Wizink pt

When bancopopular-e changed its name to Wizink, not all its customers were transferred to this new entity, but only those who had deposits or cards were affected by the change. The rest became part of Banco Popular.
This move had immediate consequences for its customers. The main one was that they could no longer use Banco Popular branches to carry out certain procedures, as had been the case until then, and, instead, they would have to carry out all formalities through the Wizink website, its app or their phone. However, Wizink would respect the conditions of the products that users had contracted with bancopopular-e up to the time of renewal.
Wizink’s offer of savings products is formed, on the one hand, by Wizink Deposit 36 months, which offers a return of 0.8% on the amount you deposit, which will have to comprise between 5,000 and 250,000 euros. As for the settlement, it will be quarterly, that is, every three months Wizink will pay the interest generated to your bank account.
