Contactless payments.

In a rush or just have no change? Paying for everyday things couldn’t be easier with contactless payments.

All eligible current accounts come with contactless as standard and for existing customers, you’ll get a contactless debit card on your next renewal. If you don’t want to wait, give us a call on 0345 720 3040 or visit a Halifax branch and we’ll arrange for one to be sent out.

Most contactless payments will appear in the main section of your online statement within a few days. However, some transactions may show first in the ‘View pending transactions’ section.

Please note: Not all Contactless Card transactions appear immediately on your Online & Mobile Banking statements. If you can’t see a transaction please wait a few days for it to be added to your statement.
