Take a Chip and PIN payment with Barclaycard Anywhere

Take a Chip and PIN payment with Barclaycard Anywhere

With Chip and PIN there is no need to handle your customer’s payment card. Your customer simply puts the card in, keys in the PIN, removes the card and it’s done!

Remember, you won’t be able to use Barclaycard Anywhere unless your phone or tablet is connected to wi-fi or a mobile data connection – ie GPRS/3G/4G.

1. Log in


Log in to the app using your username (email) and password.
