How do I make a payment to an account that doesn't accept Faster Payments?
All UK banks and building societies should be set up for Faster Payments soon. In the meantime, we recommend you ask the payee if they accept other kinds of payments, such as:
- Debit card
- Credit card (excluding other credit cards or loans)
- Direct Debit
If you can't pay by card or Direct Debit, you may be able to pay by CHAPS electronic payment instead. CHAPS payments are processed straight away, though there will normally be a charge for this payment. This can be arranged through your branch.
