Important: If the organisation you are paying by Direct Debit needs to change the amount or collection date, they must notify you first.

How do I set up a Direct Debit?

You can complete a Direct Debit instruction, obtained from the organisation you wish to pay. With some organisations, you can set up Direct Debits over the telephone or via the internet. The organisation will then forward your instructions onto Vox Money and we will authorise them to allow payments to be collected from your account to them.

How can I delete a Direct Debit?

If you want to cancel a Direct Debit you should always contact the originator, i.e. the organisation or individual who you are paying by Direct Debit and tell them to cancel it for you.

Remember: Direct Debits are not usually collected on weekends or Bank Holidays

How many Direct Debits can I set up?

You can set up as many Direct Debits as you require from your card account and your Vox Money Wallets.

How do I change where I assign a Direct Debit to come from?

Remember: You can reassign a direct debit until 22.00hrs the day before it is due to go out.

Yes, when you login to your Vox Money account you will receive a notification to confirm when your Direct Debit has been successfully set up from your Vox Money account.

How do I change my Direct Debits to come from my Vox Money Account rather than my old bank account?

Vox Money can do this for you on receipt of a completed Vox Money Switch Agreement. To find out how to do this please see Switching from Your Existing Bank Account
Alternatively, if you would like to do this yourself then you need to contact the organisation or individual you would like to pay by Direct Debit and provide them with your new Account Number and Sort Code and they will do the rest. Once we have details of the Direct Debit you can then assign the Direct Debit to your card account or one of your Vox Money Wallets.

How will Vox Money know it is really me authorising a Direct Debit instruction?

Under the rules of the Direct Debit Scheme the organisation you are paying is responsible for checking all the information contained on your Direct Debit Instruction and confirming that they have sufficient identification. If we have any reason to doubt the authenticity, we may request a copy of the Direct Debit Instruction from the organisation you are paying.

Is my money protected by the FSCS?

Your e-money is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) instead the method of protecting your money is called “safeguarding”. We keep your money separate from our own money and place it in a safeguarding account with a bank.

How is money in my Vox Money account protected?

Vox Money is an e-money account, we are not a bank and therefore:

  • we do not take your money as a deposit to use for our own purposes or lend to other customers; and
  • your e-money is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

We keep your money separate from our own money and place it in a safeguarding account with a bank. In addition to our daily checks, to ensure your funds are held correctly, we independently check that we are meeting our obligations every year.

These safeguarding rules are designed to ensure that if an e-money institution fails, your funds are protected. The protection means that if an e-money institution fails, there are sufficient funds to pay customers the money held in their e-money accounts. The only costs which can be paid out of the safeguarded account is the costs deducted by the insolvency practitioner for distributing the money to customers.

For more information about safeguarding we have included the below links which you will find useful:

  • The FCA have provided details on their website about the differences between a bank account and an e-money account, and the protection provided in each case.
  • The FCA have also written a letter to all e-money institutions.
  • Section 24 of the Vox Money Terms and Conditions also provides information about how we safeguard your funds.
