In English, banking refers to activities such as:
- Paying in money
- Paying bills
- Transferring money between accounts
- Saving money in an account
What's the correct Spanish term for banking as an activity?
Research I have done
This article by FluentU says 'banca' is the correct term.
SpansihDict lists 'banca', but defines this in the sense of a bank as a business, rather than the activity of banking (as defined in my opening above).
For the activity of banking, it lists 'operaciones bancarias'.
3. EU Dictionary
The EU dictionary lists 'operaciones bancarias' as meaning banking transactions or banking operations. As an English speaker, this seems a little more technical than the meaning I am trying to convey, but is it like that in Spanish?
For the meaning I am trying to convey, the EU Dictionary seems to list 'actividad bancaria'. However, the definition also makes references safeguarding, which suggests it might not be right?
Googling around, I see 'hacer operaciones bancarias' appearing a lot such as on this website by Banesco.
So which is the correct term to use?
