For those of you who for one reason or another can’t currently use Metal Pay, but want to stay up-to-date on what we’ve been cooking up, let’s get into it here!

Here’s what’s new:

🤘 Easier Payments: We’ve made sending payments more intuitive. Your payment method of choice is now one tap away. Bonus – you can now link 2 bank accounts!

Here’s one of the big milestones we’re working towards for 1.9.0:

🤘 Aliases. We understand that sometimes you want to make a payment or request a payment from someone you may have just met, or only know online. And maybe you don’t want to give them your phone number or name. With aliases, you won’t have to!
