A look at the details

    • You can make payments to your credit card account at any time, but you need to pay at least the minimum amount shown on your statement each month by the due date. Your minimum payment is either 2.5% of your balance plus any interest and fees or £5 – whichever is higher.
    • If you can't pay the whole statement balance, it's a good idea to pay as much as you can, as it may help to keep any interest costs down.
    • If you only make the minimum payment each month, it'll take longer and cost you more to pay off your balance.
    • If you miss or make a late payment, you are likely to be charged a late fee and damage your credit rating. You could also lose any promotional rates on your credit card and have to pay the standard interest rate instead.
    • Set up a regular Direct Debit payment and we’ll automatically claim your selected payment amount when it’s due.
    • If a Direct Debit isn’t taken for 37 months, it will become inactive, and your bank or building society will remove the details from their systems. If this happens, you’ll need to set up a new one.
    • You can also make payments, instead or in addition to a Direct Debit, from a bank account, with a debit card, by cheque or with cash at a branch. 
    • If you choose to make one-off payments, just make sure that the method you use will get your payment to us on time. 
  • In addition to fees and charges, you could lose any promotional rates which apply to your account if you miss a payment. In that situation, your standard account interest rates and fees will apply. Missing a payment could also affect your credit score and ability to borrow in future, so it’s important to stay on top of things and manage your account well.

    You need to make at least the minimum payment shown on your statement each month, and make sure that it reaches your account by the due date.

    • You can change your payment due date to better suit your needs. For example, if you usually receive your salary later than your due date falls.
    • The fastest way to do this is through Internet Banking on a desktop or laptop computer. 
    • To use Internet Banking, log in or register to get started. From your credit card account summary, select ‘More actions’, then ‘Paying your credit card’. Here, select ‘Request payment due date change’.
    • Just be aware, your change may apply to a future payment, rather than the next one, depending on when you make your request.
  • You may be aware that different interest rates apply to portions of your balance, varying based on transaction type, and whether the standard or any promotional rates apply. Your latest credit card statement includes a summary of the interest rates which apply to your account.

    As soon as transactions show on your monthly statements, those with a higher-interest rate will be paid before any lower-rate balances, including any promotional rates that might be finishing soon.
    Balances with the same interest rate will be paid off in this order:

    1. Cash transactions (ATM or over the counter withdrawals).
    2. Card purchases.
    3. Balance and money transfers.
    4. Default fees, including interest and other charges added.

    For each balance type, the oldest transactions, along with any related fees, charges and insurance, will be repaid first.

  • You can make additional payments at any time to reduce your balance and any interest costs, but it’s important to understand how interest is charged and when it applies, particularly if you plan to pay off your balance in full.

    Because interest is calculated daily and charged to your credit card statement when it’s produced each month, you may need to pay an amount of ‘residual interest’. This covers the interest calculated on your balance in the days between your statement being issued and you making a full statement balance payment.

    Note that you can’t overpay to cover any potential residual interest. The amount may vary based on the interest rates which apply to portions of your outstanding balance, so the best thing to do it look out for your next statement and pay any outstanding interest then.

    We don’t charge further interest when there’s only interest left to pay.
