Take a contactless payment with Barclaycard Anywhere

Take a contactless payment with Barclaycard Anywhere

Contactless is the fastest growing way of paying and customers can now use contactless in lots of ways, using a card and other contactless devices.

From time to time, Anywhere will request a PIN or Swipe instead of contactless. This is an added fraud protection measure for multiple or unusual card use.

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.
