Apple Wallet - Duplicate notifications


#1

Sometimes when I use my Monzo card I get the standard notification from Monzo app informing me of the spend but sometimes I also get a notification from the wallet app on iPhone telling my about the same payment.

This does not happen all the time. Last night for example 3 payments were made, two to Tesco and one to Iceland. Wallet sent a notification about one of the Tesco payments but not the other two payments.

I’ve just found out I can disable notification for Monzo within the wallet but I was wondering why I get this duplication sometimes?

Thanks

If you’ve done it like this you should only get notifications from the Monzo App itself

Thanks I found that setting as I was posting. I didn’t realise you could disable notifications on a per card basis.

I wonder why it triggers with Monzo sometimes but not others?

No problem and as for the othe one I’m wondering that myself hopefully it won’t happen now I realised you could do it on a per card basis as I got slightly annoyed by seeing two notifications a few months back.

I tend to prefer to have both notifications for those odd occasions when the Monzo one is delayed for a minute or two.

I’ve only had a triple notification once, I think. But there was some problem with the card reader, if I recall correctly. It detected two cards for some reason, and I had to re-present my phone.

I think it was iOS 12 which introduced the ability to disable/enable it on a card by card basis :slight_smile:

The thing is, at least for me, most of the time I don’t get duplicate notifications so there’s no consistency. I put through two payments in the same shop yesterday and I got a single Monzo notification for one and a duplicate Monzo\Wallet notification for the second. So it doesn’t look like something you could rely on.

Ah probably explains why i’ve not seen that setting before. Thanks.

You could always do it on at card by card basis, but before 12, you had to disable the transaction history to disable a card’s notifications, which wasn’t ideal. Now you can control history and notifications separately. :credit_card: :boom:
