How can we help you?

A standing order is when you tell us to pay a fixed amount to someone straight from your account at regular intervals. The money is taken from your account automatically on a fixed date and will show up on your statement.

Using your mobile app

  1. Log into the mobile app
  2. Tap ‘Payments’ on the bottom of the home screen
  3. Make sure the account displayed is set to the account where the standing order is to be paid from. You can swipe to change accounts or tap 'Change account'.
  4. Tap ‘Regular Payments’
  5. Tap ‘Standing orders’
  6. Tap ‘Create standing order’
  7. Tap Choose person or Business
    • Under ‘Choose Payee’ – When ‘Payee’ is selected this shows an existing payee that has been added through online banking previously using a card reader. (To send a Standing Order to a new payee, please use Online Banking)
    • ‘Company’ – (E.g., Regular Bill payment)
    • Account’ – You can Choose one of your other accounts held.
  8. Follow the on screen steps to set up the description, amount and payment intervals
  9. Review and confirm the details

Using online banking

You will require a card-reader and a card you can use with that reader to complete this process. However, if you are registered for biometrics you will require your mobile app

  2. Select 'Payments & transfers' from the main menu.
  3. Under Standing orders click 'Create a new standing order'.
  4. Enter the details of the company or personal you are wanting to pay and click 'Next'.
  5. You will then be informed that the details entered either match, close match or don't match the person you are looking to pay. You can choose to go back and re-enter these details or if happy to continue tick that you understand the risk and click 'Next'.
  6. You can then change the name that will appear on your statement, enter a payment reference and set how long you want the standing order to run for. Then click 'next'.
  7. Select the account you want the standing order to take the funds from, the payment amounts, date and frequency.
  8. You will now see a screen confirming the details you have selected. You will then be asked to authorise this payment using your card reader or mobile app. Follow the onscreen instructions and click 'Confirm'.
