You can request to opt out of CoP. This will mean that when a person or business tries to pay you, and they attempt to check your account details in advance, they’ll get a message that these details can’t be checked.
Although the payment will still go through, we’d recommend staying opted in as CoP aims to make sure payments are going to the right account and reduce instances of fraud.
If you still want to opt out of CoP, please visit our contact us page to reach out to our team.
We’ll assess any request to opt out of CoP and get back to you within 14 working days. If your request to opt out is successful, we’ll mark all your accounts, including any joint accounts (but not any accounts held by joint parties in their sole name), as opted out of CoP.
