Ratings and Reviews
Great Bank for Solopreneurs
As a solopreneur with mediocre credit, banking has always been a hassle for me. With Novo, I was able to apply super easily online with no credit check, and was verified the next morning. My company is a non-cash business, so Novo is great because it gives me all the functionality I need without any of the frills I don’t. Paying my vendors and receiving payments from my customers is painless, free, and easy using ACH transfers and mobile deposits directly from my iPhone, and on the off chance I do need some cash they don’t charge me any debit card fees. Would love to see them release a credit card, but other than that no complaints.
Good design but...
I like the UI a lot. Very pretty, clean, modern. In fact, that’s what made me want to sign up in the first place. I love good design. UI/UX design is what I do for a living.
But while the design caught my initial attention, there just isn’t anything beyond the design that sets them apart, especially when considering this as a place to hold my money. There isn’t anything bad here, just nothing really great.
Customer support is nice and the chat function is cool, but that isn’t enough reason to decide to store my business finances here.
There may be differences that make it better than the alternatives, I just don’t really see them promoted nor have I ran into anything on the app that stands out to me.
Using phrases like “smarter banking” is just a way to market in this case and doesn’t provide any solution to where there is a problem in the space of business banking.
I would like to use them, and will keep the account open for a little while just to see where it goes, but honestly there is no reason to use this over competitors.
I like you Novo, I just don’t quite love you.

A great discovery
I’ve had a lot of bad experiences when it comes to banking in general.
I’ve always felt like I was unimportant to banks and anytime I had an issue it’s always been a hassle to resolve.
Giving a try to Novo completely changed my banking experience. After talking with their Customer Success team when I had to change my address they really made me feel like they cared about my experience and even though it was for such a small thing they were extremely polite and helpful.
Also, they are releasing a bunch of integrations like Xero which I am currently using for my accounting. This is gonna make my life so much easier as I’m the one doing the accounting for my business.
Now it’s obviously an early stage banks as the app is constantly coming up with new updates but it does not bother me. I’ve been able to do everything I needed and I’m looking forward to having access to their new web app that should come soon.
