How to pay in a cheque

Mobile app

You can pay in up to £1500 in total each day using the mobile app. We've put together a step by step guide to help you.


You can't pay in a cheque with Digital Banking, however, we do have many alternative ways to send and receive money online. Find out how you can make a payment and pay someone new digitally too. Limits/Criteria apply.


It's quicker and simpler to use our app but you still can pay in your cheques at a branch or Post office; or if you need to pay in more than £1500 in a day.
