Historic mobile banking terms

Updates to our mobile banking terms

We’re making the following change to our Mobile Banking Terms:

As the Paym service will no longer be available in the App from 4th February 2023, we’ve removed reference to this service from our Mobile Banking Terms. You can still use Pay Your Contacts to make payments using a mobile number when the payee holds an account with us and is registered for Pay Your Contacts. If you no longer want to be registered, you can cancel registration at any time.

For payees who don’t hold an account with us or aren’t registered for Pay Your Contacts, you can make mobile payments using their account number and sort code. 

Your updated Mobile Banking Terms

Please read the updated Mobile Banking Terms carefully. They’ll take effect on 4th February 2023 and will stay in the `Help` section of the App for future reference.

7. 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 from your personal account 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 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 for Paym, we'll send the payment to the account they've registered for Paym.

8.8 Once you've asked us to make a payment you won't be able to cancel it. If you realise you've given us an incorrect mobile phone number or payment amount, you must inform us as soon as possible by contacting us on 0345 366 7003 or +44 2381 244181 from outside the UK. Where possible we'll try to recover the payment, but might not be able to do so. We'll not be liable to you if we're unable to stop a payment in these circumstances.

8.9 We'll notify you within the App if we're unable to make a payment.

8.10 There's a daily limit and an individual transaction limit on payments sent using Pay Your Contacts. Details of these limits can be found on our website at iombank.com/supportcentre in the 'Search our FAQs' section.

Our liability

12.3 We may suspend, restrict or end your use of Mobile banking or any part of it where:

  • we reasonably believe that your security details haven't been kept safe;
  • 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 use 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 taking 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.

12.4 We can also end your use of Mobile banking or remove the App by giving you at least 60 days' notice.

12.5 If we have a valid reason for doing so, we may change the terms of our agreement with you (which may include introducing charges for Mobile Banking). If we need to update the Terms to introduce a new feature into the App, which does not change the Terms relating to any existing features, we may do so immediately and will tell you as soon as we can afterwards. If we make any other change to the Terms, we’ll give you at least 60 days’ notice before it 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
