To set up and start using Contactless Mobile, you’ll need the latest version of the Barclays Mobile Banking app installed on your phone. If you have an eligible card and compatible device, Contactless Mobile will appear automatically on the app menu.
- Log in to Barclays Mobile Banking and tap ‘Contactless Mobile’ in the menu
- Select the card you want to use when you pay with your phone
- Ensure NFC is enabled on your phone
- Set Barclays Mobile Banking as your default ‘Tap and Pay’ application
Once you’re set up, a permanent notification will show on your lock screen. This serves as a reminder that Contactless Mobile is enabled. You can hide lock screen notifications if you want to.
If you already use the myBarclaycard app but would like to make Contactless Mobile payments with your debit card too, you can do that in the Barclays Mobile Banking app. There, you have the option of switching between your debit card and Barclaycard.
When you set this up, you’ll be asked to set Contactless Mobile in Barclays Mobile Banking as your default ‘Tap & Pay’ option on your phone. If you want to move back to the myBarclaycard app, you’ll need to change this back too.
