Frequently asked questions

Can I schedule different prices?

Yes, you can schedule to change the price of a Public charge point via the Monta Portal.


What is the difference between Public and Private charge points?

Accessibility:

  • Private charge points are available to the charge point owner and the Members of the Team, where the charge point is located.
  • Public charge points can be found by Monta users on the Monta map

Pricing:

  • Private charge point pricing is set on a Team member level. A Team Member price will be applied, even when the charge point is Public.
  • Public charge points have a set price that applies to all EV drivers who use the charge point, except for Team members, which have access to the charge point.

How do EV drivers find my charge point?

When you make your charge point Public, Monta users can find it on the Monta map. Here is a guide on how that works.

If you want to have your charge point available on other platforms, such as Google Maps, you need to upgrade your Monta plan to Business and enable Roaming. You can read more about this here.
