As user of MoneyWiz, they rely on Yodlee and SaltEdge for online banking integration. Neither supported Monzo, so you can request support directly with SaltEdge. I did this twice, I think. Once back in 2017 and having heard nothing, again in June this year.
I just had two emails this morning - nearly identical. Both saying: “We’re happy to announce that the bank you’ve requested is already supported by Salt Edge.” (my emphasis)
Odd wording aside, there’s no sign of direct support and I wonder if this isn’t SaltEdge just clearing out the EU bank requests knowing they should theoretically support Open Banking this month.
Which begs two questions:
- What’s the latest position, as the deadline looms, on Open Banking in Monzo - the web pages flit about the position to reflect the changes to the goalposts. @simonb said in February:
My understanding is that we comply with the Open Banking standards and then some.
In practice, is this being used by (many) other aggregators yet? I note NatWest appear to be using it.
- Has anyone managed to use SaltEdge to connect to Monzo and was it ‘native’ or Open Banking?
