Add New Payees Easily

Status: Working on it

- Add a Payee without having to pay them first

- Group multiple accounts under a payee

Update 18/12: You can now add multiple bank accounts to a payee!

Let us know what you think below!

What would make Monzo so much better for you?
Editing Payees details
" Linked Accounts "
Edit payee names and account labels in Payments>Recents
Improvement to Payees and ability to edit references?
Consolidating outgoing & incoming transfer contacts

With a banking history with First Direct, I’ve never had this functionality so wasn’t too fussed about it. Now that it’s looming, I look at the people I can group accounts together for in my contacts list and start to see how useful this may become.

Looking forward to it!

Can you put the same details under more than one person? I’m thinking where do I put joint account details. :thinking:

This looks exactly what I have been waiting ages for…




Yes yes yes.

Will I be able to upload contact images?

Also what is the symbol next to sort code for?


Awesome! :blush:

(Also, does that lovely doggy have a bank account?)


This look great!


  • Will there be the option to link phone contacts which are on Monzo to a Payee so you can send P2P payments through the Payee?

  • It would be great if the bank logo appeared next to the Linked Account. Maybe instead of the logo of the columned building design? I think it would help people choose the correct account to pay if a Payee has loads of different accounts.

  • Will the Payees be stored on the Monzo servers or locally on each device? Having them stored on the Monzo servers would be great - just like how Google or Apple store phone contacts.

Cool dog… cough cough

Yes, after you’ve paid or been paid by them once.

It will :slight_smile:

This will initially be an extension of “recent payees” - so everyone you can see in your recents will be moved to this new service. For now, “Monzo Stories” (as I call it, the round photos) will still be powered by your phone’s contacts.


That would be the logo of the bank :slight_smile:


Very similar to Starlings implementation. Which is good, so glad to see a similar approach being taken.


Looks bloody beautiful!

Nice job guys!

Next just need to by some sort of magic get linked to bank transfers from payees in a bill split


Would it be possible instead to store this information on the phone’s contacts (you can add custom fields to them so I imagine you can do this programmatically too)? This means your payees would be portable across all banking apps if they choose to implement this too.

That looks excellent! Exactly the kind of thing I was hoping for. :pray::hugs:


This looks so so amazing. :hot_coral_heart:

Hoping for a release soon! :soon:

And a big :heavy_plus_sign::one: for this!

Excited to see the progress on this!
