We’ve highlighted the features Mettle offers businesses, to help you decide whether it will be the right fit for yours.
Mettle is the first standalone banking app offered by one of the high street banks, NatWest, which is part of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group.
NatWest’s new digital business account can be seen as a response to challenger banks like Starling and Revolut, which have changed the face of banking in the last few years, reeling in customers by letting them open and manage bank accounts all through their mobiles, and offering great exchange rates for people who travel frequently.
Mettle will let business customers apply for an account in minutes, forecast business performance and create invoices. All of this will be possible in its mobile app, which is designed to be easy to use.
As Mettle is only in its pilot stage, only a limited number of customers can get an account. You can apply for early access on the Mettle website, though.
We’ve covered the current key features of Mettle below, but the app may change following testing, since early customers will help shape the app with their feedback.
As it’s currently only in its pilot phase, the application process may change. For now, these are the steps:
Mettle is separate from NatWest and is not a bank, so it isn’t currently covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS protects money you’ve deposited in a bank up to £85,000 if it goes bust – this does not apply to Mettle.
In terms of the app, it has security processes to ensure the safety of your money. Meanwhile, you can freeze your card instantly in the app should you lose it.
