    I've basically got a new card and I think these things stay the same as the previous card, do they need your long number on the front or security code?

    Neither. The number on the front of your card is *NOT* your bank account number and will be nothing to do with what SF what to know. The security number on the back of the card is an extra layer of security when you use the card. Again, it is not involved in the SF payment process.

    Your bank account number is the number - usually 8 digits - shown on your online or paper statements. It will remain the same, regardless of what your card number is.

    Your bank's sort code is the 6 digit number which you will usually find in the format XX-XX-XX on your statement. It identifies your bank branch or bank processing centre.
