Question

unable to validate bank account


I am trying to set up direct debit on my account  but every time I try it says unable to validate bank details that were entered I have checked them a ridiculous amount of times and are definitely correct but still just says invalid bank account! This is ridiculous as I can’t upgrade my phone (which I need to ASAP) unless I set up a direct debit yet when I try it won’t let me?!! Help!

Hi @Smithnat2 

Are you trying to re-instate the original direct debit details that you had originally set up when purchasing the contract?

Hi @Mohsin no have had a new bank account since then and don’t use the old one so am trying to set up direct debit with new card as is the only one I use now but it seems to be impossible :(

HI @Smithnat2 

Have you tried signing out of the iD app, signing back in, and then tried to set up your direct debit again? Also, is your new bank account working with other direct debits set up?

-Mohsin

 

@Mohsin I just tried logging out and back in and setting up again and is the same problem  and I don’t have any direct debits with my bank account this is the only one I’m trying to set up, thanks

Hi @Smithnat2 

And just to confirm, you are using a Visa Debit account to set the direct debit account up on the iD Mobile app?

-Mohsin

Hi @Mohsin yes that’s correct visa debit. I don’t know what to do have tried everything :(

Hi @Smithnat2,

Something must be tripping the validation. Is the address that we hold for you the same one that the bank holds for you too? Also, have you tried setting up your direct debit using both our app and our website? Here is the link to our website log-in if not: https://my.idmobile.co.uk/.

Hi @Ryan yes the address is the same and yes have tried it on website and on app and just again tried through the link you sent and still saying the same thing :(

Hi @Smithnat2,

Thanks for trying those. I would recommend asking your bank for any advice, just in case the block could be on their side. Please let us know how that goes.

Hi @Ryan  I went to my bank today and they said there’s no problems at all there end they wouldn’t stop me getting a direct debit and there is nothing wrong at all so is obviously IDmobile something there end just really fustrating now doesn’t seem like anything else can try and desperately need to upgrade my phone soon but obviously can’t until I set up a direct debit which they won’t allow me to do for unknown reasons, thanks
