Can I set up my NatWest Rooster Card on Apple or Google Pay?

Yes! Apple & Google Pay are now available if your child is 13 years or older. 

To connect the Rooster Card to the Apple/Google Wallet you will first need to make sure your child is logged into their own profile on the desired device and follow the below instructions:

  1. Click the Card on their homepage
  2. Click ‘Card Settings’ and then ‘Get Ready for Apple Pay / Google Pay’
  3. They will then see a screen in-app with the checklist that they need to complete to add their Rooster Card to the Apple/Google wallet.


Before you start:

To connect your child’s Rooster Card to Apple/Google Pay you will first need to make sure that:

  • Your child is 13 years or older 
  • Your child has their own Apple ID/Google Account
  • The device your child will be using is verified on your NatWest Rooster Money app 
  • Your child’s NatWest Rooster Money app has been on their device for at least 30 days
  • Your child’s name on their NatWest Rooster Money profile is an exact match to the name on their Apple ID/Google Account


Verify your child’s phone number:

As part of the Apple/Google Pay set-up checklist your child will also need to verify their phone number, this can be done via the child's profile by following these steps:

  1. In their own profile your child needs to select ‘Menu’ and then 'Confirm your Phone Number'
  2. On the next screen they should enter their phone number
  3. They will then be sent a One Time Password to enter in order to verify their phone number


Verifying your child’s phone number is only required to confirm that the device they are using is their own device, NatWest Rooster Money does not store this phone number once the device has been verified.

Your child can edit or update their phone number in the app by logging into their profile, then selecting Menu > My Settings > Profile settings to view and change their phone number.

Once you’ve completed the actions on the checklist, your child will be Apple/Google Pay ready.
