Do I need a Barclays account to use Pingit?

No, you can use Pingit even if you don't bank with us.

You need to be aged 16 or over and resident in the UK with a UK-registered mobile phone number and UK current account.

We'll set up a Pingit account for you to use, which can be used to send and receive money. In some cases, we might ask you to confirm your identity by visiting a Barclays branch.
