Can I make a payment in the mobile app using just an account number and sort code?

You can make a payment in the mobile app using just an account number and sort code, and you don't need to set up the payee in Online Banking first.

With 'Pay Someone New' you can send a maximum of £250 in a single payment. If you are making a number of smaller payments the sum of all such payments cannot exceed £250 in a working day. You can make up to five payments in the same period. The recipient will not appear in your saved payees.

Over any four working day period you can send a maximum of £1,000 or 20 payments. Once you reach these limits you will not be able to make any more payments for 24 hours.
