Signing up to Zilch is quick and easy, and you can do it in the Zilch app with just a few taps. Don't have the app? You can get it from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).

Make a Zilch account

Open the app and select Create account, then follow the instructions. We'll run a soft credit check and need to verify your ID as part of getting your account set up.

What do I need to make an account?

You'll need the following to make a Zilch account:

  • A valid UK debit card

  • A UK-based postal address

  • A mobile phone number

  • An email address

To issue your Zilch card, we'll also need the following:

Will Zilch run a credit check?

Yes, we run a soft credit check when you sign up, but this won't affect your credit score. We're a responsible lender, so we need to run a credit check to make sure we don't offer you more than we think you can comfortably afford.

Why can't I make an account?

You must meet our eligibility criteria to open a Zilch account.
