If your contact details (including your mobile phone number or email address) change, you must tell us as soon as you can.
You’re responsible for all instructions given through Mobile Banking, by you or anyone acting with your authority.
8.1 Your Account Terms explain how payments into and out of your account work. The section below contains information on Pay Your Contacts, which is a payment service that is specific to Mobile Banking and therefore isn’t included in your Account Terms.
8.2 When you make a payment through Mobile Banking we'll make the payment using the Faster Payments Service if possible. If we can't use the Faster Payments Service we'll advise you of alternative ways to make the payment.
Pay Your Contacts
8.3 Pay Your Contacts allows you to send money to a third party by using the payee’s mobile phone number rather than their account number and sort code.
8.4 You can use this service to make payments to:
- anyone who has registered to use the NatWest, RBS, Ulster Bank Northern Ireland, NatWest Offshore or Isle of Man Bank Mobile Banking Apps (the Group Apps); and
- anyone who has registered for Paym (which is a service offered by a number of banks and building societies to allow you to send and receive payments in this way).
8.5 To make a payment in this way, you need to give us:
- the mobile phone number of the payee. (This is the information that we use to identify the payee); and
- the amount of the payment in pounds sterling.
You’re responsible for ensuring that these details are correct.
8.6 When you confirm the payee's mobile phone number and the amount of the payment this will be your payment instruction to us and the payment will be processed immediately.
8.7 If the payee is registered to use one of the Group Apps and Paym, we’ll send the payment to one of the accounts linked to their Group App.
8.8 If the payee isn’t registered to use one of the Group Apps but is registered for Paym, we’ll send the payment to the account they’ve registered for Paym.
8.9 Once you’ve asked us to make a payment you won’t be able to cancel it. If you realise that you’ve given us an incorrect mobile phone number or payment amount, you must inform us as soon as possible by calling 0345 366 7001 (or +44 2381 244179 from outside the UK). Where possible we’ll try to recover the payment, but might not be able to do so. We won’t be liable to you if we’re unable to recover a payment in these circumstances.
8.10 We’ll notify you within the App if we’re unable to make a payment.
8.11 There’s a daily limit and an individual transaction limit on payments sent using Pay Your Contacts. Details of these limits can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions section of the App.
We don’t currently charge you for Mobile Banking. However, your mobile phone network operator may charge you when using Mobile Banking and these charges may vary if you use your mobile phone to access Mobile Banking when outside the UK.
10. OUR LIABILITY
We won’t be liable to refund you for any losses caused by circumstances beyond our control (i.e. the situation was abnormal or unforeseeable), for example, due to extreme weather, terrorist activity or industrial action.
11.1 You’re free to cancel Mobile Banking at any time. If you’d like to do this, please call us on 0345 366 7001 (or +44 2381 244179 from outside the UK) or text STOP to 87898. (standard Network charges may apply)

- we reasonably believe that your security details haven’t been kept secret;
- we reasonably suspect that your security details have been used fraudulently or without your permission;
- as a result of a change in the way you operate your account(s) or in your financial circumstances, we reasonably believe that you may have difficulty in meeting your commitments;
- we believe it’s appropriate in order to protect your account(s);
- you’ve broken any of the Licence Terms set out below.
We’ll tell you before we take any of these steps and we’ll explain why we’ve done so, unless we’re unable to contact you or there’s a legal reason or other circumstance beyond our control that stops us from doing so. If we can’t get hold of you beforehand, we’ll (where possible) tell you and explain our reasons afterwards.
11.4 We can also end your use of Mobile Banking or remove the App by giving you at least 60 days’ notice.
11.5 If we have a valid reason for doing so, we may change these Terms (which may include introducing charges for Mobile Banking) by giving you at least 60 days’ notice before the change takes effect. We’ll tell you about any changes by:
- notifying you within the App;
- sending a text message (to the mobile phone number you gave us);
- sending an email (to the email address you gave us);
- delivering a secure message to online banking; or
- sending you notice by post.
We’ll assume that you’ve accepted the changes unless you uninstall the App or tell us that you’d like to cancel Mobile Banking before the change takes effect.
