Increasing cash withdrawal limit feedback

There’s varying numbers of reasons why banks limit cash withdrawals.

  • They don’t hold enough cash in their systems for everyone to take out their money
  • They have to pay a fee (interchange fee?) to others banks or Link for usage
  • Prevent fraud and money laundering
  • Not enough currency exists for all the money in the banking system.

If you BACs £9999 or CHAPS anything higher it’s just a computer transaction. No money actually moves and that’s why it’s easier to do.

Completely agree. Monzo’s limits, and the process for raising these limits could really do with being looked at again.

I’m not sure what value a real, live COp adds to the process of raising a limit. If Monzo are sure they don’t want to add the function directly to the front-end, I feel like the chat-bot should recognise that a limit raise is being requested and present a form for me to fill in with all the requirements.

If a human being needs to approve that form then so be it, but that’s a better use of everyone’s time, surely?
