So I went to Tesco today and used Apple Pay. The payment went through and I got a notification in the Monzo app.
The POS, however, did not think that it went through and wanted me to pay again. When the self-checkout assistant eventually came over, she told me to pay again and that the original transaction would eventually be refunded/ not actually be taken.
I am unable to challenge this payment in the application because, for all intents and purposes, it was a legitimate transaction until Tesco “undo?” it.
Now to the actual request… I would love to be able to go into the application and “follow” the status changes of a pending payment, this way I don’t need to keep checking it every 5 minutes to see if it is reversed or if they take the payment and I have to go back in to dispute it.
Obviously this would/shouldn’t be possible to do for none pending payments, but for any payments that could change status I think this could be really useful because I understand some of them can take over a week to clear.
As much as I like using the Monzo app, I don’t like having to scroll through the ever growing transaction list to find a specific Tesco payment.
