What’s the Faster Payments Service (FPS)?

The FPS is for sending electronic, sterling payments in the UK.

As long as the receiving bank or building society uses Faster Payments too, and the amount is within the limit, then the payment will arrive almost immediately (though it can take up to 2 hours).

You can make these payments using Online Banking, in your Barclays app, using Telephone Banking, in a branch or at a self-service machine.

To check whether the bank or building society you’re sending money to can receive Faster Payments, use our sort code checker.

We’ll always send your payments through FPS, where possible.
