Online payments and fraud protection


We’re making it safer for all our customers to shop online, whether you’re buying office supplies, making travel arrangements or simply paying your regular suppliers.

To make sure you’re protected, we monitor all online transactions, to help identify any suspicious activity. So in the unlikely event that an unauthorised transaction does take place, your business won’t be liable for the cost.

When you shop online, Barclaycard Secure gives you the same level of security as Chip and PIN. So make sure that you buy from participating retailers for extra peace of mind. They will ask for a secure password every time you use your Barclaycard business card online.

Purchase Protection


When you’re a Select or Premium Plus card customer, you know you’re protected when you make a purchase with your card. Any eligible goods over £50 are covered for accidental damage or theft – for the first 90 days which gives you plenty of time to organise extra cover after that.

Your business is covered for up to £10,000. Any single item is covered up to £2,500 (subject to a £50 excess) and you can claim up to £6,000 for a single incident – for each and every card.

Cardholder misuse insurance

If one of your cardholders uses their Select or Premium Plus cards inappropriately, and you can’t get reimbursed, you could be covered for:

  • Up to £15,000 per cardholder
  • Up to £1,000,000 each year for your business

The policy covers permanent and temporary staff, and you can claim for any fraudulent transactions that took place:

  • Up to 75 days before you discovered the fraud
  • 14 days after you notify us
