Anyone seen this? Not sure how new this is (even though not launched yet):
Looks interesting, not heard about it before seeing your post
Neither had I.
I only came across it while complaining about how NatWest show transfers (no names, only references) so I couldn’t see which of my housemates had transferred me money and they said “but we will have this app soon”.
Well that rules out NatWest as a potential bricks & mortar / second bank for me. Seems a weird ommision.
On the Housemates app - it’s not clear to me if connecting to a bank via open banking is a necessity to use the app or if it’s an optional part of it. If the former I think they might struggle to get groups to use it.
Wait, so NW take a couple of days to add the payee name to your feed? Can you check if this is indeed the case with previous payments?
So looking at the first payment, which I got yesterday around 17:00 which initially was just the reference and not the name, it now has changed to the name of the person with the reference in the details.
I got another payment at about 19:13 and that still shows up as the reference and not the name.
