I fully understand you pain @RyanKirk as I have used in the past NatWest for a year and I can truly say their internet banking and mobile app are the works I have used (and I have experienced banks from 3 countries now, Wester and Eastern Europe). Their system is very slow and I never fully understood what is the amount of money I actually have as usually payments too even 3 days to appear on my balance. I have since moved away from them and I am so happy.
Nevertheless, I see that Monzo is using them for international
Euro payments. Very interesting to see how that goes:
NatWest is currently our correspondent bank. This means that payments to Monzo from other European banks in Euro get to us via NatWest.
But even the Monzo team is skeptical as they actually recommend
Whilst we work to add the ability to send and receive international payments “natively”, through the app, we’d recommend using TransferWise for your international payments.
