I just discovered that I can request a payment from another user directly (instead of sending a Monzo.me link) so that the request appears directly in their feed. This is fantastic! However, it could use a bit of improvement:
The reason that until now I didn’t know this feature existed, is because it’s accessed by tapping on the person in the ‘Pay’ tab, and doesn’t appear in the ‘Request’ tab. I assume/hope this will be cleared up in the imminent payment screen redesign.
The person I requested money from doesn’t remember getting an alert. The only way they would know I requested money is if I tell them or if they happen to check their fees. Obviously I think there should be an alert.<\del>
After I’ve sent the request, it doesn’t appear anywhere in my app, so I have no proof it’s been sent, and nowhere to track it. I think this should appear in the same place as the bill splitting requests. But it needs to be somewhere.
Edit: Second point was wrong!
