This is available to customers with a linked bank account, other than those in the Lloyds Banking Group, which includes Lloyds, Halifax and Bank of Scotland accounts.
The feature is available on Android now with iOS on the way shortly.
If you have any feedback for us, we’d love to hear it, as always!
And check out our guide to the benefits of regular, long-term investing here:
This should not be read as personal investment advice and individual investors should make their own decisions or seek independent advice.
When you invest, your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest. Tax rules for ISAs and pensions can change and their benefits depend on your circumstances.
Thanks for the feedback @Eden. Don’t worry, we’ll get out to iOS shortly, thought we’d share the love with our Android users and go out to them first for this one
We’ve made this available to most banks (some more info here) but the reason it’s not available to some is because we don’t receive the full remitter information from some of them in the transaction. We’re working with Lloyds to fix this for their customers at the moment as we’d love to be able to offer it to them too.
while back when there was in-app funds transfer issue I was given bank details and ref number to do a bank transfer. It worked. Sent money from lloyds. Funds appeared immediately in the FT app. So set up a SO from the banking app rather than FT in-app.
Thanks for waiting Matthew.
I have confirmed with management that this issue with Freetrade is not an issue with the way we are sending our Standing Orders, rather it seems to be the way Freetrade’s new Standing Order system is currently operating.
It sounds as though they are working to fix this so hopefully this won’t impact you for too long.
