Paste and parse someone’s bank details to pay

(Oliver Bethell) #1

Problem: Bank details are often provided to me in a text or email and I have to use Notes to extract the account no / sort code / name and then enter into Monzo to complete the transaction.

Proposal: In the payments feature, have a paste feature that is able to suggest payment details based on parsing the text on the clipboard. Ie 8 digit number = account, six digit number (with or without separations) = sort code, etc. This would populate the payment details for the user to edit.

Would save time and reduce errors through manual data entry.

Sorry if this has been suggested already!

This is a really cool idea. Sainsbury’s had/has a similar thing on their online grocery shopping service: you can paste in a list of items in a text box (say from your notes app) and it will then search for each one in turn.
