I actually have 13 open accounts - but only 4 are currently active, the Primary and 3 Boosts.
The others are
4 effectively dead ex boosts, with nil balance.
Another 5 ex boosts, with £1 balance, awaiting some bits of interest in the next cycle, mid September. These will then join the dead ones, and be closed for housekeeping.
I even occasionally use the 7 day option (why not?), which is what most of the exes are.
Finally decided to make use of Zopa’s savings rates and went to do an instant bank transfer this evening. When I do the transfer (just £1 at the moment for testing), I am taken to my own bank (Virgin Money) to authorise, then back to Zopa. However, Zopa just shows a spinning wheel and does nothing. No money has left my current account and no money is in Zopa. Will raise with support tomorrow but just wondering if anyone else has or has had a similar issue. I am using an iPhone 14 Pro on iOS 16.0.1. If I transfer from first direct it seems to work fine so would have a workaround.
Always a worry before transferring a wack of savings over.
The apparently failed £1 from my Virgin Money account I tried to send to Zopa last night via instant transfer has just been taken… and has arrived in Zopa after the usual 20 minutes. Me no likely this .
They outright refused to take money from my virgin account as the branding does not match - They expect money coming from Yorkshire bank/Clyesdale bank, not Virgin Money, so they reject it and send it back, this is after the verification process too - it’s all a clusterfuck with Virgin Money
Taking money from Monzo (via bank transfer or truelayer) was not an issue
Source : MSE Forum, allegedly a response on Twitter from Zopa in relation to a question on rate rise following recent BoE increase.
“Our smart saver accounts were recently increased on the 13th of September. There is currently no scope to increase the amount again this month. We will inform everyone publicly when this is due to change again.”
