I telephoned Santander before going into town to open this account and I was told that the initial deposit could be made via Bank Transfer, I also confirmed this with the advisor at the Santander branch when I went down to open it.
How come others here are saying that the initial deposit can only be made via Cheque or Cash etc?

So i've set up my account, Im handing the standing order into my bank tomorrow for £300 a month. If say....I did not have £300 in a month and wanted to deposit £200 how would I go about doing this?
I only ask as the ladie who set up my account explained I would have to deposit the same ammount each month. From reading previous posts this does not seem to be the case. Maybe she was reffering to the standing order.
Thanks for any help given.

I went to my local Santander last week (Monday 18th) to open a first home saver account. Had to return the next day, as an appointment was needed. Anyway, the guy took all my details but couldn't open the account as he was having problems with the system. He assured me that the account would be opened by the end of the day and that he would phone me the details required to set up a standing order. After waiting for a couple of days, I phoned back to find out the account still wasn't open. Then yesterday (Monday 25th) I was told that the account had finally opened and I was given the details that I needed to set-up the standing order. As I have no current account with Santander, I was given a bank account and sort code where I would have to reference my first home saver account number when using a standing order. I was wondering if anyone else had to do the same thing. Surely you should be able to set up a standing order from an external (non-Santander) account into a Santander savings account directly?
