I’ve noticed when using my Monzo card to withdraw cash from a UK ATM, the screen shows
Your card issuer may charge a fee. Do you want to continue?
Obviously I’m aware that Monzo doesn’t charge to withdraw cash so I press ‘Yes’ and continue with the transaction. I’d always assumed the screen is triggered as Monzo is currently a pre-paid card, and would disappear when it converts to a standard debit card.
However, Starling’s debit card also triggers the same screen and I’m now wondering what it is that causes it to display (is it to do with being a member of Link?), and will Monzo be able to eliminate it once full current accounts are launched?
None of my other cards from UK banks (and one building society) trigger it and it is a little annoying when it interrupts the transaction. Anyone here or from Monzo know about how the ATMs work and if it can be banished?
