An account, a payment card and a mobile application to replace your traditional bank account.
One account to do everything
With a Visa payment card to pay and withdraw worldwide without fees, contactless mobile payments via smartphone above €50 and the possibility to generate ephemeral credit card numbers for even more secure Internet purchases and subscriptions.
Lydia’s card account also has a French bank account number to manage all its SEPA direct debits or to collect its salary.
The monitoring of the account credit and of all your current transactions (purchases, payment of a bill, addition of a beneficiary, reimbursements, transfer to a relative…) is done in real time.
It is also possible to benefit from a savings account with an interest rate of 0.7% (boosted to 3% for the first 3 months) to put money aside in complete security.
A fully customisable mobile application
In order to better manage your accounts and turn each purchase into an unforgettable memory, it is possible to personalise all your transactions, modify the wording and add a photo of the receipt.
In a few seconds, create all the accounts you need to better manage your money and close them in an instant when you decide. They will also benefit from an advanced customisation for a better understanding of your budget.
Set your payment account alerts as you wish and benefit from live balance updates, payment tracking and a single history for all your accounts.
Instant transfers and balance updates

As for account-to-account transfers, they are also free and instantaneous. With a simple “drag and drop”, it is very easy to dispatch your money to all your accounts.
Instant notifications are sent for each money movement on the account and in case of loss or theft of the card, it is possible to block and unblock it without having to call your banker.
