What’s a Pingit account, and how do I top it up?

If you don’t bank with Barclays, we’ll set up a Pingit account when you register. The Pingit account links your phone to your current account – you can transfer money into it from your current account and then use it to send payments to other UK accounts using your phone's contacts.

Any Pingit payment sent to you will be paid into your Pingit account, and you can transfer the money to your current account whenever you like.

Topping up your Pingit Account

You can top up by transferring money from your linked current account, or from your debit card. You can register your debit card securely in the app, so you can top up whenever your Pingit account runs low.

You can also top up at a Barclays cash machine using the debit card from your linked account.
