MB WAY is the Multibanco solution that allows you to make instant transfers, online and physical purchases, generate MB NET virtual cards and even withdraw money via your smartphone, tablet or PC. From this Friday (January 1), transfers via MB WAY will be free in all banks. However, Santander and Novo Banco offer more than definite.
