The users also receive real-time feedback regarding their spending. In April 2017, the company received full UK banking license from the FCA and PRA, and currently operates as a fully authorised bank.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES:
Monzo offers a Mastercard (prepaid card) and a mobile app that can be used for paying money into the account. Additionally, it provides instant updates about user balance and handy notifications (including why a transaction was declined). Once a Monzo account has been created by the user, they are issued with a new debit card, and can transfer their full balance over to the account. Users can also make bank-to-bank transfers and direct debits, from their Monzo account.
