The Barclays app features

What the app can do

Make payments

Payments icon

Payments on the go

Transfer money and pay recent or new payees quickly and safely, all from the app. You can also edit your Direct Debit instructions and standing orders. Simply select ‘Manage payments’ from the ‘Quick links’ menu.



Pay in a cheque

Pay in cheques to your current account using the app and your smartphone’s camera. Just tell us the amount and payee details, take a photo of the cheque, tap 'Submit' and the money will be in your account by the next working day1.

International payments icon

International payments

Send money overseas in 7 different currencies. Simply tap ‘Pay & Transfers’ at the bottom of the app, then select who you’re paying and when.

contactless payments icon

Contactless mobile payments

Use your Android and Apple mobile for contactless payments by connecting them to your card.


Spend in Euros and US Dollars

Create a ‘Travel Wallet’ in your app and spend both Euros and US dollars straight from your debit card. You’ll lock in an exchange rate and won’t pay fees when making purchases or withdrawing cash abroad in the local currency2. Plus, any unused currency can be exchanged back into British Pounds, ready for you to spend in your account – so no more wasted change.
