, and I received my debit card on Saturday.
This is the best banking experience anyone can have in the UAE!
Thank you, Wio Bank, for providing a solution for millions of businesses.”
