Keeping track of your card payments
Retailers are required to give you a receipt for card payments in a shop, and you can request a receipt for contactless payments.
You may receive paper or online statements from your card issuer. You can usually set up online access to a card account so you can see payments and balances as soon as they are updated.
Some card issuers also offer mobile apps which allow you to track your payments on your phone.
Your card issuer may also be able to provide you with notifications via text or email, for example when:
- payments are due
- an assigned monthly spend has been reached
- a balance threshold has been reached
- a charge (such as overdraft) is likely to be made
- a sufficient balance has been reached to allow money to be transferred to savings.
Speak to your card issuer about what options are available to you.
