Adding my own private message in Monzo.me links


(Mark Notton) #1

I’m very excited and happy to see the new Monzo.me system. It’s really easy to use and just works!

When sending the Pay Me link, I wondered if we could pre-populate the private message box from a parameter in the URL; similar to how it’s done with the money value.

For example:

https://monzo.me/marknotton/5.50/For the cinema tickets

I know there will be complications with spaces and special characters in the URL; but these can be filtered out with some clever regex’s I think.

Cheers,

Mark

That’s already possible :slight_smile: take a look at the blog

or if you’re an Android user, this post :arrow_down: for more details

Was just about to post this, but it turns out I’m too slow and incompetent :stuck_out_tongue:

Yeah, and just since it hasn’t directly been posted in this thread, the way to set the payment description is by appending ?d=blah to the URL.

it may be easy to use if only we can guess what URL they gave us!
