All UK banks and building societies should be set up for Faster Payments soon. In the meantime, we recommend you ask the payee if they accept other kinds of payments, such as:

  • Debit card
  • Credit card (excluding other credit cards or loans)
  • Cheque
  • Direct Debit

 

If you can't pay by card or Direct Debit, you may be able to pay by CHAPS electronic payment instead. CHAPS payments are processed straight away, though there will normally be a charge for this payment. This can be arranged through your branch.

App permissions

Why does the app require access to my phones location, call service and contacts etc?
To enable some features in the Mobile app to work, it needs to access the phones location, call service and contacts etc. For instance, when using Pay Your Contacts, the app needs to have access to your contacts so you can choose the number straight away, and send money. Alternatively, you will need to type a number every time you want to make a payment. In another instance, if you use Near Me to locate a branch or cash machine near you, the app will ask you to allow access to your phone location, so it can give you accurate results.
