Contingency Payment Access

Give yourself a payment Plan B for when you can’t follow your usual payments workflow, for whatever reason.

  • Web based stand-alone payments channel, which is hosted independently from other primary banking channels
  • Offers an alternative method to instruct urgent/high-value payments should you be unable to access your primary Electronic Banking application for any reason
  • You can register Barclays and non-Barclays accounts providing multi-bank contingency
  • Advanced security through use of SWIFT 3SKey personal digital identity tokens in combination with one time passcodes sent via SMS text.

How it can help you

  • Initiate urgent payments from both Barclays and non-Barclays accounts (providing a bi-lateral agreement is held with the non-Barclays Bank)
  • Dual authorisation available for both payments and administration to ensure a safe and secure contingency payment option
  • 3SKey is a security solution that helps to mitigate the risk of fraud by preventing unauthorised access and payment authorisation
  • Control user access through role entitlements and payment limits
  • Simple and easy-to-use service with ongoing support.
