The Recording Studio
Owner of a recording studio
Business name: 22 Studios
Owner: Dan Masters
Location: Leighton Buzzard, Hertfordshire
How did Barclays Pingit help Dan?
Dan Masters (30) has run his recording studio in Leighton Buzzard for 8 years. His studio offers professional rehearsal space for artists and bands outside London. With over 15 years’ experience in the industry, bands flock to his studio to realise their dreams.
Sometimes band members want to split the cost of using the studio between them. For Dan, this means multiple sets of card payments, all delaying the next in the queue.
Dan realises that not a moment should be wasted when it comes to making dreams a reality, but he also needs to secure his own business. Not wanting to have all the admin work eat into his customers’ precious recording times, Dan has now enlisted the help of Barclays Pingit as his primary method of receiving payments.
With Barclays Pingit , Dan is no longer worried about when he will get paid, his customers can start their sessions on time and he can also either take the money on the spot or when a booking is made over the phone.

The Personal Trainer
Owner of a health and fitness company
Business name: Results: Fitness & Health
Owner: Cecilia Harris
Location: Leigh-on-Sea, Essex
How did Barclays Pingit help Cecilia?
Cecilia Harris (41) and her husband have managed Results: Fitness & Health in Leigh-on-Sea for four years. Every day, they motivate their clients to reach their fitness goals – whether they are training for a half marathon, looking to lose weight or finally ready to realise that life-long ambition of a killer set of abs.
They pride themselves on providing the very best one-to-one personal training services. Cecilia knows that in order for her customers to reach their goals, she needs to give them 100% of her attention and focus. It helps when she is not having to worry about outstanding payments, like the client she needs to chase for last week’s session.
More and more customers have signed up to Barclays Pingit just to pay for their training. This has become extremely useful for when they don’t bring cash because they can simply send Cecilia the money via the app. ’I am always moving from one client to the next, so I can’t afford to chase payments or wait for people to pay me,’ says Cecilia. ’Barclays Pingit is super valuable.’

The Mobile Beautician
Owner of a mobile beauty business
Business name: Bliss Beauty Blackhall
Owner: Rebecca Fraser
How did Barclays Pingit help Rebecca?
Rebecca Fraser (35) has recently started her mobile beauty business, Bliss Beauty Blackhall. Based in Blackhall, Hartlepool, Rebecca is a fully qualified beauty therapist who transforms women into ‘Belles of the ball’, in the comfort of their own homes.
Rebecca is always on the road travelling between clients and working against the clock. ’Being mobile means that I am sometimes carrying a lot of cash with me as I move from one client to the next,’ she says. ‘It’s not safe travelling everywhere with lots of cash on me. ‘I would rather see my hard-earned money go straight into my secure bank account.’ Since discovering Barclays Pingit , Rebecca’s payment worries are over. Her customers can pay her straight into her account and she no longer has to feel uncomfortable transporting cash with her all day.
