Contactless payments can be made at retailers who accept these types of payments you ll normally see the above symbol on their payment terminal. 22

24 You can authorise a card payment in the following ways: You must also produce evidence of your identity if asked. If you want to make a contactless payment you must remove your card from your purse or wallet to make sure the right card is used and then tap it on the retailer s card terminal. In some cases you ll also be asked to enter your PIN or provide a signature for a contactless payment; or your personal and card details and the 3-digit security number on the back of the card. If you re making a payment over the internet you may have to register for Verified by Visa. If you don t we may not authorise your payment. Once registered, you may be required to enter certain characters from your Verified by Visa password when you make a card payment online. We won t be responsible if a retailer refuses to accept your card. Foreign currency debit card payments You can use your card to make payments or cash withdrawals in a foreign currency. If you want us to convert the payment/cash withdrawal to sterling you must select to pay in the foreign currency. Visa will carry out the conversion and we ll deduct the sterling amount from your account. If you select to pay in sterling, the conversion will be done by the retailer or self-service machine owner. For more details about the exchange rate that will apply and our fees see the Payments out of your account section at the beginning of these Terms. Cancelling a debit card payment or withdrawal You cannot cancel a cash withdrawal after you have pressed the button on the keypad agreeing to it. You can tell us you want to cancel a recurring debit card payment (also known as a continuous payment authority ) up to the end of the Working Day before the next payment date. Alternatively, you can cancel the recurring payment directly with the retailer who asks us for the payment. 23

See the Account Features in the individual product summaries above to check which of these payments you can make from your account (if you can make any). Payment details You must provide us with the following information for us to be able to make a foreign currency or international payment from your account: or national bank code; SEPA payment or paying to a bank in the EEA; 24

26 You must ensure that this information is correct. If the BIC and/or IBAN (or national bank code and/ or national account number if applicable), are not correct, it is unlikely your payment will reach the Recipient s account.

If we receive your payment instructions after the earliest of the two cut-off times, we ll start making the payment on the next Working Day. 25

27 Exchange rates for international payments You can ask us to convert a payment into a different currency before we send it. The first direct Exchange Rate applies to all conversions. These are variable rates that change frequently. If you ask us to make a payment immediately, we ll provide details of the first direct Exchange Rate and you ll have the opportunity to accept or reject it before confirming you want us to send your payment. If you have asked us to make a future-dated or recurring international payment, we will apply the first direct Exchange Rate at the time we make the payment. If: set out in the When we won t make payments section above we will convert that payment back into sterling using the first direct Exchange Rate that applies at that time. The amount added back to your account could be less than the original amount of the payment depending on the first direct Exchange Rate that applies at that time. We are not responsible for this. You can get details of the first direct Exchange Rate by calling us. If you ve asked us to make a payment on a date in the future, you can check the first direct Exchange Rate by calling us before midnight the day before we make the payment. Cancelling a payment If you ve asked us to make a payment immediately you cannot cancel it. The only exceptions to this are if you ve made two identical SEPA payments in error, or someone else has fraudulently made a SEPA payment from your account. In that case you can cancel the payment within 10 Working Days. 6.

We won t be able to stop a cheque after 1.30pm on the day we receive it for payment. If one of your cheques is lost or stolen, or you think someone has signed one of your cheques without your permission you must call us immediately. We can refuse to pay a cheque you ve written if the date on it is more than six months old; however, we can still make the payment. If you re asked to write a replacement for a lost cheque, it s your responsibility to cancel the original cheque first. Banking of cheques for payment will be subject to the rules and clearing processes of any cheque clearing system(s) used. 7.

Cheques you receive How long it takes for a cheque to show in your account For sterling or euro cheques issued in the UK and paid into HSBC branches in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man: The day the amount of the cheque shows in your account balance Day 0 The day we take the amount of the cheque into account when we calculate any Overdraft Interest Two Working Days later (Day 2) The day the amount of the cheque is available to withdraw Three Working Days later (Day 3) The last day a cheque can be returned unpaid For sterling cheques drawn on and paid in at a UK bank, usually 6 Working Days after the cheque was received by us* Other cheques no time limit For example, if a UK sterling cheque is paid into a UK bank on a Monday: Monday Wednesday Thursday Tuesday the following week. The cheque amount will be deducted from your account by 9.00am Wednesday 28

30 Day 0 means the day we receive the cheque. If you pay in a cheque after 3.30pm then this means we will receive the cheque the next Working Day. Details of our cheque cut-off times are in the Give me the facts brochure. Because we process overnight, the deduction of an unpaid cheque from your account can happen up to 9.00am 7 Working Days after the cheque has been received by us. * A cheque may be returned unpaid more than 6 Working Days after we received it if: cheque; or If you pay in a cheque at a Post Office branch before that Post Office branch cut-off time, we will receive your cheque on the next Working Day. The above timescales will start on the day we receive your cheque from the Post Office.

Please note that for cheques paid into HSBC branches in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man the timescales above will start to apply once we receive the cheques in the UK. Unpaid cheques If a cheque is returned unpaid ( bounces ), we ll deduct the amount of the cheque from your account. If this leads to your account either: we ll treat this as an informal overdraft request from you. Cheques made payable to someone else You can pay a cheque made payable to someone else into your account if the person it s payable to has signed the back. We can also ask for other details before we accept it. However, this doesn t apply to a cheque marked account payee only or not transferrable, which can only be paid into the account of the person it s made payable to. Foreign Cheques We ll agree to either negotiate a Foreign Cheque or send it for collection. We charge in both instances, and you may also have to pay foreign agents charges and charges imposed by the bank on which the Foreign Cheque is drawn. 29

31 Negotiation of a Foreign Cheque We ll immediately add the Foreign Cheque amount to your account. We will convert the amount at the first direct Exchange Rate applicable on the date we pay it in. We will tell you the applicable exchange rate and fees we will charge in writing. For more information about fees see page 3. If the Foreign Cheque is returned unpaid we ll deduct the amount of the Foreign Cheque from your account. If the Foreign Cheque was converted into another currency then we ll reconvert it back to the currency of the Foreign Cheque using the first direct Exchange Rate before we make the deduction. Collection of a Foreign Cheque We ll collect the amount of the Foreign Cheque first and then pay that money into your account. We may wait for a short time before paying the money into your account to make sure that the Foreign Cheque is not going to be returned unpaid. We ll convert the amount we receive into sterling using the first direct Exchange Rate before we pay it into your account. We re not responsible for any losses that result from changes to the first direct Exchange Rate. You must sign on the back of a Foreign Cheque you want to pay into your account using the exact same name given on the front of the Foreign Cheque. 9. What happens if things go wrong? If you don t recognise a payment from your account You must check your statements regularly and carefully and call us immediately if you don t recognise a transaction or think we ve made a payment incorrectly. If you tell us that you didn t authorise a payment, we ll immediately refund your account with the payment amount and any interest or charges you ve paid as a result of that payment. We ll have no further responsibility to you. If we later become aware that we re not responsible for the unauthorised transaction, we ll deduct the amount of the refund from your account. We won t make an immediate refund if we reasonably suspect fraud or that you intentionally or with gross negligence failed to keep your card, Security Device or your Security Details (including PINs and passwords) safe. However, we ll investigate the transaction as quickly as possible. If you have, with gross negligence, or intentionally, failed to take any of the steps listed in the Protecting your account section above that relate to the security of your card and/or PIN, your maximum liability for unauthorised transactions that occur before you report the items lost or stolen is 50. You must tell us about any unauthorised payments within 13 months of the date of the payment; otherwise you may not be entitled to have any errors corrected. 30
