At Yolt, we love a surprise, but when it comes to managing money we're a huge fan of a spoiler-alert. Don't get us wrong, we like to have fun with finance, but we also believe that transparency is key to staying in control of your cash. It's always been our mission to provide useful insights about your spending, and our Bill tracker is just one of the ways we're able to do that. To give you a better understanding of your monthly outgoings, we designed this feature to recognise recurring transactions from specific merchants, automatically flag them and predict future payments.
How do I view my recurring transactions?
Head over to the Actions tab (the second icon on the menu bar), tap on the 'Track bills' block and you'll see a list of your Direct Debits and other committed spending, in date order. In one overview, you can see what's coming up, how much you'll pay and (perhaps most importantly) when the money is scheduled to leave your account.
How do I manage or edit recurring transactions?
Spotted a transaction that you'd like to set as recurring? No worries, just scroll to the last payment you made to that merchant, tap on it to open it up and you'll see three dots in the top right corner of the screen. From the edit menu, you'll be able to 'Mark as recurring'. Here you can update or add a custom description, correct the predicted amount, select the payment cycle as well as set a renewal date.
