Terms and conditions

There are a few conditions to using this facility and you should only use the "make a payment" link below if you accept these:

  • Your payment will take a minimum of 24 hours to reach your account. This includes time to verify your debit card details with your debit card issuer and for payment to be notified to us.
  • We cannot accept liability for a payment not reaching the intended account due to a customer quoting an incorrect reference number.
  • We cannot accept liability if payment is refused or declined by the debit card issuer.
  • If the debit card issuer declines payment, we are under no obligation to bring this to the customer's attention. Customers should check with their bank/debit card issuer to ensure that payment has been deducted from their relevant account.

When you have completed a successful transaction, you will be given a transaction reference number.
