Unblock via Creditcard Online or with a PIN
You can also unblock your new card by making a payment using your PIN. The card will then immediately be ready for use. Extra card holders can also unblock the card by making a payment using a PIN. (You can’t activate/unblock your card by making a purchase online because you don’t use your PIN to do this.)

If your card is not working after you have activated it, please see these possible solutions.
Update your card details for websites and subscriptions
If your old card has been replaced, the details of your new card will be different. For example, it may have a new 16-digit card number or expiry date. If you have made purchases online using your old card, or if you use it to pay for online subscriptions, you will need to change the details on the website concerned. You can check what websites this might apply to in Creditcard Online.
