Monzo Teams Up With Deliveroo For New “Split the Bill” Feature

Crowdcube success and fintech company Monzo announced it has teamed up with Deliveroo for a new feature, Split the Bill. Deliveroo designer, James Storer, revealed details about the new app feature:

“At Deliveroo, ‘split the bill’ is probably one of our most requested features, and it’s been on our roadmap since I joined the company over two years ago. In that time, we’ve done email surveys, phone interviews and multivariant tests to try and definitively prove its worth. We also ran a really cool user research session by inviting a group of friends to our research lab (set up to look like a living room) and asking them to relax, watch Netflix and play video games while placing an order. This let us observe their group ordering habits and see how they split the cost between themselves.”

Monzo reported to test how a split the bill feature might work, the Deliveroo team has built a solution that allows customers to share their link from within the Deliveroo app. Monzo stated:

After placing an order, Deliveroo customers are given the option to split the bill using Monzo. When first using the feature, customers are prompted to save their username, and then can choose to split the bill evenly with as many people as they like. Once Deliveroo has calculated the amount each person owes, a link is generated, with the amount owed and restaurant name already filled in. People can then share their link through WhatsApp, Messenger, or any other option in the Android share sheet.”

Monzo then added:

For Deliveroo, it’s a simple but effective solution that they’re using to test how a fully-fledged ‘split the bill’ feature would fare. For us, it’s an exciting example of the kinds of clever integrations that might be possible in the future. Here at Monzo, we’re building tools that others can connect to. That will solve people’s problems and allow us to achieve our vision of becoming the financial hub for people’s lives.
