Paying in stores, apps and on the web has never been easier, safer, or more private. Your card information is secure because it isn’t stored on your device or shared when you pay.  Apple Pay doesn’t keep transaction information that can be tied back to you, ensuring all purchases are private.

Google Pay

With Google Pay™ you can use your phone to pay for anything from a coffee on the go to a new TV.  Google Pay doesn’t share your card number, so your information is safer and more secure.

Google Pay is a fast, simpler and more secure way to pay with your Visa debit card in stores, in apps and on sites. There is also no £30 price limit when you use it in stores (merchant limit may apply).  You can pay with Google Pay where ever you see the contactless logo.
