Joining the LINK Network

Overview

LINK is the UK's cash machine (ATM) network.

Virtually every cash machine in the UK is connected to LINK, and must display the LINK logo.

Cardholders cannot enjoy reliable nationwide access to UK cash machines unless their card issuer is part of LINK. All the UK's significant debit and ATM card issuers are LINK members.

There are nearly 100 million LINK-enabled cards in circulation.

Cash machine operators who want to deploy ATMs in the UK to acquire transactions from these cards must also join LINK.

LINK is an open scheme in which membership is open to any organisation that meets the membership criteria. Membership can either be as a card issuer, an ATM operator or both. Follow this link for more details of how to join the LINK network.
