Why is the customer not receiving their One Time Passcode?

If a customer hasn’t received the code it may be that they have entered their customer ID or password incorrectly on the login page.  They should select cancel and start again, or reset their password.

They should also check the mobile signal / landline to ensure they have not barred incoming calls.

If they still do not receive the OTP they should call our Contact Centre on the usual help line number.
