Today I have used the Top Up function from the app for the first time in several months. And I am most impressed! The connection to my Santander current account took seconds, the authorisation was near instant, but best of all, in the 2 seconds it took to get back from my Santander to my Tesco app, my money was sitting in my Clubcard Pay account, ready to be spent 😎. As an added bonus, there is now no residual authorisation for Tesco recorded in my Santander account. So I am happy all round 😃
Way to go Tesco, this is a great improvement to how it used to work, and definitely now my preferred method for topping up.
NB. I am on an iPhone 13, am connected via my home WiFi, and use FaceID for logging into my accounts.
