    Can I pay online into a different credit card account ? 3rd Oct 17 at 4:00 PM
    Hi
    I regularly pay my credit card bill online - the bank issued the card so no problem.
    But now I want to be able to pay a bill for a different credit card which is issued by a different bank.
    Has anyone got experience of this ? Transfers need sort code and account number but do credit card accounts have account numbers ? Do I need to submit the card number as well ?

    Yes, you need to put the card number - the long 16 digit one - as the reference.

    How else would the card company know which account to credit the payment to?

    As per the above, you usually put the card number as the reference.


    But check on the card statement - at the bottom, or often on the back, there will be a section called "ways to pay" or similar. That will tell you exactly what information to put on the online payment screen.
    I may not know much about art, but I know what I like.

    I used to pay my Bank of Scotland credit card from my First Direct account. As the others have said, the statement will confirm the Sort Code, Account Number and to use the card number as Reference.
