Direct debits on a savings account

Found 14th Apr
Ive messed up, took out a phone contract last week at carphone warehouse instore and when i filled bank details in i gave my savings account bank account number by mistake. Cant speak to them right now as they are shut, anyone know what will happen? Will the bank (natwest) reject the direct debit or will it be okay? Bit worried as i will end up getting a mark on my credit file for a missed payment if it doesn’t get paid.

Carphone warehouse have a live chat service, it says open until 10pm tonight. They may be able help.
You can always make the payment manually I think from your online account.

I know with O2 for example I can make card payments if I want to when I go into my account.
It will be rejected if the account does not allow direct debits.

Hopefully, the collection date is in the future otherwise you will have incurred an unpaid strike (reason code F - Invalid account type. Paying bank does not allow Direct Debits on this type of account. Service user will need to obtain new account details from the payer. The Direct Debit cannot be applied)
