ive banked with co-op as a business customer for about 15 years with absolutely no complaints until they changed online banking.
Jeez I'm pretty intelligent but their online banking is appalling.
Every time I click on my current account it tells me my overdraft is my interest rate etc but what I want to see straight away is my transactions. It took at least three logins and about an hour before I found them and now instead of having columns of incoming and outgoing they are all in one column. NOT HELPFUL. Can I find a list of direct debits and standing orders NO
Tried to ring customer services around half a dozen times and given up as on hold for at least 30mins. As a business im working trying to earn money not sitting on hold and not helpful due to short opening times too. Its all got lousy just lousy. Not good for business co-op. You need to look after your customers

Shocking, just shocking.Terrible service, just terrible. Unable to print of card statement , spoke to someone called AJ (?) today, got absolutely nowhere. He told me my complaint wouldn't be answered for 8 weeks! 8 weeks!!Have already closed my current account. Wrote a letter to the CEO who hasn't had the manners to reply when I complained about my treatment by them when in hospital with cancer. Don't go near them - you will 100% regret it.

New banking interface failure

The new online interface whilst was marketed as a significant improvement, it fails to live up to the hype, it's awful to use, a complete timewasting exercise, logs you out upon simple requests, there is no option to print any transactions. Have...

The new online interface whilst was marketed as a significant improvement, it fails to live up to the hype, it's awful to use, a complete timewasting exercise, logs you out upon simple requests, there is no option to print any transactions. Have messaged the COOP they suggest changing browser ect.ect. but this is not the problem , obviously designed by beaurocrats that nver have to bank online, shame was just starting to enjoy iusing the COOP

Online Business Banking

I am amazed given how good The Co-op bank has been in the past how bad the new 2020 online banking system is. They could never have sat down with a customer to see how difficult it is to use. Absolutely astonished as to how bad and regressive it is....

I am amazed given how good The Co-op bank has been in the past how bad the new 2020 online banking system is. They could never have sat down with a customer to see how difficult it is to use. Absolutely astonished as to how bad and regressive it is. The transaction search does not even have a balance column.

This is the worst online banking service in the sector

I've used business banking systems from HSBC, Lloyds, RBS and others. the new (2020) Co-operative business banking is the worst by far. There is not a single redeeming feature and, frankly, it is shocking that the bank and its CEO Andrew Bester does...

A Business Banking Website not fit for purpose

I would love to know which Co Op executive signed off on the new business website. This person is a lazy idiot who has never had this site tested by customers. At least the old site worked you have now created a Frankenstein site so far behind your...

Switched business account a few months ago. It took months to open the account as they lost the application once and the on the second attempt they took so long to process the information it timed out and I had to start from scratch. The business online banking is dreadful, slow, clunky and many of the reports cannot be trusted (they are aware of this, but do nothing). There is no mobile banking app. There are few branches and they generally take an hour to pick the phone up.

Professional and friendly

I have banked with the Co-op since 2001 and even though I am frequently offered cash incentives by other banks to transfer I would not do so. When I need to call them, the staff are always helpful and friendly with a great knowledge of their products.

Awful customer service and more expensive than other banks.

We have got another bank after some bad experiences - firstly we never had an introductory rate, we got charged for pretty much everything (more than other banks charge) and when I tried to get a new PIN number I had about 100 questions as I couldn't...

We have got another bank after some bad experiences - firstly we never had an introductory rate, we got charged for pretty much everything (more than other banks charge) and when I tried to get a new PIN number I had about 100 questions as I couldn't remember my log in and ended up in tears as the lady was so patronising to me. We also had a bad experience with coop insurance a few years ago. I like the shop but not any other of their products!
