Online Payment Control

An efficient way to control payments online

Online Payment Control allows you to choose two or three of your registered Internet Banking users to authorise some or all of your online payments. They can set up, make and authorise payments securely from anywhere in the world, as long as they have internet access.

Benefits of Online Payment Control:

  • Available 24 hours a day
  • Quick and easy to use – for both UK and International Payments
  • Very secure – uses the latest protection
  • Allows you to download statements
  • Saves time and money – you can make all your payments online, with no need to send cheques.

Choose from two types of payment control

If you are the full access account signatory you can choose between:

  • Authorising payments through authentication by two or three members of your business who are registered Internet Banking users
  • Setting individual payment limits for each of your authorised Internet Banking users
