How do I activate a payee on my Bank of Ireland mobile app?

You can activate a payee using steps below. You must first add a payee using 365 online, mobile or tablet app.

When adding a Payee on the Mobile App you should receive the SMS Security code to enter into the app when prompted.

To activate payee at a later time follow these simple steps once logged in:

  1. Tap More in the bottom menu panel;
  2. Tap on Manage Payees;
  3. Choose the Payee that you want to activate from your list of registered Payees and tap Activate;
  4. Enter your 7 digit security code and tap Continue;
  5. Choose to make a payment to this payee now by tapping Yes.

Payees registered via App may only be activated by SMS Security.
