  • Whole-heartedly support the ability to provide deposits via a retail branch/store, however, I’m wondering where the catch is. Other challenger banks have started similar initiatives, which includes fees for people who want to deposit money via a drugstore, for example. If we are doing this to better help people living paycheck-to-paycheck, we need to keeps fees to a minimum (or $0).
