How do I set a spending limit for debit card payments in my Barclays app?

To help control your spending, use the Barclays app1 to set a limit on how much you can spend in a single card transaction. This spending limit doesn’t affect cash machine withdrawals, refunds, charitable donations or mobile top-ups.

You can set a spending limit in your app – just follow these steps

  • Under ‘Quick links’ on your home screen, tap ‘Cards’
  • Select the debit card you want to set a spending limit on
  • Tap ‘Spending limit’
  • Turn the ‘Spending limit’ switch on
  • Select one of the eight spending values between (£0 and £1,000) – this will be the limit for each transaction
  • Select ‘Save’
