Introducing PayMe - ask for payment

What is PayMe?

PayMe is a new feature now available for NatWest Mobile Banking users with an eligible current account. It allows you to request a payment from anyone who uses online or mobile banking and has a UK Bank account. 

Send a payment request via link

Log into to the NatWest Banking app and select ‘Payments’, then ‘Request money’ to get paid using PayMe. Enter a payer name, add a quick reference, add the amount and then send a payment request link via your choice of social messaging channel. 

Collect money in person using a QR code

Using PayMe, you can also collect money via a QR code, which can be scanned by any device with a camera. There’s now no excuse for your friends that owe you for that brunch or big night out!
