Using your Baselane Banking Debit Card

If the 3rd party accepts card payments, you can use your Baselane Banking debit card in-person or online to make payment.

Will my third party be notified of the incoming payment by Baselane?

If you are sending a payment to a third party via Baselane Banking, they will only receive an email notification from Baselane, if you add the recipient's email when adding the recipient. See here, for more details on adding and managing third party recipients.
