Mobile App Features

Lock and unlock your credit card

We want to make managing your credit card simple and safe. If you have misplaced your credit card, you can lock and unlock it in the app. You can also use the app to request a PIN reminder or unblock your PIN. This feature applies to Mastercard credit cards only.

Get to know your spending habits

Setting a daily or monthly budget could help you keep an eye your credit card spending and manage your money. You can also use the app to lock and unlock certain transaction types. We’re all human, so if you accidentally go over budget, we’ll send you a notification as a wee reminder.

Manage your card whenever, wherever

Want to make a purchase on your card but you’re not sure you’ve got available credit? Not to worry, you can use the mobile app to check your balance in seconds. You can also review all your transactions, set up a direct debit, pay off your balance, manage your credit limit and much more.

Replace your credit card

Need a replacement card? No bother. If you have an iPhone, you can order a replacement for a lost or damaged credit card using the app. Select your credit card, tap ‘Manage my card’, then tap ‘Report lost, stolen or damaged’.

Let us know your travel plans

If you’re off globe-trotting, avoid those unexpected hitches by registering your travel plans through the app. This way, your card transactions are less likely to be flagged as suspicious or blocked while you’re abroad. You can create one travel plan at a time. Each travel plan can include up to seven countries and last for 90 days.

Choose paperless

Receiving your statements electronically not only means you’ll have less post cluttering your home, it means you’ll be helping reduce paper waste too. You can view up to 24 months of statements through the app and we’ll even send you an alert when they’re ready to view.
