How to set up a Direct Debit
You can set up a Direct Debit online or over the phone.
What is a Direct Debit?
A Direct Debit is an agreement you make with another person or organisation to take money out of your account with us. You give them your account number and sort code. They then set up a regular collection of money from your current account. The amount may vary.
Direct Debits can be used to pay your Nationwide credit card bill each month, or your TV licence on a yearly basis. It doesn’t have to be a fixed amount, but the company has to tell you in advance if the amount changes.
Direct Debits are covered by the Direct Debit guarantee (opens in a new window).

The company will need:

You can set up a standing order to pay a fixed amount of money regularly to another account.
