Back in November, we announced the beginning of our Alpha Preview with space for 500 Alphas. We’ve now given out all 500 and testing has been fantastic—Mondo has now been used in over 50 different countries and over 3,800 different retailers!

Mondo Alpha Update

What’s next?

We have a limited run of 2500 more Alpha accounts ready to go with improvements we’ve made as a result of feedback from the first Alphas. This afternoon we are sending out invites for more than 1000 of these places to our waiting list—you can register for the waiting list on our homepage.

The Alpha is a limited edition print run with a unique design—once they’re gone, they’re gone. After that, we’ll move into a broader Beta trial with all of the feedback we’ve gathered over the past months.

Available across the UK!

Mondo will be going on an Alpha roadshow with accounts to give out in major cities across the UK. You can vote for Mondo to come to your city at—we’d love to meet you all! #BringMeMondo 😀

What is an Alpha?

Everything we said in November still applies and I encourage you to read that post to understand why we’re doing an Alpha test and what that means in practice here. It’s important to remember we are not a bank yet—your testing is helping us build one!

We’d love to have you on board. You can sign up to the waiting list at and follow us @getmondo. Please email us anytime at with ideas, suggestions or questions—we read and reply to every one!

We recently updated our name to Monzo! Read more about it here.
