History of transactions for a merchant


#1

Hi,

Currently, Monzo shows the number of transactions and the total spent for a merchant.
I was wondering if there are plans to introduce the detailed view for all the transactions grouped by merchant. i.e., if you click on number of the transactions or the total spent it can open another screen with the list of all the transactions with this merchant. It looks like the data is already there and the feature would be very useful.

Thanks!

+1, very good idea.
I’m not sure why I second your idea, because it means a massive guilt trip when seeing those purchases from Steam in one batch. :unamused:

Hey Ivan! Thanks for the suggestion! I’d be really interested to know why this would be useful for you? As number of transactions and total spent are already available, is it just a greater degree of detail you’re after?

Since this is already a feature in the iOS app, I’m guessing that it’ll be available for Android users too, once the apps reach feature parity?

Once search is introduced on Android this will be an easy way to view transactions from the same merchant.

I think it’ll be useful to see when you went there exactly and how much did you spend all time. Sort of what is on the picture from alexs’s post. The average doesn’t really tell you much, since you may want to know the tendency, e.g., you used to spend 10 pounds there and now you spend 20. The average would be 15, but maybe all your last transactions are 20 pounds and that what matters. Or maybe you were not going there for 2 months and now you started going again. There are a lot of reasons why that can be useful.

You’re spot on there, since you’re viewing a merchant’s transactions using search, you can apply various filters to the transaction history. For example, you could add their postcode to the criteria, to view a certain store. Or filter the transactions by date, to see an update total and average :+1:

The search functionality is explained in this blog post -

@ivanvedro makes a lot of sense, thanks for clarifying for me!
