Making Monzo: Pay Anyone


(Naji Esiri) #1

Pay Anyone

Status: Coming Soon

Pay anyone, even if they don’t have a Monzo account currently


Pay Anyone is now available for testing in Monzo Labs! Read the latest update here, and let us know what you think.

This link’s broken :pensive:


#3

Doesn’t appear to be enabled in labs yet. Was this a premature post…?


#4

I’m trying to activate it in Labs, but it’s not there yet?


(Marcus Nailor, Hot Coral Detective) #5

Perhaps it’ll be here with the next app updates :thinking:

Looking forward to seeing it in action anyways :smile:


#6

I LOVE IT.

What

Body is not unclear, discourse


#7

Discourse does get pissy when you do a short reply. Is that restriction something that can be turned off?


(Naji Esiri) #8

We’ll add the link as soon as it’s ready, sorry, posted a bit early!


(Stephen Early) #9

Can’t wait to find out how this works!


#10

Used it with my sister last night :raised_hands::raised_hands:

This will be very interesting to see.

So would i be safe in saying this is a link where we pre-authorise the amount to be taken?
And then it will be the receiver will insert there details in a pull manner rather than a push manner?

Sort of like a monzo-you instead of monzo-me*

*Patent pending monzo, have to pay me a fee to use that name


#13

Indeed! And it’s a unique link so can’t be reused.


#14

What happens if your balance drops below the amount you’ve sent, before it has been claimed?


#15

Presumably it’s ring fenced, a bit like a pending card payment?


#16

Indeed it is! For 7 days :blush:


#17

Would I be right in assuming this is superceding PayM which was on the old roadmap?


#18

Can you cancel it within the 7 days (if it hasn’t been claimed)?

(Apologies for all the questions!)


#19

I LOVE QUESTIONS.

You can’t cancel it in the app at the moment, but we’re working on getting it cancelled by a COp, I presume if we get loads of requests it will filter it’s way down to the app

@Peter_G, what’s PayM? :thinking: JOKE - this is so much better, but I have no idea about the replacement on the roadmap, I presume it does.

Oh @BethS … sending your sister “Pot money” may be taken the wrong way :laughing:
