    Any way to pay someone without using your bank? 12th Sep 17 at 11:19 AM
    Hi guys!

    I just like to know/ask if there is a way to put money into someones account with a 3rd party, basically without going online to your own bank account or going into your own branch... If for example I cannot do online banking and cannot go into my own bank to pay someone then is there another way? such as using other 3rd part online sites? bit like moneygram but I want to pay someone in the UK as am from UK too, but like I said if you cannot do online banking nor going into your own bank account then is there another way or any websites? I have my bank card but I just cannot go online to my account nor can I go into the branch, so how can I put money into their bank account?

    Am sure I heard there are websites that let you do that providing they take a fee, if so which sites are these?

    thanks guys.

    I've used Azimo quite a few times for overseas payment. It looks like I can make a payment to a UK recipient, but I haven't gone through the full payment process.

    And you're Peter Duncan; I gave you fair warning

    Paypal, although the money will have to come from somewhere (i.e. your bank) and for any more than trivial sums you or the recipient will probably run into fraud checks pretty quickly.

    Why can't you go online to your own account?

    Doesn't paypal take 2-4 days to clear funds? what if the reciepement needs the money the same day?

    reason why I cannot go into the branch is because am on crutches and don't have transport, I recently broke my leg. I cant do online banking as I have not recieved my online bank account information yet nor a card reader, so am wondering if there is any way other that I can pay some money into someones account today.

    Thanks!

    Can you use phone banking with your existing bank or would that involve a lead time while stuff is sent out as well?

    Do you have their Sort Code and Account No?

    A cheque payable to them and ask a neighbour to pay in using a blank bank paying in slip.

    Or a 1st Class stamp and post today.
    Never pay on an estimated bill

    Moneygram at Tesco branches almost instant.

    Neteller card funded with Paysafecard available over the counter at supporting retailers. Then use the Neteller card to transfer money into the bank account. Getting the virtual Neteller card should be instant. Apply for Neteller online.

    Western Union available over the counter at supporting retailers. Provide ID including photo ID.

    There may be others. I've recommended those which I have personally found useful.

    Some banks have a system to pay using your mobile.
    Similar to Apple pay in a way with similar limits.

    If you and the person you want to pay both open a Revolut account with the smartphone app, you can load yours by debit card and send it to theirs instantly. They can then send it to their bank account. No fees. If the other party cannot or don't want to open a Revolut account, you can send the amount from yours to their bank account, still no fees but not instant.

    Phone banking till you get online, as long as you pass the security questions, also I understand you can't go into your bank but do you have someone to go into their bank and pay money in?

    As others have suggested PayPal, via your bank, money is sent straight to the recipient, but takes a few days to be debited from your account.
