Currency cards

The easy way to pay

Debit and currency cards make spending simple and paying easy, wherever you are, in person, on the phone and online (subject to status).

Debit and Currency cards

Sterling Debit card

Making paying easy

A debit card makes spending simple, wherever you are in the world. It's the easy way to pay in person, over the phone or over the internet.

Purchases

Look out for the logo on your card - it means you can use your debit card to pay for goods and services. And you can use it for cashback too.

Travelling abroad

As long as you have your card with you, there's no need to carry large amounts of cash. In fact, you can use your card to pay for goods and services, and withdraw cash at cash machines, at millions of places across the world.

Safe and secure

Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode helps protect your card against unauthorised use when you shop online by requesting a One Time Passcode on certain transactions.

How it works

  1. Shop online as usual and visit the checkout
  2. Enter your card details
  3. If the website uses `Verified by Visa` or `MasterCard SecureCode`, a message may tell you that the bank or organisation that issued your card is asking for a One Time Passcode
  4. Select whether you wish this passcode to be sent to your mobile, email address or via a voice message to your landline and we will send the passcode to you
  5. Enter the passcode on the website, click 'Submit' and your identity is confirmed

The One Time Passcode is specific to the current transaction and it is valid for 8 minutes from the time that it is sent to you.

Please keep your contact details with us up to date, so if verification is requested we can quickly send you a One Time Passcode.

Card activation

  • Online - simply log in to your online banking service, select 'Cards' from the main menu, then click on 'Activate a new debit card' and follow the onscreen instructions. If you are not registered for Online Banking, why not sign up today.
  • Over the phone – one of our Telephony agents will activate your debit card for you.
  • By post – please return the card activation slip you received with your debit card.
  • In branch – please hand in the card activation slip at your local branch.

If you are receiving a replacement debit card you will not need to activate it unless you are also receiving a replacement PIN.
