There’s a few tweets flying around that are similar today :eyes:

Oh God it’s Apple Pay all over again…

Nothing is coming guys, it’s just them trolling again :roll_eyes:

Something to do with a robot :robot:? :thinking:

Maybe they all get paid tomorrow

(By a robot)

If its not this robot I don’t really care

Within the next 3 months, we’ll let you create a Pot that’ll pay a competitive rate of interest

A pot? Will it be like Coin Jar and be specifically named so it works with that one and that one only?


Sure, Qatar. There was a thread on here somewhere where TransferWise were answering our questions.

In fact, you can only send money to these 46 countries:

And there are limits on which currencies you can send to which countries, too.

So integrating TransferWise into Monzo would fall far, far short of full IBAN capabilities.



He has been working super hard with a few others.

It’s exciting.


‘Show upcoming Direct Debits in your feed’

How will this be displayed? Perhaps through summary but ‘in your feed’ makes me think something like ‘Barclaycard will take x tomorrow’

Really excited to see joint accounts on the roadmap. This would definitely entice me back to Monzo after I left because I couldn’t share finances with my partner. Will it be possible to open a joint account as your only account with Monzo, or will you have to have a single current account as well? Would be good if the former.

(Emma (still not the app)) #214

Both users need to have an individual account in order to open a joint account

(Christopher J. Sladdin) #215

Do you know if there are plans to change this once introduced? Seems unnecessary to have two accounts when you only intend to use one.

(Emma (still not the app)) #216

Not that I know of.
From some of the development they’ve shared on the @MakingMonzo twitter feed it looks like it’s designed to be linked to the individual account, including the creation of the account by inviting a Monzo contact. Can’t see them launching it like that and then redeveloping it to work without at a later date.

(Christopher J. Sladdin) #217

Hmm, shame. Any idea whether savings pots will be shareable as well?

(Emma (still not the app)) #218

Joint pots has been moved back until later in the year. I’m not sure how that will work in relation to savings pots, nothing has been announced yet

(Dominic Adshead) #219

I raised the question about exporting expenses previously

Glad to see that we will able to edit standing orders soon, very annoying that we cannot do this at the moment.


Anybody know what will happen here yet?


Fantastic to see so much progress on so many fronts. And of course this level of responsiveness and transparency in a bank is unprecedented and makes being part of it so exciting.
#FullMonzo once joint accounts arrive!

Here’s a sneak peek.

The Spotify one is a recurring card payment. We’ll roll these out with the most common merchants on our system that use this type of payment, so stuff like Netflix.

The other two are upcoming predicted Direct Debits :grinning:
