How to open an account in 3 minutes

Opening an account to get paid and manage your money can be simple. While many high-street banks have a complicated process and several requirements to open an account, at Pockit we streamlined our process so you can get your account opened with just a few simple steps.

What do I need to open an account online? 

You will need to fill out a simple form with your personal details: full name, date of birth, gender, marital status and nationality. We will also ask for your contact details: address, phone number and email. 

Please have some proof of identity at hand - at Pockit we accept a wide range of documents as proof of ID you can see the full list here.

What happens next? 

You’ll receive an email once your Pockit account is open and the details of your unique account number, sort code and virtual card will be available in your Pockit account.

That’s it: you can start using your account to receive money and make payments and your virtual card to shop online or add the details to Apple Pay/Google Pay to shop in-store with your smartphone.

If you want a physical card you can order one, or get free delivery when you top up £70 or more. 

Make your money go further

But wait, there’s more. At Pockit we are always looking for ways to help our customers save money or earn a little extra money on their everyday spend. Pay with your Pockit prepaid Mastercard® when you shop with one of our partners to earn up to 8% cashback and visit the gift card section of your account to save on groceries and top high street retailers.
