Starling Bank partners with household bills app


Digital challenger bank Starling Bank has welcomed household bills management service Onedox to its in-app marketplace.

The integration of Onedox means Starling customers will be able to view household bills, reminders and personalised opportunities to save on household bills, all within their Starling app.

London-based Onedox is on a mission to revolutionise admin for millions of households.

Its free digital dashboard automatically collates disparate household account information into one place, proactively monitors whether customers are getting a good deal, notifies them when important dates like contract end dates are approaching and helps them switch to better deals.

“Onedox provides its customers with control over their household bills and acts like a digital PA to prevent families wasting time and money,” said co-founder and CEO David Sheridan.

“Partnering with Starling provides scope for an ever more compelling consumer solution, whereby consumers can begin to get a single view of what they have been charged, why they have been charged, and what action they can take to reduce what they pay.”

The new partnership has been announced just months after Onedox launched a £750,000 crowdfunding campaign. It followed the start-up’s successful £550,000 round in September 2017.

“Since last year, we’ve grown the team from around four to 10 and we’ve been primarily developing the platform,” Sheridan told BusinessCloud at the time.

“We’re now at a stage where we’re looking to really grow customer acquisition and start focusing on making money.”

Starling’s in-app Marketplace, launched in February 2018, offers its customers direct access to financial services and products securely on their phone.

The challenger bank has existing partnerships with other fintechs including pension provider PensionBee, digital investing services Wealthsimple and Wealthify, mortgage broker Habito, travel insurance provider Kasko, life insurance provider Anorak, and receipts and loyalty partner Flux.

“With the addition of Onedox to our Marketplace we’ve taken another big step in helping our customers take control of their money,” said CEO Anne Boden.

“We are building a banking experience fit for the 21st Century, where the best financial products are available securely in one place.”
