Just to re-light this one in 2019…
Please would someone from the Monzo team explain whether the team are actively pursuing extending into the Channel Islands / IOM? As usual, we are unable to benefit from any of the exciting tech due to not being part of the EEA or the UK
I would like to understand what the roadblocks are and what appetite, if any, the team has to enter into a dialogue with the powers that be to overcome them?
I assume it is from the card issuers i.e. mastercard but then do not understand why that should be the case as most of us have mastercard issued cards here no problem.
We keep reading “maybe in future” and “we’d like to extend to the Crown Dependencies in future” but there is never any mention of why this can’t be sooner?
I’m also aware of many CI residents who have a card (who did not have a pre-paid card and do not have a uk address) and wonder how this came to be when it is evidently not possible if you follow the sign up process.
