No. We do not limit the amount which can be paid to us by debit or credit card, however the card issuer may have a limit on single or daily transactions.
How long does it take for funds to clear?
At present it is taking 4-5 working days for card payments to clear. We cannot use the funds until they have cleared. If funds are needed sooner you should consider using internet banking to transfer the money as this is faster.

Online Payments can be used for a variety of payments including:
- Paying our invoices

Does paying online attract any fees?
If money is paid using a GBP credit card, there will be a small fee (1-3% approx.). You will be notified of the fee BEFORE you submit your payment.
There is no fee for using a GBP debit card.
If you use a non GBP currency credit or debit card there will be an additional fee for currency exchange.
The facility for card payments is for your convenience and therefore all fees incurred will be payable by you and we will only credit your account with the net sum received by us after fees charged.
