You can now pay cash into your Monzo account!

For First Direct: go to any HSBC-operated ATM and deposit cash directly into the account.


The point was 9-5. I work a 7-5 and can use the post office on a weekday and at the weekend. I pass 3 on the home from work, all in newsagents.

Again, my views on paying for depositing are well known for socio-economic reasons of the area of the UK that I live in. I will not rehash them.

I agree - not sure if you misread. I meant Post Office counters based in local shops (not PayPoint).

When paypoint was announced I thought it was a great idea as there are loads of them… but it seems that attempting to deposit cash means a potential argument with a shopkeeper so to me that’s out - I have a low threshold for hassle when it comes to these things.

Given the local post office has one counter and last time I needed a postal order it took 40 minutes during my lunch hour due to the queues, I don’t really see it as an option for cash deposits.

Not an urgent need for me, but I still would like somewhere to deposit cash so a solution to the problem in the future - legacy banks have all closed their branches here except Barclays (I expect they’ll be gone in the next year) so there’s a bit of an untapped market for whoever works it out.

Just went to my local coop and it worked great, no issues and got the notification instantly! Even my girlfriend was impressed!

I remember once I had to deposit money in Santander but Thier machine had ran out of envelopes, luckily enough I was also a nationwide customer and the branch was directly across the street, so across I pop and got a deposit envelope which I then used in the Santander machine… :grinning::grinning::grinning: (It may have been abbey national at the time) I was a regular customer at the time and the next time I was in they told me that they found it very funny…
