N26 offers a range of features similar to your high street bank. You can see your spending categorised by the type of transaction (e.g. shopping, restaurants) as well as send or request money from other N26 users instantly and for free. Additionally, it is possible to earn interest on your savings. Setting up or canceling direct debits is comparatively quick and easy and in Austria and Germany it is possible to use overdrafts. You can set up Apple Pay or Google Pay. 3D Secure online payments are supported. Additionally, N26 offers a number of smart savings and budgeting features integrated into its Spaces product. It allows customers to set monthly rules that automatically transfer an amount of their salary to a savings space, much like a standing order. They also have a new "Round-up rules" feature where expenditures can be rounded up to the nearest Euro, and the spare change automatically put into a savings space to help people grow their wealth with minimal effort.
The company has recently also created a feature Shared Spaces - which is meant to function similarly to a joint account without the hassle or commitment of opening one. Instead of creating a new account, people can invite up to 10 friends, family or loved ones to a "Shared Space", where all participants are able to save, spend and work towards goals together. Unlike a joint account that comes with much more commitment and less flexibility, these Shared Spaces can be opened, closed and edited easily and can be used for anything for saving for a gift for a mutual friend and paying for utilities with a housemate among others. In addition to offering travel insurance, N26 You offers lifestyle insurance that includes winter sports coverage and mobility insurance that covers car sharing, e-bike and e-scooter rentals at home. N26 Metal also comes with additional car rental and mobile phone insurance.What is more, the company also offers N26 Business, N26 Business You and N26 Business Metal, all of them targeted at freelancers and self-employed individuals. All of these offer cashback on card spend at different amounts depending on which product is chosen.
