Back in August, when the news about OnlyFans banning explicit content was going around, I sent a tweet to @monzo, asking them to confirm their position on processing payments that relate to sexually explicit content. And whether that position would be changing in October when (at the time at least) Mastercard were going to be changing their terms.
I never received a reply from @monzo, but this has been a topic that I have returned to in my mind.
Under Monzo’s terms and conditions it does say that some payments will not take place if (and I quote): “we’re not legally allowed to make that transfer”.
I’ve had a quick search around the Community, but couldn’t find a topic that specifically addresses this.
Can someone from Monzo reply to clarify their position on processing payments that relate to sexually explicit content.
Should Mastercard introduce the changes that were talked to earlier this year, will Monzo accept those changes?
Or would Monzo enter into dialogue with Mastercard around their changes in their rules around what payments can be made and taken on their platform?
I would also be interested in what @monzo’s company stance is in relation to sex work - I have seen them being very supportive around sexual/gender identities on their Twitter account - and I am curious if they share that support for the sex work industry.
Thank you for your time
