Manage your Swift card

The best way to manage your Swift card is to register it online. This also helps you protect the money on your card.

When you’ve registered your Swift card, you’ll be able to:

Register your Swift card

If you bought your Swift card online, you’ll already have registered your card. Log in to your account if you want to make any changes.

If you bought your Swift card from a Payzone store or a travel centre, you’ll need to create an online account.

Register your Swift card on the registration page. You’ll need your Swift card number and postcode to do this.

You can also register more than one card on your account. To add another card, log in to your account and click ‘add a new card’ to your existing account.

Cancel or pause your Direct Debit payments

You can cancel your Direct Debit payments online. You need to do this at least 14 days before your next payment is due.

You can also pause payments if you’re not using your Swift card for a while. You can only pause payments for one month or more. The longest time you can pause payments for is 6 months. After that, your account will be cancelled and you’ll have to get a new card.

Contact Customer Services if you need to pause your Direct Debit. You need to do this at least 14 days before your next payment is due.
