Mobile payments

Give your customers the chance to make fast, simple and safe payments, purchases or donations – wherever they are and whenever they want. Get smart to the power of the smartphone.

Is it right for you?

  • Customers can pay bills, buy your products directly and even make Gift-Aid-enabled donations – with no need to provide bank or card details
  • You can easily integrate mobile payments alongside other payment methods, giving your customers more ways to pay
  • Thanks to faster receipt and increased flexibility, mobile payments could help to improve your cashflow, increase engagement and grow your business
  • Mobile payments can’t be recalled and they clear immediately, similar to the way faster payments are made
  • There are currently three main providers that allow consumers to make and receive mobile push payments. Barclays supports all three systems and helps you seamlessly integrate these into your existing payment platform.

Pingit – the first dedicated push payment app in the UK, launched by Barclays in 2012. Last year, more than £1bn was transferred using the app. Today there are over three million registered users and over 75,000 businesses that accept Pingit

Paym – launched in April 2014, Paym now has over three million registered users. There are 16 participating banks and building societies that support the service, enabling P2P payments to be sent using just a mobile phone number rather than requiring a sort code and account number

Pay by Bank app – allows multiple bank apps to support a single mobile payment option, so participating businesses can accept payments from customers who use any compatible bank app, such as Pingit.

How it helps you

  • It’s easier for your customers – it gives them a quick, secure way to pay using their mobile or tablet
  • Customers can pay wherever they are and whenever they want, which can help reduce the number of abandoned baskets at checkout
  • You can position your company as a cutting-edge, consumer-friendly innovator
  • It uses existing payment and reporting systems which could help you save on admin, and you won’t need to take card and bank account details
  • No PCI-DSS requirements – mobile payments from Barclays utilise account-based payments so PCI-DSS is not required
  • Mobile retail is set to be the fastest-growing channel over the next ten years1, so mobile payments could help you benefit from this trend.
