Pay someone new

How to pay someone for the first time online.

You can make a payment from your account using our app or by Internet Banking. Your account has daily limits which you can view via the 'payments limits link' when you make a payment. 

Tips to remember:

  • Your account has daily limits. You can see these when you make a payment - just use the 'payments limits' link.
  • Write the account name exactly as it's shown on their bank account statement or your bill if you’re paying a company.
  • Always check the sort code and account number of the person or company you’re paying.
  • If you're paying a utility bill you may need to add a reference from your provider.

Frequently asked questions

  • Confirmation of Payee (CoP), is an account name checking service to help you make sure your payment goes to the right place.

    These checks are designed to help stop payments going to the wrong account by spotting possible mistakes and adding extra security steps to prevent fraud.

    How CoP helps you make payments with confidence

    The CoP service has been introduced across the banking industry as an extra way to help tackle fraud and keep customers’ money safe.

    The service helps make sure payments go to the right account by checking the name and account details all match before a payment is sent. This reduces the risk of making a mistake and paying the wrong person, and can help to avoid payment scams.

  • You need to be careful when you make a payment online. Fraudsters can pretend to be someone you trust or offer things like fake goods to try and scam you.

    We’ll do as much as we can to protect you and reduce scams while you make genuine payments.

    To stay safe online, we have a code of conduct that can help to avoid payment scams.

    This code will help to protect you from scams and give you the chance of a fraud refund.

    When asking what your payment is for we can use our advanced systems to help us to fight fraud. We can use them to warn you about a scam before you make a payment and when you set up a new payee and/or amend an existing payee.

    If you get a warning, make sure you take suitable action to protect your payment. We may not refund your money if you ignore a warning and fail to act.
