At the moment my Salary goes into my old bank in order to meet their criteria for certain perks.
Are there any plans to allow standing orders to be set up externally to be paid directly into a Goal?
Currently, I’d have a standing order to transfer my “spending” money and a fixed mount for goals - I’d then have individual schedules in each goal to pay money in.
If I make a change to this I need to adjust the schedule and also change the amount my old bank sends over with each standing order.
It would be nice if I could split this out to multiple standing orders at my old bank so that
- Spending money goes to my account as normal
- Standing order from old bank direct into Holiday goal
- Standing order from old bank direct into Bills goal
- Standing order from old bank to Entertainment goal
This means i only need to change the standing order at the source for the goal that I’m changing and it makes it easier for doing one-off transfers too - I can just transfer direct to a goal rather than putting it on my main balance and then manually adding it to a goal
I think this would be useful for dropping pots of money aside and help budgeting for things like car insurance annually etc for people who dont get their whole salary paid into Starling.
What’re everyone’s thoughts?
