Setting your charger to "Public" makes it visible to all Monta users. Anyone can see your charger and anyone can charge at it. They will be charged the price you set and you will receive their payment to your Monta Wallet.
You will not be charged to use your own charge point. As your charger is public, you will need to manually start charging your car via our app. This way, we know when it's your car plugged to your charger and so we know to not charge you.
Or you can use our new feature where you can set a time from when you want your charger to be publicly available - all the other times it will be set to private. This will mean that you can schedule the charger to be "Private" for when you are at home (and get the benefits of Instant Start - start automatically when you plug in your car without even opening Monta App) and "Public" for when you are away.
