    Other ways to set up a Direct Debit

    The quickest way to set up a Direct Debit is through Online Card Services. However, if you prefer to speak to an adviser, you can call us on 03456 062 062. Lines are open Mon-Fri 8am-10pm, or Sat-Sun 8am-6pm.

    You’ll need your 16-digit credit card number when calling us.

    What happens next?

    When your Direct Debit is in place, it will show on your statement and Online Card Services. Until then, continue to make payments using one of the other methods. You can change the way you pay your Direct Debit at any time.

    Important things to remember:

    • Once your Direct Debit is in place, you need to make sure there’s enough money in your bank or building society account when we take your payment each month. If there isn’t, fees and charges could apply.
    • To help you manage your account we might make changes to your payment amount. 
    • If your payment doesn’t cover the minimum payment, we may increase it. We may also increase it if you have any missed payments
    • We may reduce your payment if it's too high and your account is going into credit.

One off payments

If you’d like to be in full control, or make additional payments on top of your Direct Debit, you’ve got a few options. 

Just make sure at least the minimum amount is covered each month and that the payment method used will get your payment to us before the due date.

You can make additional payments at any point to reduce your balance and any interest costs.

Bear in mindIf you make additional payments to your account during the month we may still collect your Direct Debit in full.

Key points about credit card payments

You need to make at least the minimum payment each month, by the due date detailed on your latest statement. It’s a good idea to pay as much as you can to keep any interest costs down. 

  • Set up a regular Direct Debit payment and we’ll automatically claim your selected payment amount when it’s due. 
  • You can also make payments from a bank account, with a debit card, by cheque, or on the phone.
  • If you choose to make one-off payments, just make sure that the method you use will get your payment to us on time. 
  • You can request to change your payment due date to better suit your needs, e.g. if you usually receive your salary later than your due date falls.

If you find you are worrying about money, managing your debt or the rising cost of living and energy prices, you really aren’t alone.
