Fit bit, samsung, android, google pay

I’ve noticed one of Monzo’s biggest competitors supports all forms of mobile pay services which is EXCELLENT, being a mobile only bank surely Monzo would look to do the same thing and be ahead of the curve and more in line with their customer base, who use fitbits and smart phones/watches.

Monzo already support Google Pay, as for the others (Samsung, Garmin, Fitbit etc…) no work is currently being done to support them.

I find it more annoying that these companies bring their own equivalent out rather than try to simply work with Google to be honest.

I’m glad about this. I think it’s really positive that monzo are looking to address that some payment systems aren’t supported. Big :+1:’s up.

:eyes: this is good to hear

I agree but would probably mean a fee would have to be paid to apple for the service by each company which would mean consumers would get charged somewhere…

also google are a company like samsung or garmin why shouldn’t these companies look to have their own payment systems

I find it fragments contactless payments meaning overall there’s less choice as many banks don’t/won’t support the smaller services.

I wouldn’t switch banks just to use a feature on my current wearable; more likely I’d buy a wearable that I know is already compatible. An ideal world would have an open system/framework etc… that could be used by anyone interchangeably.

They absolutely should for their own benefit. They absolutely shouldn’t for the consumer impact. But it’s the way of the world, as each company clamours for more and more revenue.
