    Deciding which payment solution meets your needs

    With Bank of Ireland UK there are many ways you can make and receive payments. Deciding the best way to make a payment can be compared to the simple example of sending a product brochure to a customer. There are a number of options available to you e.g. standard post, express post, registered post, courier, email etc. Most likely, the option you choose will be dependent on your needs at the time and the importance you attach to a particular set of criteria, for instance is it important to get it there quickly? Do you have a particular budget to consider? Is security an issue?

    Let’s look at an example of paying a supplier:
