Payment Help

Payments in general and new complexities!

From 14th September 2019, banks in the Republic of Ireland require a two-step authentication process.  This extra layer of complexity is beyond our control but is sadly needed to offset fraud. Most banks and cards will only require this extra step when the amount involved is above a preset limit.

After submitting a payment, especially if it is over the limit set by your bank, you may need to check your smart phone or email for a verification step. We recommend you have your smart phone open when making an online payment so that you will see any notifications associated with the payment. ( Remember that If you are using a family member’s credit card, you may need to check that person’s email or phone for verification.) It is very easy to miss this extra step required by the banks. The result can be that (1) your payment is not made as expected and (2) in some cases the bank may block your card until the extra step is completed.

If your payment goes through properly, you should receive an email receipt.
