What would make Monzo the perfect banking experience?

I think a few things for me.

Cashback, both on bills and on purchases, the latter offers that actually change and rotate.

Budget and summary actually merging into one and a slowdown of features. Only putting them in when they’re actually finished.

Oh and metal cards as an optional purchase, I would love that option. I miss mine.

EDIT: I forgot about pan device support. A proper iPad app and ability to login into both at the same time

With N26 does all the money, or all the liability belong to everyone using the account?

In Revolut the money legally belongs to one person, no matter who put it in the Group Vault.

So the inevitable next question is: Can the ‘owner’ withdraw Power of Attorney and keep all the money?

Slight de-rail, along with pot-to-pot transfers the feature request for Plus/Premium for Joint Accounts now has the most ‘joint’ (!) votes, out-voted overall only by Dark mode - which has been implemented.

Come on :monzo:

Cash back on transactions is just giving money away in a regulated interchange environment, if Liz Truss gets in, it might get get unregulated and banks might be tempted to pass it on, can’t see it otherwise unless you’re cash rich like JP Morgan.

As for getting rid of User Research, ha, do me a favour, it’s super useful, helps you build good product, and stops you just building for your noisest users on a forum

I’m not sure that folk are being big picture enough here. It’s basic economics: if some cashback leads to greater revenues overall, and still a profit cut on those greater revenues, then it is economically rational for the business. It’s a route to grow profits, not a free money free for all.

No one suggested getting rid of user research. Go back and read what I said!

Cheque imaging and the ability to use Post Offices for cash/cheques

The only thing I would like is images on payees and better merchant images that get processed.

On Post Offices, would free PayPoint be acceptable? What if it was also chargeable at the Post Office?

PayPoint doesn’t work well enough. I’d accept a post office charge.

I would want free access at Post Offices as per other banks.

Free PayPoint might be an alternative but this would be inferior in my view to Post Offices as I don’t believe you can pay in cheques and the current lack of knowledge PayPoint staff have to deal with cash deposits.

Starling charge for the post office now don’t they? Over and above certain amounts?

Which banks can you pay in cheques at the Post Office? I don’t think you can with Starling?

I take the point about lack of knowledge, though. (Go to the Co-Op - it also prevents retailers losing money from PayPoint).

Yes they do. You can deposit £1000 for free then they charge 0.7%.

Soon all banks will charge for this. The Post Office has renegotiated the contracts, and soon it’ll be the monopoly on paying in, once the banks close their branches.

Joint account parity.

for me

  1. custom spending categories for everyone - costs the bank nothing, people love it

  2. cheque processing - would mean I, and many others, wouldnt need that starling account

  3. web browser version for desktop computers

  4. slight improvements to the interface

  5. knowing the help facility is speedy when you need it in times of a major problem
