Orange Bank plans to offer short-term loans to buy smartphones

Wednesday 7 November 2018 | 13:40 CET | News
French consumers with an Orange Bank account will be offered short-term loans to fund the purchase of smartphones, starting from next year. The planned launch is one of the new services mentioned by Orange Bank CEO Paul de Leusse in an interview with Le Parisien. Early in 2019, a new paid-for bank card will also be added to the bank's range of products, featuring a dynamic verification code instead of the traditional three-digit cryptogram printed on the back of the card. Mortgages and life insurance policies will follow in 2020.
