Yet another reason not to thank my parents for giving me the middle names Peter Lowater @OJFord
If anyone wants to test sending money to someone else, feel free to send money to https://monzo.me/alexanderpeterlowatersherwood
Also, I was wondering whether this would enable users to fund Monzo cards from credit cards & having accidentally tested that - it doesn’t.
The first time I’ve used in browser Apple Pay though, very cool!
You don’t get a receipt (see Stuart’s screenshot) if you use this payment method though. You still receive a receipt if you use this payment method.
Lastly, this is relatively minor but when I used my debit card to make a payment to myself, I used the name on my card Mr Alexander … & Monzo has picked up the Mr as if it was my first name that causes a couple of problems in the app (outlined in red) -
that may become a bigger issue once you’ve received payments from two different people with Mr / Ms etc. at the beginning of their name on their card…
Obviously it would be better if Monzo filtered out common titles from the beginning of sender’s names.
To avoid this, users can ask senders not to include their title or middle names when completing their card details. The payment was still authorised for me, when using a Lloyds card.
I’ve now ended up with payments from what Monzo sees as 4 different people -
so perhaps Monzo could link payments together based on card / account number in the future?
Again, these are only minor changes but I thought I’d point out these potential improvements so that they can be considered.
