How balance transfer works.

You can transfer a balance(s) from

  • Store card
  • Hire purchase
  • Personal loan from another financial provider
  • Credit card from another financial provider.

How payments will be applied

We apply repayments on your credit card balance in a certain order:

  1. Charges and interest shown on your statement
  2. Cash advances then purchases as shown on your statement
  3. Balance transferred, the balance transfer with the highest rate will be paid off first
  4. Payments will then be applied to anything since your last statement in the same order.

This means that any balance transfer amount won’t start being paid off until these other types of charges or balances that appeared on your last statement have been paid in full. 

How interest will be applied 

  • Interest is calculated on a daily basis on all purchases, cash advances, balances transferred, fees and charges. Interest on cash advances and balance transfers is accumulated from the day the transactions are made.
  • Interest on purchases is accumulated daily, but only charged if the outstanding balance on your current statement, excluding the balance transfer amount, has not been repaid by the pay by date.
  • Your credit card statement will show you the total amount owing on your account, as well as the minimum payment due.
