Richard’s just shared some more details about the improvements that’re on the way, when the debit cards are rolled out along with the current accounts. There isn’t a dedicated topic with the details of what’s changing so I thought I’d create one
- Offline support means no more declined payments for things like car park / railway station ticket machines & Pay at the Pump
- I’ve been told by @richardr that the contactless Magstripe support should result in significantly fewer declines in the US
- I assume that data storage means the capability to do things like storing season tickets on your Monzo card (bearing in mind that the storage space is relatively limited)
it looks like they’re not far from being ready either

There’s some more pictures of the card’s design here.
We also already knew that there’s not going to be account numbers or sort codes on the cards -
& that user’s names will be on the cards, with exceptions -
