Superb service so far.

I’ve just opened my account and have had two very positive experiences so far. The first was after opening the account, I linked it to my FreeAgent account. FreeAgent recognised me straight away and because I’ve just paid my subscription for this year, told me I would get a refund. That was Saturday, Monday morning I had a notification saying that £146 had been paid into my account for the remaining 11 months of the subscription - Monday Win!!
The other positive was after phoning this morning with an issue that had reared its head after trying to update my debit debit with the HMRC, the person who dealt with me (Billie) couldn’t have been more helpful and got my issue sorted out very quickly.
The only thing stopping me closing my old business account now is the lack of being able to send and receive international payments. Hopefully, this is something that Mettle are working on.
I’m looking forward to a great relationship with Mettle.

Excellent app 4 small business - highly recommended

Can’t praise this app enough. Run a small business. The app is very useful and intuitive. The mettle account comes with Apple Pay integration which none of the big 5-6 banks seem to be offering to business customers. To save having to carry card around everywhere. iPhone suffices. Also comes with freeagent accounting and so saves me a lot of time being able to categorise transactions of the freeagent app on the go. Highly highly recommended. Also notification pops up every time you use the app to ask for receipt upload and transaction categorisation at the time and this is also very useful.

Great but not fantastic yet!

Love it - made my business banking so much easier and has lots of tools on a platform that makes sense! Haven’t used the invoicing features yet, I already have a system and can’t be bothered to look at changing it. So, the bad parts that keep this App ‘Just Great’ (1) no way ‘at all’ to pay in Cheques, once or twice a year I need to pay one in, but when you find you can’t it’s a massive ball ache (the costomer is 80 and hasn’t got internet banking) don’t understand why I can’t do it at a NatWest counter? .. (2) not able to use Apple Pay, just really annoying! (3) Can’t add a ‘Trading As’ name to the account. I have two lines of work Media and Electrical and would like to invoice as ***** Media or ***** Electrical. My last bank did it not sure why Mettle can’t let me be ***** Media Trading as **** Electrical? 3 small things but all very annoying when trying to run a business 🤔

Hi Maximus, Thanks for sharing your feedback, it's great to hear you're finding business banking easier with your Mettle account.

We're always looking at ways to make running your business easier. That's why we're working hard to introduce new features such as Apple/ Google pay and cheques as soon as possible.
