A quick, secure and easy way to make payments using only a UK mobile phone number. Use it to pay back friends without withdrawing cash, and to be paid back without sharing your account details. 

Cloud It

A secure place for you to upload, store and manage your important documents. You don’t have to register – it appears automatically in your mobile banking app under ‘Tools’ or ‘Quick Links’.


Pay people and businesses, send money abroad and get paid – all on your mobile. All you need is a UK bank account, a UK-registered mobile phone and to download the Pingit app. It’s free, secure and fast.

Smartphone and cheque

Mobile Cheque Imaging

Pay in Barclays cheques, with a value of £500 of less, through your app – just by taking a picture of it. You can deposit up to 4 cheques per week if you’re an individual, or 20 if you’re a business. You won’t be able to deposit Barclays cheques from closed branches, offshore or the Private Bank.
