In 2018, we partnered with Monzo to power international payments for their customers. In 2021, we saw how much users loved the convenience, and with the help of our customers feedback, we went back to the Monzo Wise lab to upgrade & create an even better experience for our customers.
One year later, we’re listening… You asked, and we delivered. We’re excited to announce that Monzo Business customers can now send international payments, without ever having to leave the Monzo app.
Monzo’s mission is to make money work for everyone, and now, thanks to the Wise partnership, business customers can pay invoices, employees and contractors in record time, making managing money even easier than before.
From today, over 100,000 of Monzo’s business customers will have access to cheaper, faster transfers abroad at their fingertips from the convenience of the Monzo app. The first of its kind in the UK, our partnership now allows all Monzo customers, both business and personal, to send money in 32 currencies such as USD, EUR, GBP & CAD from within the security and convenience of their app.
Managing cashflow and knowing the true cost of sending money overseas is critical for businesses. Through the partnership, Monzo customers have full transparency on fees and the mid market rate, making it easier and simpler for customers sending money abroad.
