How many custom categories can be made?

Hi there,

I wanted to know how many custom categories can be created with either the Plus or Premium account.

Is it unlimited?

Many thanks,



Would have prefered more than that.

What in the lordy for? I’m curious :sweat_smile:

I’d say the basic ones are a bit rubbish but even when I had Plus/Premium I only had ~5 other ones to help understand my spending.

I have parent categories with sub categories written into the name of the category so that when I use the automated excel import I can then split these up to have a deeper dive into the specific categories and where the main costs occur within the categories.

I personally find it more useful to analyse in more depth.

2 things that would be super useful would be a flexible ability to apply categories and sub categories, and also the ability to read text from a reciept so that when you photograph it it can apply the relevant text into a csv - this isn’t a very complex technology these days.

Maybe it would be worth having a basic setting for Monzo with basic controls and then advanced settings, for nerds who want more ability to adjust in more detail their personal preferences to track finances.
