Confirmation of Payee

Confirmation of Payee (CoP) is a new way of giving customers (both personal and business) greater assurance that they are sending payments to the intended recipient, helping them to avoid making accidental, misdirected payments to the wrong account holder, as well as providing another layer of protection in the fight against fraud and scams particularly Authorised Push Payment (APP) scams.

Typically, when a customer or business sets up a new payee or amends an existing payee’s details, Confirmation of Payee will enable them to confirm whether the details they have entered match the account of the person or organisation they are paying.
