  • Why won’t my debit card process?

    Your address on UBL UK NetRemit must match exactly with the address on your debit card and that is on file with your issuing bank. Our system will verify this address to protect you from card fraud – if the address does not match exactly, your order will not be processed. When you process a transaction, your card issuer may place a shield on the funds. If your transaction is declined, your card issuer may take time to release the funds from the shield and you should contact your card issuer if there are delays.

     

    You may also contact to your bank if your details are correct but payment has not been authorised by your bank.

  • What are verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure Code?

    As a Visa or MasterCard card holder, you have an option to sign up with Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code, programs established by those companies to minimize and eliminate the risk of fraudulent use of card online. This offers card holders an extra layer of fraud protection by having you enter an additional password before an online transaction can be completed. By requiring this extra layer of security, UBL UK can better ensure that we do not process a transaction not initiated by you.

  • Can I use my credit card as a means of payment?

    Yes, you can use your UK credit card as a means of payment.

  • Is my debit card information safe?

    Yes. Your debit card information is secure. The on-line payment service we use is Sage Pay. Sage Pay is audited by an independent auditor on a regular basis to ensure that it complies with the latest security standards set out by Visa and MasterCard. Sage Pay asks your card issuer to authorise your transaction at the time you make payment. This is a completely secure process and they ensure that your details cannot be accessed by a third party. An acknowledgment is displayed when your payment is processed. If your card issuer does not authorise payment a message tells you authorisation has been denied. If you cannot correct any error you will need to arrange payment by an alternative method. Card issuers check for fraudulent payments. Therefore if you try to make a payment that does not correspond to your usual pattern of card use, your payment may be declined. If this happens you need to contact your card issuer for an explanation. We will not hold any of your card details on our system.

  • What happens if I forget my login details?

    you forget your login details, you can select the ‘forgot password’ option from the internet or mobile banking login screens to reset your information.

     

    By selecting the appropriate option you will be given instructions to retrieve or reset your details.

In compliance with UK regulations, we are required to gather additional information in certain transactions that meet the criteria of corresponding regulations. If you are contacted in order to gather additional information, your transaction may be delayed until all criteria have been satisfied.

  • How do I change my remittance once the transaction has been submitted?

    If you realise that you have provided incorrect information with regards to your beneficiary details, or you wish to cancel the transaction, please contact UBL UK NetRemit support team as soon as possible via secure message or on 0121 753 6000. Any amendments to the original beneficiary details provided by you will incur a £10 charge, as will any cancellation of a transaction – whether or not the change or cancellation is successful. Please note that if the transaction has already been processed and sent to the beneficiary’s bank, we cannot guarantee the retrieval of funds or changes to the beneficiary details.

  • What is a One Time Passcode (OTP)?

    A One Time Passcode (OTP) is a security measure providing you with enhanced protection when accessing your UBL UK NetRemit account from internet banking. The OTP is a 6 digit number sent to you via SMS message to the mobile number that you provided at registration.

     

    You will need to have a registered mobile number capable of receiving SMS messages in order to register for the UBL UK NetRemit service, your registered mobile number will also be required when making certain transactions or when adding new recipients to your UBL UK NetRemit Account when using internet banking.

  • How does the OTP process work?

    For certain types of transactions through internet banking, such as making a payment to a new recipient, when you reach the 'Confirm Details' stage of the transaction, we will send you a SMS message to your registered mobile number containing a ‘One Time Passcode’. Simply enter the 6 digit OTP in the designated on-screen box provided to validate and complete the transaction. The OTP process is designed to provide additional protection to registered UBL UK NetRemit customers as it enforces additional verification when completing certain processes on the system; this is essentially a mechanism to safe guard against fraud. Further information of the specific instances for which an OTP is required are listed in the “When will I be required to enter an OTP” section below.

  • When will I be required to enter an OTP?

    For the majority of transactions on internet banking you will NOT need to enter an OTP..

     

    However, you will need to use an OTP in the following instances:

     

    When you initially register to use any UBL UK NetRemit service on mobile or internet banking

    When you login to internet banking if you do not have the mobile app

    When you update / amend certain aspects of your details on internet banking such as:

    • When you add a beneficiary
    • When a transaction is initiated with a newly added beneficiary
    • When you update an existing beneficiaries details
    • When a transaction is initiated after your profile has been updated
    • When a transaction is initiated with a newly added payment card

    When you use the Mobile App on a new device

  • How long does it take to receive an OTP Passcode via SMS message?

    If you perform a process / transaction on the digital banking platform that requires an OTP, when you reach the 'Confirm Details' screen, you will immediately be sent an OTP to your registered mobile number which you should receive promptly (this should usually be received within seconds). In exceptional circumstances it could take slightly longer (a couple of minutes) depending on your network coverage. The OTP 6 digit code is only valid for 15 minutes.

  • What happens if I change my mobile number?

    If your mobile number changes from the one that you have registered on the digital banking platform, you should contact UBL UK’s Customer Service Department on 0121 753 6000 to advise that your mobile number has changed. They will in turn update your mobile number details on the NetRemit system. As a security precaution, you will be sent an OTP to your new mobile number to authorise the change.

  • How do I use an OTP if I do not have mobile phone network coverage?

    Unfortunately, you will be unable to receive an OTP code if you do not have sufficient mobile phone network coverage. An OTP can only be sent to a mobile phone with network coverage to enable the SMS with the OTP to sufficiently reach the mobile phone. However, as advised in “When will I be required to enter an OTP” section, the majority of the standard UBL UKNetRemit transactions do not require OTP verification. If you do not have mobile phone network coverage, you will need to wait until you are able to receive an SMS message to verify your transaction. If you do not receive the SMS message within 5 minutes due to insufficient mobile network coverage, the OTP will expire and you will need to restart the process, see “Is there a time limit to use an OTP?” section below.

  • Will I be charged to receive an OTP via SMS message?

    UBL UK will not charge for sending you an OTP message via SMS. However, receipt of an SMS message may be chargeable by your mobile network service provider. It should be noted that most UK mobile phone providers do not charge you to receive SMS messages, even when abroad, however, you should check with your mobile network service provider to confirm whether you will be charged for receiving SMS messages.

  • What happens if I am overseas?

    If you are mobile app user, you should be able to access mobile banking if you have sufficient data availability.

     

    You can receive an OTP code via SMS message overseas if your handset and SIM card allow global roaming and the country you are in operates a compatible network. You will require sufficient network coverage to receive the OTP SMS message as outlined earlier in this document. Please check with your mobile network service provider for further information about global roaming.

  • What will happen if I input the OTP code incorrectly?

    You have 5 attempts to enter your OTP code correctly. If you enter the OTP code incorrectly 5 times, your NetRemit account will be blocked for security reasons. In this scenario please contact UBL UK’s Customer Service Department on 0121 753 6000 who will provide further assistance.

  • Is there a time limit to use an OTP?

    You are required to input an OTP within fifteen minutes of receipt, If you are unable to input the OTP within this timeframe the OTP will expire, and you will need to restart the process. A new OTP will in turn be generated and sent to your registered mobile phone number.
