About this app

Tesco Pay+ is a really simple and easy way to pay for your shopping in Tesco with a single scan of your phone.

You can register with your Tesco account, or just create a new one within the app. And then add one or more payment cards.

All you have to do is scan the payment barcode when you pay in Tesco, and you can shop and collect Clubcard points at the same time.

Fast, safer and contactless

- You can pay up to £250 per transaction in any UK Tesco store or petrol station, with a single scan of your phone.
- You don't need a mobile connection to checkout - you can even pay when your phone is offline.
- You can set up the app on up to two phones and add one or more payment cards to your account.
-We accept any UK debit or credit card - Visa, Mastercard, Amex. If you like, you can personalise your payment cards with a nickname.

Bank-level security

- We encrypt your card details and they’ll never be stored on your phone.
- Your payment barcode can only be used once - it can’t be copied or cloned.
- If you lose your phone or if it’s stolen, you can immediately lock your account at pay-plus.tesco.com.
- The app has two-factor authentication for additional security and is protected by PIN and fingerprint/face ID.
- To help keep you safe, we’ll sign you out of your account if you don’t use it for a while.
- You’ll get real time notifications every time you complete a payment so you can keep an eye on your account.


- You can check your payment history on the Transactions page.
- You can keep track of how much you spend in Tesco each month.

Tesco Pay+ is operated by Tesco Bank.

Love the idea but...... On the last two occasions when I've been at the checkout wanting to pay, the app has asked me to enter my password even though I've got biometrics set up. As my passwords tend to be different, it's not always easy for me to remember it - and being under pressure to pay doesn't help! Staff have said to try disconnecting from the store wifi and try again, but by then it's easier to pull my card out of my wallet and pay by that. I'm seriously questioning the benefit now.

It would be so much better if it was linked to the Clubcard app and you could choose to automatically apply eligible coupons. As it is you have to open the app, search the coupons, apply them and then open pay+ to pay. And if you have to log into any of them it just takes too long. Might as well just use the Clubcard app for coupons and points and then pay by Google wallet.

Works great, just some opportunities to improve. I never take anything other than my phone in to the store now, the app scans every time (as long as the screen brightness is turned up). The only thing that would be great is to link this up with the online ordering. Sometimes I shop in store, sometimes I order a delivery. As it's all connected via my Club card (and the same account details) it would be brilliant if the app showed all my spending with Tesco.
