Bug in coin jar with foreign currency

(Kyle Lindeque) #1

I’m abroad at the moment and noticed that the coin jar doesn’t round off correctly. So I’m unsure if this is by design or a bug - as the round off value is in £ for the full value of the € rather than converted £ value.

When I made a purchase for a full value € it didn’t add to the jar. Only for the nonrounded € value did it then add the different to the pot.

Hey :wave: - I think this is working as expected. In your helpful screenshot, the supermarket transaction isn’t rounded because it’s below £1, not because it happens to be a round euro.

On the apartment one, the value is above £1 and the converted value is £3.95, so a round up of 5p looks right to me…

(One place where it might seem strange is when the exchange rate settles in a few days. The values sent to the coin jar won’t change, so if, say, the top transaction comes out at £3.96 the round up to the coin jar will stay at 5p, rather than changing to 4p, if that makes sense…)

It doesn’t round up anything under a quid.

The other thing to note is when the currency settles, it may change amounts, so your rounding up might not be exact.~

Edit: Beaten to it with a much better response by @Peter_G - so ignore this!

This part tricked me. It’s all round and square until they settle the payment.

Issue: When using my Monzo card in Switzerland, I made a transaction that was converted to £4.95 - however Monzo put £0.07 into my Coin Jar.
Obviously that is a small bug - but it’s still a big nonetheless.
I imagine it transfers the money to the pot before the exchange rate has been finalised.
