I love to automate as much of my life as possible, and Monzo is fantastic at helping do that in regards to finances, so much so that I recently did the account switch thanks to bills from pots.
In order to help me keep on top of my finances, I allocate money each month for petrol which I keep safely in a pot so that I don’t spend it and was looking for a way to move money from the pot after a fuel up. I turned to IFTTT for this. I found an applet that transfers all “Transport” spending from a pot into the account.
When paying after i have fuel (in the petrol shop), everything works great. The payment is taken, and the money is moved from the pot as intended to cover it.
However, I prefer to pay at pump which causes an issue.
IFTTT triggers when the transaction goes through, so (in most cases) IFTTT triggers at the authorisation stage and so wants to withdraw £99 from the pot.
I’m looking for a way to trigger the withdrawal only once the amount has been confirmed.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance
