Foreign currency transaction amounts differ in detail and summary view

In process of asking with customer service, but thought I’d raise this concern more widely - in case it chimes with others. It seems so obviously out of kilter that I can’t see what I have dome wrong, if anything.

I needed to purchase a bit of software, priced in dollars. This would be reclaimed. The transaction got processed, with the $ amount provided and GBP amount in grey to indicate provisional. I later see that the amount is now firmed up in black. However now there’s discrepancy with the amount in the timeline summary and the amount in the transaction detail. I now don’t know which to believe for claiming the expenditure back.

Is the discrepancy in dollars or in pounds?

Solution as been highlighted. User misunderstanding of the effects of rounding. Initial transaction has a rounding element - when transaction finalised, this has often varied, resulting in a non-obvious variation of the rounding. Ouch. No defect at all - just incomplete understanding.


I think currency discrepancy occurs when a money withdrawal is rejected by user on ATM. I suspect that those transactions are not handled well for foreign currencies in trip su

mmary view.

As a software engineer, I think the reporter is right. I was in Zurich for a few days last week. Actually in transactions, the currency conversion rate was correct (GBP/CHF ~ 1.27). However, in trip summary, it is approximately 1.41, which is nosense.

I am attaching a screenshot to prove. Monzo developers, please do not hesitate to ask for personal data to me.

Kind regards,
