Your everyday just got a whole lot easier. Even better banking has arrived.

At the coffee shop, deciding if it’s a skinny soy latte or a cup of tea. In a taxi stuck in traffic, wondering how much you’ve saved for your trip to Machu Picchu. On a rollercoaster, planning the decorations for your dog’s third birthday party…

Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, our new and improved mobile app makes banking even simpler.

From checking your balances and viewing transactions to paying family and friends, mobile banking takes all the hassle out of everyday money stuff. You can now do more than ever from the comfort of your own phone - and if that’s not exciting enough, this is just the start of our mini digital revolution, with loads more improvements on the way.

So go on. Get yourself up to date.

Well done for innovating with fdPay keyboard

Well done first direct app development team for creating your new fdPay keyboard feature. It is very straight forward to use and hopefully it will encourage more people to use the brilliant Paym service.

Issue with the new Keyboard

If you are finding your words automatically converting to Emoji, this is due to the fd keyboard, it doesn’t look like you can switch it off so I’ve had to disable to keyboard.

Great app

Fab bank.
Great app. If I could improve it slightly it would be by being able to see past payments from over a month ago. Otherwise great
