Just tried to pay an installment on my MBNA account online and couldn't.
When I rang Carrick On Suir, I eventually got to speak to someone after half an hour holding on.
I was informed that the online service can only accept laser cards and cannot accept visa debit cards as yet.
Just wondering whether the consumer will still have to pay interest rates even though they cannot be facilitated online, and to wait half an hour to pay by phone is unacceptable. Not good enough MBNA. I am going back to my BOI Credit Card.

They never did accept visa debit. You could do an online transfer from your bank account to there account number:

A/C: 90001059
Sort code: 93-20-86

They can take visa debit payments, just they choose not too, as they will take them in late situations if you get to talk to the right person.

Apparently the new website will take debit card payments when launched so sit tight for another 2 weeks

Davy,

Thanks for that. Never thought of an online transfer.

Looks like I won't need to use it, though.

Now that doesn't inspire confidence. I saw it last night but the 'Register' button wasn't working, thought it would be up and running today but it just bounces to MBNA.

Any hearsay on when this will be back up and running?
