When will Monzo support Apple Pay?


(Katrina) #220

Taking the phone out my pocket takes the same amount of time as taking the card out my pocket.

With the phone, I have to either hold it over the reader with my thumb over the fingerprint reader, wait for the wallet app to load, them wait for it to read my fingerprint; or double tap the home button to open the wallet app and hold the finger a bit longer to read it, then hold it over the reader. This takes about 1-2 seconds before it is ready to read the card.

With the card, I just hold it over the reader and it works straight away.

Very few places other than the Apple Shop accept Apple Pay for transactions greater than £30, so you have to get your card out for them anyway.

Is the thumb/unlock thing optional? AndroidPay can work without even waking the screen on the phone and without unlocking it.


#222

Lock seems to be mandatory on iOS for Apple Pay, however Touch ID is pretty much instant and seamless in most cases.


(Katrina) #223

Yes, neither option I gave unlocks the phone, but you still need to validate with a fingerprint.

You can also unlock the phone, open the wallet app, select the card you want and validate it.

I’d disagree with the statement that not many places accept above the £30. I find the majority of places now do accept Apple Pay above the £30 limit. It’s just not advertised well at all.

Remember how annoying this was? But now it’s finally here :grin:

:point_up: :point_up: :point_up: annoying :wink:

Not really annoying I find the excuses to why not quite amusing :see_no_evil:

It’s like saying what’s the fuss about around having a mobile phone or a skyQbox when we have perfectly functioning phone booths and VHS recorders (80’s)

Let’s provide the Monzo members with what is readily available as a tool / aid that already exists on the street

Like waiting for it for months while every other bank supports it is not?


(Alex Sherwood) #231

That was a (not so) private joke with Danny :slight_smile: I know why people are frustrated. If you don’t like that comment, please ignore it!

Why not remove it rather than asking to ignore
This is an open forum

Dude it’s a running joke, no need to remove it.

Shippers
I’m not your dude

And I would like see Apple Pay on Monzo

I used apple pay with Barclays and it was a bliss.

Once anyone starts paying with the phone, using the a card feels like a step back which is actually what I am sacrificing for Monzo in the last weeks. Every. Single. Day. Every. Single. Transaction.

Feedback form the app is not worth it. Full stop.
Patience has a limit. Either get this out or will move back to Barclays.

I am looking at going back to Metro or actually using my Starling account.


(Gareth) #239

I just used Android Pay for the first time just yesterday, and did not experience this epiphany. But then, taking a phone out or taking a card out my pocket are similar for me. And I happen to know that Barclays was also ‘late’ for Apple Pay so I assume you were patient before.


(Roser Blasco) #240

You get used to it, specially if your hand lives attached to your phone, which may not be your case.


(Roser Blasco) #241

Thank you for the tip. I can see Metro has Apple Pay support: https://www.metrobankonline.co.uk/ways-to-bank/products/apple-pay/

Will have a look :smiley:
