Confirmation of Payee (CoP) is an account name checking service that helps to make sure payments are sent to the correct recipient.

Where an account is not available through Confirmation of Payee, whether temporarily or otherwise, customers and businesses will be notified that the name is unable to be confirmed.

Mettle are currently in the process of rolling out Confirmation of Payee for inbound payments. More information can be found here.

Customers and businesses should follow guidance given by their account provider and may wish to take additional steps to ensure that their payment is being made to the correct payee, particularly if they have been asked to pay an amended, or new, account.
