Plum Savings integration


(Andy) #22

Try and sign up on the web portal is the main Facebook messenger is not working :slight_smile:

I’ve tried but Monzo still isn’t available on my account. I don’t think it’s been activated yet.


#24

Does anyone here have experience with both Plum and Chip?
I’ve only used Chip.

I know the modes of interaction are different (Chip - dedicated app; Plum - FB Messenger) and there are different means of earning a return (Chip - interest of cash savings; Plum - invest in P2P loans and soon stock market funds). Apart from that, does anyone have any thoughts on differences or relative strengths/weaknesses of Plum and Chip?

Hey!

I came across this in the referral wiki:

Plum now works with Monzo, finally. It’s a great and easy way to save money; and earn interest (or invest in beta)

Not sure if it actually works, but might be useful :grin:


#26

Do you have to use Facebook? Just checked out the website and it asks me to install Facebook messenger everytime i try and signup


(brandon skerritt) #27

Yes :cry: I tried to use it but I’m very anti-facebook, I’m hoping they’ll release a stand alone app though


#28

You have to use Facebook messenger, but I think you can use Facebook messenger without a Facebook account.

According to their latest seeder they are looking at doing an app :slight_smile:


#30

Sadly nothing here yet on my messenger to let me connect :monzo:

Hi guys, you have to ask customer support to be enrolled on the beta!


#32

Someone had mentioned it was going fully love today but guess not :frowning:


#33

That’s :monzo: (and starling) live in plum bot :raised_hands:


(brandon skerritt) #34

Thank you!


(brandon skerritt) #35

Setting it up now :grin::grin: How many of you use RateSetter with it? Is it good?


(brandon skerritt) #36

Is anyone else stuck on the Monzo “securely linking your bank account”? Is it like a mini-DDOS effect?


#37

I’ve used Ratesetter on its own, but not via Plum.

Are you asking if Ratesetter is good or if the integration with Plum is good?


#38

Plum need to step up their social media communications because it’s not even mentioned on their twitter, but it was confirmed by the founder on Seedrs…

P.S. @brenda plum is now live


(Gareth) #39

The other thing I noticed, their help pages also don’t mention Monzo as a supported bank (at least when I last checked)


#40

Exactly, this help page concerning supported banks hasn’t been updated for 3 months.
This is unprofessional at the very least which is a shame because Plum have a great product/service that can resonate with people.

The mention of Ratesetter integration piqued my interest. I use it and Funding Circlre on and off - it’s actually something I’m hoping Monzo turns it’s hand to at some point.

But a Facebook Messenger bot? :cry: Just about the last interface I’d want to use.
