[object Object] The Mercury Midsummer Spruce-Up: cards*, navigation, loading speeds, and more

Earlier this year we launched our brand new Cards page; we’ve already made it a little better.

Nicknames for debit cards are now live.* You can call your debit card Facebook Ads, Big J, Elon, or whatever else feels right. To edit your card’s name just head to the Cards page, select the card, and click More Options.

Edit Card Nickname

We’ve also hidden canceled debit cards from your dashboard. If you’d like to show your canceled cards, click the settings icon next to Card Status. While you’re on the Cards page, you can always create, replace, or cancel debit cards (physical or virtual). You can also freeze your card, set transaction and ATM limits, or change your card’s PIN.

Here’s other news from Mercury:

⏱️ 2x faster loading times

The Mercury dashboard and iOS app now load about 2x as fast. You can start a payment in the time it used to take our dashboard to load.

If you’re curious, you can read about how we made these improvements in this thread by Max, our CTO.

📣 Low balance alerts

We’ve added balance alerts that will send you an email when the balance in one of your accounts dips below your chosen threshold.

🔎 New navigation

We’ve tidied up our dashboard navigation. The bottom-left menu now gets you to documents and settings, and the bottom right question mark gets you to support.
