Nationwide have given me a generic sort code and account number and roll/ref number for my regular saver and I can't seem to find the option to put roll/ref number when setting up a standing order on Santander.

Use the generic sort code and a/c number, then put the roll number as the reference.

Sort code: Enter the 6-digit sort code.
Account number: Enter the 8-digit account number.
Reference: Enter roll number

Thanks, but this video doesn't explain it.

You're obsessed with banking OP. All your posts seem to be about banks. You don't need the roll number as long as the sort code and account number belongs to the person you're sending it to. Roll Numbers are just internal things to identity accounts that building societies use.

You do if it is generic saving account details. All payments go to the same sort code and account number and are allocated from there by the roll number.

Hence why I said of you are sure the account number and sort code belongs to the individual concerned it will go through without. Very few accounts that have roll numbers don't have a sort code and account number these days. What you said may have been true in the past, but not so much now.

​You need to put the roll number in the field marked "payment reference" on your standing order set up form. It's the field below "their account number" and above the field "usual payment amount".

Why does it bother you? This is Ask and I need help with my finance. You didn't need to read this or even waste your time giving a reply. Nationwide informed that the generic sort code and account number only means the payment goes to a Nationwide account but the roll/ref number will mean my specific (regular saver) account.

​Enter it exactly, if there's a slash include that.
