Common Questions

If I migrate to the new system, will I have to manually input all my payee details?

No, we will migrate across your payee details from the fax and phone system.


You will be able to delete/amend payees at your own convenience with no cost.

Can I add additional users to Autopay Online?

Yes, this can be done once the primary administrator has completed the initial system activation, full guidance and support will be available within Autopay Online.


Access can be restricted or allocated to each payment profile you create. 


Users will only be able to see the payments and history for the profiles they have been given access to.

My accountant or 3rd party currently processes my wages, can I give them access to the new system?

Yes, but we recommend a signatory or senior person at the business retains primary administrator access to Autopay Online.


You can create profiles for different payments: for example supplier payments or wages.

How will my transactions appear on my statement?

Transactions will appear as one entry on the statement with the narrative: D/D Autopay Online - the details of individual payments will be held on the system and accessed via the reports. 

What is a Multi-Factor Authentication Key Fob?

The Multi-Factor Authentication Key Fob is a small device generating a one off code every 30 seconds. This code will used as part of your log in and when making payments on Autopay Online.

Can I send a Multi-Factor Authentication Key Fob to a different address?

For security reasons, only the business address held on Bank records will be used.

How does my credit limit work?

When you move to Autopay Online, your credit limit will change to a 2 day rolling limit, which brings it in line with the Bacs 3 day cycle. 


As part of Autopay Online you will be able to check how much of your available credit limit you have left for each payment date for the next 31 days. 


If you were not aware you had a credit limit, and/or don't believe that reflects your needs please contact your Relationship Manager or Support team to discuss your requirements.   

When will you switch off my access to the legacy phone/fax Autopay?

Once you have activated Autopay Online and made your first payment, or after the date in your letter (which ever happens first).
