OP Account SMS

Keep track of your account balance and transactions with SMS notifications

With OP Account SMS, you get an SMS notification whenever something happens on your account

OP Account SMS sends a notification to your phone whenever money is either taken from or paid into your account. You therefore find out immediately when a bill is paid, and you can also opt for your account balance to be shown in the message.

OP Account SMS gives you an easy way to keep track of your account wherever you are

OP Account SMS works on your mobile phone, and it therefore goes with you wherever you go. The messages do not show the recipient’s name, and you can choose yourself whether your account balance is displayed. If you have a joint account, you will also receive notifications of payments and credit transfers made by other account holders, which allows you to keep track of how much money is in the account.

You no longer have to wait for a bank statement to check your account transactions

With OP Account SMS, you get a notification about every single account transaction to your phone in real time. OP Account SMS complements your traditional banking services, and you will still also receive bank statements by post as before.

You can now check your account transactions and balance for a fixed monthly charge

What is OP Account SMS?

OP Account SMS is a service that sends SMSes to account holders about their account transactions – payments, e-invoices and credit transfers. Also, real-time account balance can be included in these SMSes. The SMSes make it easy to follow your account’s status, ensure that payments are duly paid and to monitor the transactions of other possible users of the account.

Can OP Account SMS be enabled for any account?

You can activate OP Account SMS on any account on which you are a registered account holder. OP Account SMS is a personal service: for this reason, you cannot subscribe to notifications relating to an account opened in someone else’s name, even if that person has given you permission to use their account.

What information OP Account SMS sends and when?

OP Account SMS sends an SMS of all account transactions. You can select yourself whether the SMSes also show your account balance. For example, you receive an SMS each time you pay using your debit card at a store checkout or when the pension is paid into your account. Likewise, you receive an SMS on your phone when, say, the phone bill is debited from your account.

The SMSes arrive on daytime between 8.00 and 22.00 so they won’t wake you up at night. You will receive an SMS about account transactions made during the silent period in the morning after 8.00.
