THREE MONTHS l have that card and nothing
Blomfield said they had high hopes for the Monzo.me feature — a web link that lets anyone send a Monzo user money. “But it drives maybe a hundred users,” he said.
This doesn’t fill me with hope
“When we do product feedback sessions, we need to make sure these people are a diverse representation of our customer base, and not just tech nerds in Shoreditch. It’s easy to just grab three dudes with dodgy beards off the street and see what they think,” Blomfield said.
The recent presentation in Brighton was notable for the lack of diversity. This was really disappointing.
It definitely feels like an exciting time to be in banking (who would’ve thought?)
It’s as though they’ve been reading what I’ve been saying.
I have only met a Monzo card in the wild once in Manchester (just this month!), but I’ve seen it a lot in London. It’s a great convo starter imo, I’ve had random people tap me on the shoulder or speak to me when I’m paying at bars and clubs and tell me how cool it looks.
I got my friend to sign up to Monzo (she’s still on the waiting list though because she did it too late) because she was amazed at the monzo.me link thing. She loves how convenient it is to pay someone. “It’s like magic!” she said and to think I’ve been hyping instant notifications, travel options, budgeting, and the thing that manages to convince her is monzo.me!
What was the turnout like?
I guess you have not bumped into me yet! But you are right, I’ve not seen anyone else in Manchester use one yet.
Saw someone with a Monzo card in Besty and Spinky’s on the Isle of Wight a couple of months ago.
I see plenty of cards in London, also it got plenty of attention when I was in the states.
Not surprised monzo.me isn’t get much use, its like the PayPal.me links, I use PP a lot, but never get links from others.
I don’t remember when was the last time I used monzo.me. I converted friends to use Monzo, so it’s Monzo-to-Monzo payments now.
I need to get flashing this thing then - a date wouldn’t go amiss…
