Does Monzo has an official statement for the merchant data for transactions from ticket machines in railway stations?
A few example screenshots of ticket machine transactions in railway stations:
The respective merchant codes for these transactions are:
Since, as far as I’m aware, individual stations do not have their own logos, it makes sense for the logo of these transactions to be the logo of the company which runs the station/ticket machine (eg: Southern Railway, South Western Railway). NB: I’m not sure if some of the larger railway stations are run by one company.
For the rest of the merchant data, I’ve come up with two options.
Option 1 - name = company
Name of transaction = name of company which runs the station/ticket machine (eg: Southern Railway, South Western Railway).
All transactions in railway stations run by the same company are under the same merchant profile.
Address includes the station’s name (eg: Wimbledon Station, The Broadway, London, SW19 7NL).
Option 2 - name = station
Name of transaction = name of the station (eg: Redhill Station, Dorking Station, Wimbledon Station).
Each individual station has it’s own merchant profile.
Address does not include the station’s name (eg: The Broadway, London, SW19 7NL).
If Monzo don’t have an official line for this, which option do people think is best?
NB: Personally, I prefer option 2.
