Paying your credit card by debit card

You can do this online

  • Pay your credit card at any time with a debit card.
  • The payment should reach your credit card by the next working day.
  • You can make extra payments even if you have a Direct Debit set up.

Keep in mind:

If you make an extra payment, we may still collect your Direct Debit in full.

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. 
    • Debit card payments should reach your Bank of Scotland credit card account by the next working day.
    • You can only make one debit card payment per day to your credit card. You can use one of our other ways to pay if you need to make more than one payment per day.
    • 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.
