Joining the LINK Network

Membership benefits

LINK is a not-for-profit membership association owned and governed by card issuers and ATM operators. This allows LINK to keep costs and fees at a minimum, and maintain its position as the scheme of choice for UK ATM transactions.

LINK members are automatically provided with free detailed statistical information to help them manage their ATMs and card issuing effectively.

All LINK members have free access to the on-line near real-time Transaction Enquiry System to help them manage customer queries quickly and effectively.

Fraud detection and alert services are provided free of charge as part of the core service.

All services offered to participating institutions are supported by detailed service level agreements. Full monitoring and reporting against service level targets are provided and regular customer reviews are an integral part of LINK Scheme membership.
