How much do I need to pay?

You need to pay at least the minimum payment shown on your monthly statement.

If you only pay the minimum, it’ll take you longer and cost you more to clear your balance.

  • Questions about your purchase

    For questions about a particular product, delivery or returns, contact the company you bought your item from first.

    Otherwise please get in touch with us.

  • Fees and charges

    We charge a £12 fee if:

    - you don’t pay the minimum payment by the due date
    - you spend over your credit limit
    - your cheque bounces
    - your Direct Debit is unpaid

  • If your application has been declined

    You can ask us to review the decision by writing to Ikano Bank, PO Box 7221, Willenhall WV1 9DR.

    Please include a recent copy of your credit report and any other financial information you think we should know about.

    We’ll respond within 14 days - we may need to ask you for more information.

Payments

  • How are payments allocated if I don’t pay the full balance?

    The amount you pay will cover any insurance premiums first.

    It starts with higher interest rate balances, covering default fees and charges, then interest, then the cost of your purchases.

  • My payment isn't showing on my account, what should I do?

    If you paid more than 5 working days ago, check with your bank to see if the payment was processed.

    If your payment has been returned, it's because you've used the wrong reference or not added one. It must be your store card account number so we can match it to your account.

    If it's been processed, please get in touch so we can look into it.

  • How is interest charged?

    We charge interest from the day you bought your item until the balance is fully paid (unless you're eligible for a promotional rate).

    You get up to 55 days interest free on all purchases if you pay in full.

Closing an account

  • Letting us know about a bereavement

    After you tell us, we'll make the process of closing the person's account as smooth as possible.

  • How do I close my account?

    You can close your account when you've paid off all you owe.

    To close your account please contact us.

promotional offers

  • How does buy now pay later work on my New Look card?

    You qualify if you've spent £50 or more in one transaction. It means your purchase is interest and payment free for up to 3 months. Interest will be charged on any balance left afterwards.

    If you pay on time and in full before the end of the period you won't be charged interest. Your monthly statement will tell you when your period ends, how much and when you need to pay.

  • What happens if I miss a payment?
