2. Fees, charges and other costs
2.1 Information for comparison
APR: See your APR in the app
Total Amount Payable: See this in your app
When we work out the APR and Total Amount Payable, regulations require us to assume that:
- you make one purchase of credit limit at the start of the agreement.
- we charge your monthly or annual membership fee on the first day of the month after you enter this agreement and on the same date each month or year thereafter unless you switch between annually to monthly or vice versa.
- there’s no change in the interest rate and no other fees or charges apply; and
- you repay any monthly or annual membership fee on the day we charge it to the account and everything else in 12 equal monthly payments.
2.2 Interest rates
Explaining Interest Rates
Simple Rates: Your simple interest rate is what we use to work out how much interest you’ll be charged each month. It moves in line with the Bank of England Base Rate (we call this the Base Rate as we explain below) – when the Base Rate changes, you’ll see your simple rate change by exactly the same amount. Your simple rate is comprised of two components – your Personal Rate (this is set out in the “Simple Rate” definition, below) plus the Base Rate.
Compounding Interest: We use your simple interest rate to work out the interest we charge you. We calculate the interest charge on unpaid transactions daily and then add the interest to your account every month when we produce your statement. If you do not pay your balance in full each month, we will charge interest on interest. This is called ‘compounding’. As this rate includes the payment of interest on interest, it will be greater than your Simple Rate. This means that whenever the Base Rate changes or there is a change to your Personal Rate, the change in the Compound Rate will be a slightly higher than the change in the Simple Rate.
- The “Simple Rate” is a variable rate comprised of two parts (1) a Personal Rate of 21.47% and (2) the prevailing Base Rate (for these purposes this is assumed to be 3.00%).
- “Base Rate” means the Bank of England Rate that is regularly published by the Bank of England and may change from time to time (or, if the Bank of England Base Rate is no longer published, any replacement rate that we reasonably select as the nearest equivalent rate to apply).
- Section 5 “Changes to the Base Rate” below provides more information on what happens if the Base Rate changes.
- The Base Rate element of your Simple Rate will never be less than 0%.
Purchase transactions (not including the card membership fee):
- Compound Rate: 27.71%
- Simple Rate: 24.47%
Cash advances (including any transactions we tell you we treat as cash advances but always excluding gambling transactions, quasi-cash transactions, cash advances in sanctioned countries, illegal transactions and cashback):
- Compound Rate: 27.71%
- Simple Rate: 24.47%
2.3 Fees and charges
Collection costs: All reasonable expenses and costs we may incur in taking other steps to enforce our rights against you under the credit agreement including debt collection costs and all legal costs and charges for issuing court proceedings and pursuing a claim against you.
Tracing fees: All expenses and costs that we may incur in tracing you if you change address without first notifying us.
Replacement Card: First replacement card per year: £0; Additional replacement cards (above one): £40
Membership:* £15.00 monthly or £160 annually
* (if you choose to pay monthly) We'll charge your monthly membership fee on the first day of the month after you enter this agreement. For example, if you sign-up on the 18th of July, your first monthly fee will be on the 1st of August and all subsequent monthly fees will be charged on the 1st of every subsequent month unless you elect to switch to pay the membership fee on an annual basis. We don’t do any confusing pro rata billing.
* (if you choose to pay annually) We’ll charge your annual membership fee on the first day of the month after you enter this agreement. For example if you sign-up on the 18th of July, your annual fee will be charged on 1st August and subsequent annual fees will be charged on 1st August in the following years unless you switch to pay the membership fee on a monthly basis. (See “Membership Fees” in Part 2 for more information on switching between monthly and annual membership fees.
2.4 Applying interest
When is interest payable?
We charge interest from the date a purchase transaction is charged to your account or a cash advance is taken until it is paid in full except if you always pay the full amount you owe on each statement date (as shown on your statement) by each payment due date.
- When you won't pay interest on purchases or cash advances: If you paid the full amount you owe in June and in July, we won't charge interest on any purchase transactions or cash advance drawn down and charged to your account in July and shown in your July statement.
- When you'll pay interest on purchases or cash advances: If you didn't pay the full amount you owe in June, we'll charge interest on any purchase or cash advance drawn down and charged to your account in June and July, even if you pay the full amount you owe in July.
How we work out interest on your account
We convert the annual simple interest rate for each type of transaction into a daily rate (using the actual number of days in a year). We then apply this rate to the amount you owe each day for each type of transaction; and then on each statement date, add the interest charge for each type of transaction to your account.
3. How much can you borrow?
What is the credit limit?
The credit limit is available in the app; We will continuously monitor your credit limit and can adjust it (up or down) by giving you notice. Unless you've told us to apply credit limit increases to your account automatically, you'll need to accept an increase before we apply it to your account.
You can also at any time:
- lower your credit limit to your choosing to the nearest £100 and we'll always reduce it
- advise that you don't want to receive any future credit limit increases; or
- advise us to never increase your credit limit without you expressly agreeing to the increase
You can make any of these changes on your mobile application either via the appropriate screens or advise us to via the in-app chat functionality.
From time to time, we may also tell you that a credit limit increase is available. If we do this, you can choose to exercise your right to that higher credit limit within the time we tell you (which will be at least 30 days).
A higher credit limit may offer greater flexibility and convenience to meet your financial needs, but it may also increase the risk of borrowing too much, which could be expensive or take a long time to pay off. You should carefully consider whether you need a higher limit.
Limits for Different Uses or Transactions
We may set and vary limits and restrictions on certain uses of the card or certain transactions. For example, cash advances or contactless purchases may be subject to maximum amounts. You can find out if there are such limits by checking on your mobile application or on this Agreement.
Keeping within your credit limit
You balance should not go over the credit limit. If we allow a transaction that takes you over your limit, we will ask you to pay enough into the account to bring it back within the limit immediately.
4. How are repayments to be made?
When you need to make payment
You must pay at least the minimum payment each month by the due date shown on your statement. This will be the same date you elect each month. For example, if your due date is the 15th of the month, it will always be on the 15th of the month. You cannot elect the 29th, 30th or the 31st of the month.
You can always pay more than the minimum payment to reduce the amount you owe and the amount of interest you have to pay.
How we calculate your minimum payment due
The minimum payment is the higher of the following amounts:
- £35 (or the total amount you owe if less); or
- 5% of the statement balance plus interest and charges
5. Can this agreement be changed?
When we make changes
As this agreement is not for a fixed period, we're likely to need to make changes to interest rates, fees and other terms and the services we provide for reasons we can’t predict when the agreement was made. The Simple Rate will also change in line with changes in the Base Rate.
We've set out some specific reasons for making changes to the agreement but if any of these don’t apply, we may still make a change as long as we:
- tell you in advance about the change; and
- make clear that you can end the agreement without additional charge if you don't want to accept the change
Changes in the Base Rate
If the Base Rate changes, the Simple Rate will also change. Changes to the Base Rate will be applied to your account from the day after your next statement date, except as follows:
- We can choose not to apply (or choose to delay) an increase to your interest rate which would otherwise apply because of an increase in the Base Rate at any time.
- If there’s been a Base Rate change in the 60 days before you signed this agreement which means that the Base Rate is different from the assumed rate shown in the Interest Rate section (section 2.2) of this agreement, we will delay giving effect to the change until the day after your second statement date, and we will notify you of the changed rate on your second statement. If there has been a decrease in the Base Rate, this will take effect from the day after your first statement date, and we will notify you of the changed rate on your first statement.
- As the Base Rate we apply will never go below 0%, this means that we will disregard any change to the Base Rate while it remains below 0%.
Our main reasons for changes (other than changes in the Base Rate)
We can change the agreement, including by changing: your Personal Rate element of the Simple Rate, the way interest rate changes take effect or the way we charge or calculate interest (this might include moving away from a basis where the interest rate tracks the Base Rate completely to some other basis), or changing or introducing fees for any of the following reasons:
- where the costs to us of providing your account change or we have a good reason to expect that they will change.
- where we're changing the way you can use the account.
- where we're changing the membership benefits offered with your account.
- where the change is either good for you (including where we're making the change to improve the security of your account or we're making the agreement clearer or fairer) or neutral.
- to reflect changes or developments in the technology or systems which we use.
- where we're making the change to reflect a change in law, regulation or industry codes of practice (including where we have a good reason to expect a change), or to reflect a decision by a court, regulator or the Financial Ombudsman Service (or equivalent); or
- where we have a good reason to think that a change in your circumstances means that the risk that you might not be able to repay us has increased.
Telling you about changes
We will let you know about changes to the Base Rate by emailing you on your contact email address. We may introduce other ways of telling you about changes to the Base Rate, but we will tell you about the new way before introducing it.
If we're changing your interest rate because the Base Rate has changed, we will email you on your contact email address before the change takes effect. We will tell you what the change has been to the Base Rate and how that change will affect payments to be made, using an example.
If we’re increasing your interest rate because we are increasing your Personal Rate, we'll give you at least 60 days’ advance notice of the change and you'll be able to opt out of the increase by notifying us before it takes effect as explained below.
For all other changes, we'll give you at least 30 days' advance notice of the change, unless the change is not to your disadvantage. In this case, we'll give you notice but we may make the change more quickly. We'll always give you details of when the change will take effect. If you don't want to accept any change, then you can always end this agreement by paying off all the amounts you owe us and telling us to close your account (see 'Ending your agreement' in Part 2). If you don't do this, we’ll assume you've accepted the change.
How to opt out of an interest rate increase
You cannot opt out of interest rate increases resulting from changes in the Base Rate, but you can opt out of an increase in your Personal Rate and carry on paying off what you owe us at the old rate. If you would like to do this, you must tell us within 60 days of us telling you about the proposed increase in your Personal Rate. Your account will then be suspended and you will not be able to make further purchase transactions with immediate effect. This agreement will stay in place until you've paid everything off, and you'll still have to keep to the agreement – membership fees will continue to be charged. If you do opt out, the interest rate on your account will remain at the level it was when you opted out and will not continue to change in line with changes in the Base Rate. Until you’ve paid off everything, we'll still be able to change any of the other terms of the agreement except your Personal Rate.
Benefits offered with your account
Membership benefits that are offered with your account (for example, rewards points and insurance cover). Full details are set out in Part 2 of this agreement.

Signing the agreement
This document (Part 1), together with the "How your Yonder Account Works" document (Part 2) make up your agreement. You should read both Parts before you activate your physical card or make your first purchase. We will request that you sign via your mobile application. You'll find a link to your full agreement, including Part 2, on your mobile application when signing.
PART 2 OF YOUR AGREEMENT: How Your Yonder Account Works
Using the card
You may use the card up to your credit limit for purchases and for cash advances subject to the stipulated limits and if we tell you, for other types of transaction we may allow.
Using a third party provider (TPP)
A TPP is a third party service provider that's authorised by or registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) or another European Economic Area (EEA) regulator or otherwise permitted by law to access your account information.
You can choose to authorise TPPs to provide services to you by accessing your account. If you use a TPP, the terms of this agreement will still apply. We'll give the TPP access to the same account information that you'd be able to access if you were dealing with us online.
We may also refuse to allow a TPP to access your account if we're concerned about unauthorised or fraudulent access by that TPP. If we do, we'll tell you why in the way we think most appropriate (unless doing so would compromise our reasonable security measures or otherwise be unlawful).
How you can authorise and cancel transactions
To access the credit available to you, you authorise a transaction by presenting a card or providing your account details and, if required, using your security details (such as a PIN, passcode, personal identifiers, biometric data or other details).
You can't cancel purchases you make with a card, but you can cancel other transactions that you’ve asked us to make in the future or regular payments (such as monthly direct debits).
When we can refuse to make a transaction
We may refuse to authorise a transaction if:
- we have reasonable grounds to suspect unauthorised or improper use or fraud;
- we reasonably consider that acting on your instructions might lead to:
- a breach of law, regulation, code or other obligation; or
- action from a government, law enforcement agency or regulator;
- we're legally required to;
- use of the card would be prohibited;
- you have insufficient credit available;
- the transaction would exceed the Transaction Limit of some sort or take your account over your credit limit or
- the transaction is not permissible under the terms of this credit agreement.
In respect of purchase transactions, the Transaction Limit is (subject to your credit limit) £10,000 per day, 100 transactions per day and 300 transactions every seven days. In respect of cash advances, the Transaction Limit is (subject to your credit limit) £150 per day, 3 transactions per day and 5 transactions every seven days.
You may not use your account for illegal activities or in a manner which disguises the true nature of the transaction, for example, by obtaining cash through a transaction which you know will be treated as a purchase of goods and services, or by using your card at a merchant you own or control.
If we do refuse a transaction, you'll normally be told at the point of sale. In all cases, you can find out about transactions we've refused, including the reasons why or any limits we may have put on your card, via our in-app chat on your mobile application. We'll let you know this information unless the law or any regulation prevents us from doing so or for fraud prevention or security reasons.
You can use the Yonder Card to carry out a transaction at any merchant which accepts Mastercard. Certain merchants may not accept transactions made through the Yonder Card and neither we nor TPL accepts any liability for a merchant's inability to accept payments made through the Yonder Card. It is your responsibility to check what restrictions a merchant may apply.
Transactions you haven't authorised
You're not responsible for any transactions:
- made using the actual card before you receive it (for example, if your card is stolen in the post);
- where we haven't told you how you can contact us to notify us that your card or security details have been lost, stolen or compromised;
- if we fail to apply procedures that we're legally required to use to check that a payment has been authorised by you;
- not authorised by you or any person you allowed, in breach of the agreement, to use your account or card;
You're responsible if you:
- use your account or card fraudulently
If there are errors in a transaction and this is our fault, we'll give you a refund of the amount of the payment plus any extra interest and charges that you incur as a result, provided you tell us about the errors without undue delay and in any event no later than 13 months after the date on which the transaction as debited to your account. We may then resubmit the correct transaction.
If upon contacting us, you wish to dispute a transaction, we'll initiate an inquiry and may suspend the transaction on your account if we reasonably consider there to be a valid dispute. Once investigations are complete, we'll adjust your account accordingly.
Transactions for unexpected amounts
If you make a purchase and at the time that you authorised it, you didn’t know exactly how much you were going to be charged (for example, at a hotel check-in) you can request a refund from us if the amount charged is more than you reasonably expect and you ask for the refund within 8 weeks from the date of the statement on which the purchase appears.
You'll need to provide us with all the information we reasonably ask for and we may provide this information (including personal information) to third parties investigating your claim. We'll conclude our investigation within 10 business days of us receiving all required information and either make the refund or tell you why we've refused your claim.
You're not entitled to a refund if you gave consent for a transaction directly to us and, at least four weeks before the transaction was made, you were given information about the transaction (or it was made available to you) by us or the retailer. For example, at the time you placed an order, the exact amount was unknown but was later confirmed to you at least four weeks before your card was charged.
Theft, loss or misuse of the card or account
- keep it safe and secure (including using device passcodes, biometric data or other security details where applicable)
- not let others use the account or card and regularly check you still have the card
- not give the card or card number to anyone else other than us, or for the purpose of making a transaction and not share your security details with anyone else (other than us or a TPP if it’s necessary to do so)
- choose a PIN or passcode that is not easy to guess
You must have the Yonder mobile application installed on your device to enable management of your account. As part of this you must:
- keep your device and your security details safe and secure at all times, in the same way you would your card or PIN.
- always use the lock feature on the phone or other device, where applicable.
- never share your security details or allow another person to have access to the device in a way which allows them to make transactions using the card registered on the device.
You must tell us straight away if you suspect:
- a card has been lost or stolen or not received.
- a mobile phone or other device to which a card has been registered has been lost, stolen or compromised.
- someone else knows a PIN or other security details, or
- the account or a card is being misused or used without authorisation, or a transaction on the account has not been authorised or has been processed incorrectly.
Our contact details are at the beginning of this agreement. You must keep your security details (such as your username, password or other details) and also your mobile phone or other device to which the card has been registered safe and secure.
How much and when you must pay
You must pay the minimum payment by the payment due date shown on your statement, but you can always pay more than the minimum payment due.
If we don't ask you to pay any arrears, they'll be due with your minimum payment. We'll use any payment you make to pay off arrears before any other amounts you owe us.
We won't treat any payment we make into your account or any refund given by a retailer for a purchase as payment made by you.
If you pay more than you owe us under this agreement, we'll return the amount you've overpaid.
How to pay
You must make payments to us in Pounds Sterling by any method set out on your statement or any method we otherwise tell you about or permit you to use.
We'll apply any payment to your account on the day we receive it, as long as this is within our business hours. We'll apply any payment we receive after that time on the next business day.
How we apply payments
We pay off amounts you owe at the highest interest rates before amounts charged at lower interest rates and we'll apply payments to amounts that have appeared on your statements before amounts that have not yet appeared on your statements.
You can choose to switch from paying your membership fee monthly to annually and vice versa. You can do this within the mobile application. Should you switch from monthly to annually, your first annual fee will be due on the first day of the month following on expiry of the monthly fee and annually thereafter. If you switch from annual to monthly, your first monthly fee will be due on the first day of the month following on expiry of the annual fee.
In the event that you pay the membership fee annually and choose to end this agreement you will be charged an amount equivalent to the monthly membership fee for each month before the agreement ended and the balance of the annual membership fee will be credited to your account.
Missing payments can have serious consequences. It could mean:
- your credit rating may be affected, making it more difficult or expensive to obtain credit; and
- legal action (which could include getting a court order giving us the right to payment out of the sale proceeds for your home or other property) or bankruptcy proceedings may be taken against you to recover any debt owed under this agreement.
Payments into your account by mistake
If we make a payment into your account by mistake or as a result of a systems error, we'll automatically take the amount out of your account.
If we're told that a payment was made into your account as a result of someone else’s mistake (for example, if the payer gave the wrong account number or reference), but, when we contact you, you tell us the payment was intended for you, we may be legally required to share all relevant information including your name and address and transaction information with the bank the payment came from if they ask us so that the payer may contact you.
Converting transactions made in a foreign currency
If we receive a transaction or refund for processing in a foreign currency, we'll convert it into Pounds Sterling on the date it's processed (which may be different to the date of the transaction or refund). This means that the exchange rate used may differ from the rate that applied on the date of your transaction or refund. Exchange rate fluctuations can be significant.
The exchange rate we use will be the Mastercard foreign exchange rate and we will not apply a transaction charge.
In order to allow you to compare charges for currency conversion, you can view the real-time percentage difference between the amount that will be charged on your Card for a foreign currency Transaction (consisting of the mark-up applied by Mastercard) and the latest available euro foreign exchange rates issued by the European Central Bank. You can view this information on the Yonder website. We do not add any additional mark up to the exchange rate.
When you make a transaction in a foreign currency, you may be given the option of allowing a third party (for example, the retailer) to convert your transaction into Pounds Sterling before submitting it to us. If you decide to do this, the exchange rate and any commission or charge will be set by the third party and may include a commission or charge. As we'll receive a transaction converted by a third party in Pounds Sterling, we won't apply a non-sterling transaction fee.
Statements and legal notices
We'll send statements to you via your mobile application monthly. This will include detail on your activity for the month.
We may send you notices (including any information we're legally required to send you, such as information about changes to this agreement or other agreements we have with you) on or together with your statements.
In addition to payment information, each statement will show all transactions and amounts charged to your account in the statement period and the total account balance.
Always check each statement and contact us as soon as possible if you need more information about anything.
Where we are required to do so by law, we will send certain legal notices to you by post.
We may send you important messages and other communications (including alerts about certain activity on your account) about your account, card or membership benefits in line with your preferences. This could be by email, SMS, mobile push notifications or via your statements on your mobile application. For example, we may send you an alert to confirm that you've updated your contact information.
There are some messages we need to send you (such as statements of your account or security alerts), but you can opt out of receiving other alerts or communications (such as marketing) by updating your preferences on your mobile application or contacting us via the in-app mobile chat.
If we need to contact you about any actual or suspected fraud or security threats, we'll do this using the fastest and most secure way of contacting you (for example, we may try to send you a text message rather than calling you).
Changing your contact details
We'll use your most recent contact details to contact you. You must notify us immediately if you change the mailing address or email address.
We may update your contact details if we receive information that they have changed or are incorrect. If we've been unable to deliver any communications or these have been returned, we may stop attempting to communicate with you until we receive accurate contact information.
Any legal notices will be posted to you on your mobile application or sent to your last known mailing address or email address.
Suspending your account
We may suspend your account or any feature on your account if:
- you tell us to close your account, or we tell you we are closing your account.
- we consider it necessary for the security of the account.
- you're in breach of the agreement.
- we are required to do so for any legal, regulatory or financial crime prevention purposes.
- we reasonably believe that any information you have given to us is untrue, incomplete, incorrect or misleading in any material respect.
- we cannot process your transactions due to the actions of third parties.
- we suspect unauthorised, negligent, improper and/or fraudulent use.
- we reasonably think there's a significantly increased risk that you'll not be able to repay us; and
- you've repaid more in interest and charges than the amount you've borrowed on your card for a sustained period.
We'll normally notify you beforehand or immediately afterwards and may provide you with the reasons.
If your account is suspended, you must not use the card and inform retailers not to seek to take any further payments from your account. We'll allow you to use the account, if the reasons we suspended your account in the first place no longer apply. You can tell us this is the case and request reinstatement via live chat within our mobile app or via email.
Ending your agreement
This agreement is open ended and, subject to an initial three months minimum duration, it has no fixed duration. On expiry of the initial three month period, you and we can end it without giving any reason. You can do this at any time in your mobile application, by calling us or writing to us (our contact details are at the beginning of this agreement) to tell us to close your account and by paying off all the amounts you owe.
We can do this by giving you at least two months' written notice, but we may end this agreement immediately if:
- you repeatedly fail to pay minimum payments on time or go over your credit limit
- you seriously or persistently breach this agreement
- you give us false or misleading information
- steps are taken to make you bankrupt or to make you the subject of any form of debt relief process
- we reasonably consider that by continuing the agreement we might:
- breach a law, regulation, code or other obligation; or
- face action from a government, law enforcement agency or regulator
- you become incapacitated or die
- you behave in an abusive or threatening way to our staff or
- we have reasonable grounds to believe you're unable or unwilling to pay your debts when due
In any of these circumstances and subject to the requirements of the Consumer Credit Act 1974, we may close your account and require you to repay immediately all amounts you owe us under this agreement in full together with any interest and charges that apply.
If you're having or may have difficulty making payments, please contact us as soon as you can. We'll always follow any legal requirements to provide you with notices before we end the agreement.
The agreement will only come to an end once you've paid off all amounts you owe us. Until then:
- all of the terms of the agreement will continue to apply (including our right to change the terms of the agreement)
- you will have no rights under it to use the account or the card to make transactions; and
- your card benefits will stop
You must destroy all cards when the agreement ends.

You will not earn Points for cash advances. When you are in arrears or otherwise in breach of this agreement, you will not be entitled to earn or redeem your Points.
Redeem Points with Yonder Local Experiences
You can redeem Points for Local Experiences. Local Experiences are dining, social, active and cultural experiences curated by our team, updated every month and redeemable through the mobile application.
We will cover the cost of the entire Local Experience (subject to a fair usage limit which is outlined within the mobile application and dependent on the Local Experience selected).
Details of available Local Experiences will be updated in the mobile application.
Redeem your Points for a cash equivalent credit
You can redeem your Points for a cash equivalent amount to be credited to your account at any time. As an example, 20,000 Points is worth £100. Points redeemed in this way will be set off against the balance outstanding on your account. If there is no balance outstanding the cash equivalent amount will remain on your account to be set off against future transactions. Points redeemed in this way are not redeemable as cash.
