We’re excited to launch a more seamless onboarding experience for people who want to join KOHO. With this, we’ve made it easier than ever for people to verify their identities through taking a picture of their driver's license. Now, people are able to experience KOHO faster and more secure than ever!
Boy do we have an exciting update for you! We’ve launched KOHO Premium, which you can now sign up for in-app. What do you get?? 2% cashback on groceries, eating out & transportation, no foreign transaction fees, financial coaching, and price matching. There’s a free 30 day trial for anyone who wants to take Premium for a spin.
We’ve partnered with certain merchants to give all KOHO users extra cashback and Foodora is the first! For those who take their cashback very seriously, you also can now see the PowerUps you’re getting on every transaction you make. Transparency is our middle name after all.
Our coffee-fuelled engineers have been hard at work improving the KOHO experience. Onboarding enhancements allow you to open a KOHO account in minutes, while adding money and referring friends is now a breeze. This all means less time toggling in your app, and more time enjoying the sunshine. You can also now see insights by tag (such as “business” or “reimbursement”) rather than category.
If you have any questions or comments for us, we’d love to hear from you. Reach out anytime via our in-app chat!
What’s new? A few small but important features to keep your app running as smooth as silk. During sign-up, you’ll know whether your identity has been verified or is still pending. Once cleared, you can now start spending immediately using Apple Pay! You can also change your address and report a lost or stolen card right in the app.
If you get a kick out of tracking your spend, you’ll be thrilled to know you can now categorize Bill Payments, eTransfers and Pre-Authorized Debits.
Questions or qualms? Reach out to us anytime via our in-app chat.
We have some very exciting news (drum roll please . . .) KOHO is now compatible with Apple Pay! iOS users can add their Physical or Virtual Card to their Apple Wallet. No more waiting for your Physical card to arrive in the mail. Simply load funds and tap for purchases wherever Apple Pay is accepted.
We’ve also made some minor improvements to your real-time notifications and merchant transaction history. As always, reach out to us with questions or feedback anytime. We’d love to hear from you.
Small changes in this update. To make splitting expenses as seamless as possible, you can accept a Joint Account invite seamlessly in-app. Plus, since we want your money to be as secure as possible, we’ve made some security improvements to the bill-pay and e-Transfer functions.
No amount of snow or freezing rain can hold our team back this winter! In pursuit of making our app as user-friendly as possible, you can now hide cards on the home-screen if they don’t tickle your fancy.
Our GET $60 button is also a reminder you can earn up to $60 each time you refer a friend. You and your pal will each get $20 on their first purchase, and $40 more if they set up Payroll Direct with an employer for at least $500. As always, keep your feedback rolling our way. We live for it!
We are just a wee bit excited to announce that JOINT ACCOUNTS are here! For the first time in Canada you can now share an account with anyone you want (like a sibling, spouse, roommate or friend), for free. You’ll each get a new Joint Account card so you can easily share funds, track your expenses, contribute to common Savings Goals, and say goodbye to splitting the restaurant bill. We hope you like the new look and feel of the app too!
