Just purchased a couple things on Amazon and noticed that in my feed they were separated as two transactions with different merchant information (in this example, the logo is different). This prompted me to take a 5 minute look at my feed and I felt like there were enough issues to warrant me opening a thread - it feels like even after all this time, these issues still come back and plague the app.
From what I can tell one of these is Amazon Marketplace and one of these is Amazon Retail (the “normal” one)
From what I can tell one of these is through Domino’s website and one of these is through Domino’s mobile app.
The transaction description on these are identical, but they were very likely done at different self-serve tills.
Okay I’ll give Monzo some leeway here cause I know Uber change their transaction identifiers more times than I care to acknowledge but still
I’ve left my favourite until last
This is a reservation for a hotel at “The Hub by Premier Inn”, not a very expensive trip to my local convenience store. I believe this one is just genuinely incorrect… regexes are hard.
In the interest of making this a tiny bit helpful for any Monzo employees who’d like to fix these examples, here’s some API information for you in order of appearance in this thread:
The actual merchant metadata looks correct (labelled hotel etc) but the merchant name and logo are both incorrect (which is what I actually see as a user)
CC: @kieranmch as I know you’ve done some great work into looking how Monzo can manage this moving forward.
