Barclays Pingit

With Barclays Pingit, you can send and receive money if you have a UK-registered mobile number. It's free to download, secure , easy to use – and you don't need to bank with us to use it.

If you already use our Barclays Mobile Banking app, and you want to use the same current account and phone number to make payments using Barclays Pingit, just download the Barclays Pingit app and confirm your details to start using the app.

Barclays Pingit lets you:
  • Send money to anyone with a UK-registered mobile number
  • Personalise your payments by adding a picture or message

  • Donate to charities straight from your app, and add Gift Aid if you’re a UK taxpayer
  • Pay for things by scanning a QR or short code
  • Make payments to people in Botswana, Ghana, India, Kenya, Mauritius and Zambia
  • Make payments safely – Barclays Pingit and Barclays Mobile Banking have been awarded the BSI Kitemark for Secure Digital Transactions. The Kitemark signifies that both apps have been independently tested to ensure they protect your financial and personal details
