• Guidance: importing payments to Commercial Banking Online for LloydsLink customers

    Importing payment files

    Importing payments to Commercial Banking Online will differ from importing payments on LloydsLink in the following ways:

    • The file layout has changed and you will need to edit your payment import files or you will not be able to import payments on Commercial Banking Online.
    • Field validation rules have changed in Commercial Banking Online and you will need to make changes to your existing payment import files.
    • There are additional mandatory fields on payment import files and some existing mandatory fields are no longer required.
    • Payments can be imported as individual payments or as a file containing multiple payments. Single payments will be shown individually but files will be shown as one entry.
    • You can mix payment types within a file, including inter-account transfers (except Bacs multiple) on Commercial Banking Online.

    The same file types you use on LloydsLink are available on Commercial Banking Online. We recommend you continue to import payments using the same file type you use at the moment.

    If you are currently using TXT you can still use this to upload using CSV, as long as it has the correct format.

    International Draft is currently not available on Commercial Banking Online.
