We’ve been making progress with our new and exciting 2019 plans - from business accounts to Monzo Plus, here’s what we’ve been up to!

404 :man_shrugging:


#4

404 for me too. Although I did learn something new on that page haha.


(Sheri Farsani) #5

Sorry to hear that some of you have been getting 404s (but glad you learnt something new :grin:)!

We think we’ve found what might have been causing it - please try the link again and let me know if it works now :crossed_fingers:

Its working now…

Also please use the Oxford comma:

We started with EAT., Itsu, Pure and Pod -> We started with EAT., Itsu, Pure, and Pod

It makes it easier when reading lists :slight_smile:

That pesky publish button huh! :wink:

Nice to see these updates formalised!


(Sarcasm is the finest form of wit.) #8

What? I love Pure and Pod, my favourite of all the clean eating food pods around!


(Sheri Farsani) #9

Give me some credit, Gordon! :joy:


(Sarcasm is the finest form of wit.) #10

I only said it because I have done it many times myself! :man_facepalming::+1:

Weird, my KFC receipt looks dissimilar to the one in this blog post :eyes:

I lack:

  • VAT & VAT No
  • Card Last Four
  • AID
  • Receipt ID

Do different KFC’s offer slightly different data or is this a case of the mockup being different to the initial release? :slight_smile:


We’ll start by letting you see your balance, and we’ll find out what other information you’d find useful and work on adding that too.

Looks like the community has already made huge headway here and here on this matter :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Looks like transactions are the killer feature (after balance) that everybody has been raving about :wink:


Awesome post btw! Really looking forward to a Monzo-March… Marchzo, Monzarch ? :joy:

Any news on the accounts tab redesign that was first mooted on the Making Monzo twitter on December 1st? Is that part of the custom images change this month or something that is expected to land in April?


#13

I imagine it’s very soon for iOS. A lot of Android users already have it.

So, a custom image might even nudge you away from dipping into your savings.

So would locked pots :eyes:

Some incredible innovations here. Excited for the the American Express visibility and ISA’s to be released.

I would love for the American Express section to categorize spending like normal Monzo payments, but for American Express payments and potentially count towards your budgets. This would truly be the icing on the cake.


(Nathan) #18

Id say a next good step after the amex balance would be to show marcus balance :eyes:


(Rika Raybould) #19

The aim is to eventually show all your other balances in Monzo. One at a time though. :wink:


(Peter Shillito) #20

Yay more balances, like the “finalised available balance not including pots” aka the one overdrafts are calculated with? :pray: :sob:


(Mike Fuller) #21

I’m hoping that the link to Amex will be via an API rather than having to disclose username and password?https://developer.americanexpress.com
Interested in how you determined that American Express was the most popular card and not Mastercard or Visa and how you intend to link to other cards when Open Banking isn’t yet mandated to Credit Cards?
