    Come on, For the DR this is a huge step. We are talking about a Dominican Bank doing it in the DR. I doubt the one from PP is of any use here.

    Exactly the kind of non-sense contradiction this country is best at, "virtual wallet" capability but the core of the populace could barely afford a platano for lunch.

    Where are the priorities?

    This will eventually be pushed as "progress" by the same morons which chant economic developments.

    to put it in perspective..
    right - many have no credit card, $$ , etc.
    the banks make nothing from them.

    The bank customers are more sophisticated & know what is possible.... and want it

    Banks serve their customers to make the money

    Does that explain it ?

    Do not cater to a non customer...
    Yes - the banks' business will improve with this

    RD banks have good online platforms.... I say

    In 2014 there were more than 6 million debit and credit cards in the DR. Perhaps now there's a million or two more cards.

    The country has roughly 10 million people, including children, illegals, and those in prisons (assuming its almost impossible for these three groups to get a card of any kind). Not bad.

    No Sir, it doesn't work that way.

    See, banks don't make their money off of people like you and I, we are informed customers and are the few in the DR that knows and would use this platforms with no margins for the bank.

    In the other corner is Juan and Pedro the motoconchos dude's, they make the essence of the type of clients bannks in the DR make ton's of monies from and furthermore, these types of clients wouln't stop to even take a look at this "advantages" of technology at their fingertips because they use two things:

    -
    Cash

    - Debit Cards

    The cash for daily living and the Debit Card to give to he "prestamistas" until the next payday as a secure means for the next loan.

    Now that is the "real" platform in the DR and I say so!

    ps: I got portion of all of that after going back and reading a few books in macroeconomy as per previous suggestion for someone around here.......
