Chip & Signature Cards
For customers who have difficulty using a PIN, we can offer a Chip and Signature personal Debit and/or Credit Card.
When you buy goods in a shop, you will not have to enter your PIN on the terminal. Instead, the assistant will print a receipt for you to sign and this signature will then be compared to the signature on the back of your Card. All other transactions, such as online and mail order, will be carried out in the same way as the personal Debit or Credit Card.
For more information or to ask for a Chip and Signature personal Debit or Credit Card, please contact our Additional Customer Support Helpline on 0345 646 0318 (Mon - Fri 9am - 5pm, excluding bank holidays).
