How do I add a new Anytime Internet Banking payee?

Before you can make a payment you need to set up a payee - the person or company the money will be paid to. You will require a card-reader and a card you can use with that reader to complete this process.

To add a payee

Debit Card

  1. Log in to your Anytime Internet Banking service at www.ulsterbankanytimebanking.co.uk (opens in a new window).
  2. Select 'Payments and transfers' from the left hand menu.
  3. Under the 'Make a payment or transfer' heading select 'Manage payees'.
  4. Click on the 'Add Payee' button.
  5. Type in the first name and last name of the person or full company trading name (up to 140 characters. Acceptable special characters are '/', '&' and '-'.)
  6. Type in their sort code.
  7. Type in their bank account number.
  8. Select the account type 'Personal' or 'Business'.
  9. Click 'next'.
  10. Where a Confirmation of Payee (CoP) check is performed you'll receive a response to let you know if the name you have entered matches the details for the account. If the response from the payee’s bank is 'close match, no match or unable/unavailable', we will give you advice on what to do next.
  11. Click 'next'.
  12. Type in the payee name – the payee name is prepopulated from the full name so you don’t need to enter it again but you can edit it. This will be the name which will appear on your statement and the payee list (up to 18 characters. Acceptable special characters are '/', '&' and '-'.)
  13. Type in a reference - this should be something to help identify you to the payee (up to 18 characters. Acceptable special characters are '/', '&' and '-'.)
  14. Click 'next'.
  15. Once you have checked the details, confirmed and authorised, your new payee is added.

Please note: If you set the payee up through telephone banking you will be asked to confirm the payee details with your card-reader before you can make payments to that payee online.

Credit Card

  7. The account number and sort code will automatically be selected.
  8. In the reference number box, add your 16 digit credit card number and click 'Next'.
