Bill splitting made simple 🎉

Personally, I’d have thought not.

If you were making the request yourself then I’d agree with you but wanting to edit someone else’s request seems like an undesirable thing to me. The way I’d expect that to work is that I talk to them and they sort their own request out.

I agree with this.

Id expect to decline the request, message the person and have them send an amended request.

However ive noticed that once a split has been declined its actually not possibly to resend a split for the same transaction.

Hope this is due to be fixed

Sadly this was raised when the feature was in labs and was never changed. I’m hoping the imminent cancel feature allows the transaction to be re-split or added to a shared tab but I’m not holding my breathe.

It would be good if we could add tag to payments so that it’s clear to see who paid, regardless of Monzo account (ie. If someone does a simple bank transfer).
Otherwise, when categorising items that are part of a set budget, it would be good if the balace could get updated (ie. Incoming money balancing the expenses), as a work around to my previous poit, if not feasible.
Lastly, it’d be useful to have the ability to amend “friend 1” etc to actual names, for tracking purposes.
Thanks for listening/reading :slight_smile:

The ability to add notes & tags to transfers (bank and Monzo-to-Monzo) is currently limited to Android. If this is what you’re talking about, you can vote for it here:

Love the bill split feature and have used it a lot. So pleased it now works better (not perfectly) with joint accounts :hugs:

Just a query, I sent two bill splits last week and the person hasn’t paid yet. Will monzo nag them about it and if so, how often?

From all I’ve seen, I think that’s your job. I don’t believe the app provides render notifications or anything like that.

That’s a shame, would be great if it reminded someone about outstanding payments once a week or something until it’s either paid or declined.

In my experience with frequently splitting the bill with my partner before we started utilising the joint account for eating out…

… they should get a friendly reminder from the app after about a week.

Wow. Why has no one ever mentioned this before?!

It was a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one.

Not once has this ever happened for me! :sweat:

Would be a great feature though.

So are there reminders or not? Seems to be conflicting reports about this from what I have looked at. Perhaps a recent feature?

Users are not sent notification reminders for owed monies.

This seems like a no brainer thing to implement.

If it was, I’d stop using it or want the debtor to be able to turn those notifications off.

I have gotten reminders when I’ve forgotten before so this isn’t true.

I’ve definitely received a notification a few days after the payment request when I havn’t paid. Could be an android/iOS difference?

That’s frustrating. Seems there is much more to the Android app then. Do you have settings to turn these notifications off? Don’t think I’ll be sending any more requests if not.

Nope can’t see anything. When I got the notification I found it super useful, not sure why you wouldn’t want it? If you’re requesting a bill split with another Monzo user why wouldn’t you want to remind them about it if they haven’t paid a week later? I have an outstanding one my GF hasn’t paid from over a month ago so I presume it doesn’t send more than the one notification!
