How do I make a payment to someone I’ve paid before?

There are a number of ways you can make a payment to someone you’ve paid before.

  • Online Banking

    You can easily make payments by going to the top menu on your Online Banking homepage and selecting ‘Pay and transfer’ and then ‘Make a payment’.

    Making a payment is a 3-step process

    1. Enter payment details

    2. Confirm details

    3. Receive receipt

    1. Enter payment details

    Since you've made a payment to this person previously, their details will be on your payee list. So you’ll just need to type a reference. This could be anything that will be helpful for you (and the person you're paying) to identify the payment.

    2. Confirm details

    Please make sure you check the payment details carefully before you confirm the payment.

    3. Receive receipt

    You'll see a screen confirming all the details of your payment, including the expected time it will take to reach the account. You can also download a PDF of the receipt.

  • Barclays app

    Log in to your Barclays app and tap ‘Pay & Transfer’. Tap ‘Pay a recent or new payee’, and select the account you want your payment to come from. Now tap ‘To’ and you’ll see a list of all the payees associated with that account. Tap the person you want to pay, type in the amount and set the payment type as either a one-off or a repeat payment (standing order).

    If you want to set up payment for a specific day, tap the date under ‘One-off payment’ and the app will prompt you to choose a date up to 30 days in the future.

    If you’ve chosen to set up a standing order for this payee using the ‘Repeat payment’ option, the app will ask you to choose how often you want to make the payment and for how long.

    Tap ‘Review payment’ to check and confirm the details.

  • Telephone Banking

    You can make a payment to someone using Telephone Banking (if you’re registered). Make sure to have their sort code and account number to hand when you call.
