Login

You would have created a password and passcode when you first registered for Online Account Manager.

If you have forgotten these, click Password or Passcode Reset on the login page.

Simply follow the instructions on the login page to get a reminder of your username.

A one-time passcode (OTP) is a unique code that will be sent to the mobile or home phone number registered to your account to authorise certain actions, such as online transactions.

The OTP acts like a key, helping to prevent anyone else from authorising these actions. You should always review the full OTP message you receive, checking it accurately describes the action you have requested. Never share your OTP with another person. You will not normally be charged for receiving an OTP.

If you don't have a mobile phone, we will send OTPs to your landline.

We'll never ask you to give us your details in an email or message.

Giving us your mobile phone number will help us keep your account more secure.

  • We will use it to confirm it’s you logging into your online account or the John Lewis Credit Card app.
  • We may use it to verify it’s you making purchases online with your card.
  • If there’s suspected fraud on your account we will use it to text you an alert or to contact you directly.
  • You can use it to set up text alerts and controls to help you monitor your account.


If you need to update your details, please visit ‘Personal Details’ in our John Lewis Credit Card app or Online Account Manager to change your details. This includes your address, telephone number and email address. Please keep these up to date so we have the correct information for your account. You can only change details on your account once you've fully activated your account.

If you haven’t received your OTP after requesting it, please try the following:
Check that we hold the correct mobile number for you. This will be displayed on the OTP request screen. If you think your number is incorrect, you can update your details in the Online Account Manager or the John Lewis Credit Card app.

Once you request an OTP, you need a network connection in order to receive it. When making your request, please ensure that your mobile phone is:

  • fully switched on
  • not in ‘Flight mode’ or ‘Airplane mode’ and
  • able to make and receive texts or calls.


Otherwise, we won’t be able to send you an OTP.

If you have a good network connection and you’re not in ‘Flight mode’ but still didn’t receive the OTP, please try restarting your phone and then re-request the OTP.

If you’re struggling to get a network connection, you can set up Wi-Fi calling, which will also enable you to receive your OTP. To find out how to do this, please see the guides below:

Trusting your device means we won’t need to send you an OTP to verify it’s you every time you log in. Making it a quicker log in process.
