Copy a direct debits template

Templates are a convenient way to help you create direct debits. Once you save a template you can select it to populate your payments without the need to add the details for each payment individually.

  • If you create a copy of an existing template you can edit it and save it as a new template.

When would I need to copy a template?

If you need to make payments, and have previously saved a template with some of the payments required, you can copy the template and use it as a starting point for your new template.

  • You can then enter a new name for the template and edit it as necessary.
How long does it take to add/copy/rename a template once saved?
