I think these things are best illustrated with a real life use case, so here goes …
I have created a Shared Tab for holiday expenses incurred on a trip abroad. When it comes to splitting the bill I would like the option to switch to the currency in which the expense was originally charged.
For example I paid the bill in Euros in a restaurant and this has appeared in my Monzo account. I know that one of my friends owes €25, but as the Shared Tab only allows me to split the bill using Sterling I have to do a mental currency calculation first. I would prefer to see the Split Bill charges in Euros, even if it’s not 100% accurate, as this makes more sense when paying in a foreign currency.
Thanks for listening!
