A reputation for integrity
Nationwide has raised awareness of ‘negative order of payments’ practice on credit cards and influenced the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills to include ‘order of payments’ in its review. Unlike many other credit card providers Nationwide operates a more customer friendly ‘positive’ order of payments which means that when you make a payment to reduce the balance on your credit card, they reduce your most expensive debt first.
Since 2008 Nationwide has campaigned for fairness in allocation of payments into the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and a fairer risk based scheme is now planned.
In October 2002 they became the first UK credit card issuer to introduce a 'summary box', outlining all the key rates and charges. As a result of Nationwide's leadership, all credit card issuers are now required to provide a summary box. They have launched a similar summary box for our current account and personal loan products.
