Confirmation of Payee – Countdown to October 2024, 29th February, 3 PM GMT

After the peak of APP Fraud losses in 2021, CoP contributed to a 17% reduction in 2022, despite over 100,000 cases amounting to £482 million. However, implementing CoP takes a lot more planning and a longer testing window than many PSPs might think. PSPs also need to be aware of the ramifications of the Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) Mandatory Reimbursement bill that will also come into force in 2024, which places the responsibility of a fraudulent transaction on both the sending and receiving firms, with them splitting the costs of reimbursement 50:50.

“The element of scarcity of resources should motivate Group Two to ‘get going’ ASAP. After all, there are only so many CoP vendors and only so many Project Managers at those vendors to manage the implementation”. Nick Warner, Project Manager, Cambridge Building Society, went ‘Live’ with CoP in September 2022.

Group 2 is under pressure to meet the deadline as best practice is to have been in testing for at least six weeks prior to the October deadline. Therefore, this webinar with Bottomline, Pay.UK and the Payments System Regulator is designed to get PSPs back on track with expert advice.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
