Pay your credit card from another bank

You can do this online

  • Transfer money at any time from your bank or building society account.
  • The payment should reach your credit card within 2 hours.
  • You can make extra payments even if you have a Direct Debit set up.

Keep in mind

If you make an extra payment, we may still collect your Direct Debit in full.

How to do it

Let us show you step by step.

  • You can also make a one-off payment from your current account in the same way you pay a bill or person. You can also set up a standing order, which is a recurring payment. Using your chosen bank's app or online service, you’ll need these details to set up a new payee and complete a payment:

    Account number: 0000 0000 

    Sort code: 77-29-00 

    Remember to include your most recent 16-digit credit card number as the payment reference. This is so we know which account to apply your payment to. You’ll find this on your credit card itself, or on your most recent credit card statement.

  • If you have a UK debit card, you'll be able to pay your credit card using our app or Online Banking service.

Let’s take a closer look

    • You can make payments to your credit card account at any time. You do need to pay at least the minimum amount shown on your statement each month. 
    • If you can't pay the whole statement balance, it's a good idea to pay as much as you can. It may help to keep any interest costs down.
    • If you only make the minimum payment each month, it will take longer and cost you more to pay off your balance.
    • If you miss a payment, you are likely to be charged a late fee and damage your credit rating. You could also lose any promotional rates on your credit card and have to pay the standard interest rate instead.
    • Set up a regular Direct Debit payment and we’ll automatically claim your selected payment amount when it’s due. 
    • If a Direct Debit isn’t taken for 37 months, it will become inactive, and your bank or building society will remove the details from their systems. If this happens, you’ll need to set up a new one.
    • You can also make payments in other ways. For example, from a bank account, with a debit card, by cheque or with cash at a branch. You can do this even if you have a Direct Debit set up.
    • If you choose to make one-off payments, make sure the method you use will get your payment to us on time. 
    • Payments should reach your Halifax credit card account within 2 hours. This will then update your available credit. 
    • Please allow at least 1 working day for your list of recent transactions to update.
    • You can change your payment due date to better suit your needs. For example, if you usually receive your salary later than your due date falls.
    • The fastest way to do this is through Online Banking on a desktop or laptop computer. 
    • To use Online Banking, sign in or register to get started. From your credit card account summary, select ‘More actions’, then ‘Paying your credit card’. Here, select ‘Request payment due date change’.
    • Just be aware, your change may apply to a future payment, rather than the next one, depending on when you make your request.
