Capping card


(Danny) #1

Think the ability to put a cap on a specific category would be good, dunno if it would be possible to do this. But like for example, groceries put a cap of £50 and you can either pick day, week, month.

Why would you need this though?

Or you could check your budget routinely and make sure you don’t spent that much? Since I imagine it would be a hassle if you set a limit and went slightly above in and then couldn’t use your card. Plus sometimes you would mark something you got from Tesco/Asda etc as shopping instead of groceries eg if you got clothes, and then got blocked outright instead of being able to manually adjust categories afterwards?

You can currently set a monthly budget per category. Then you’ll get notified if you’re on track to exceed that budget by the end of the month.

We’re a bit reluctant to decline payments that exceed a budget, because this could be pretty have some annoying, unanticipated consequences for users. But it would certainly be possible in future.
