  • Chargebacks – disputing a transaction

    What’s a chargeback and what does it cover?

    If you recognise a transaction but want to dispute it, you'll find everything you need to know here. There is some useful information below that might help you solve the problem quickly and indicate what information you will need to have ready when you contact us. If you do not recognise a transaction and you suspect fraudulent activity on your account, please get in touch with our Fraud team straight away on 0800 015 9059.

    Chargeback is a type of protection for customers – if you buy an item or service with your Barclaycard and it’s delivered damaged, doesn’t arrive, or you’re charged the wrong amount, you can ask us to reverse the transaction.

    A chargeback is different to Section 75  which is a legal requirement – chargeback is part of the card scheme that major card providers like Visa and Mastercard sign up to.

    To be eligible, you will usually need to let us know within 120 days if there’s a problem with your transaction.

    What does it cover?

    • Purchases you bought with your Barclaycard
    • Purchases or Services you never received
    • Items delivered damaged or not as described
    • Goods that don’t arrive because the company has gone into administration
    • When you’re charged the wrong amount for an item

    Things to check before submitting a claim

    Have you contacted the retailer?

    Before contacting us if you can identify the business, company or person behind the charge, approach them first. This will give them the chance to resolve the dispute for you. In many cases the retailer can resolve your issue much faster than we can. However, if your attempts have been unsuccessful, please keep a note of any contact (or attempted contact) you made, and what happened. You will need to give us these details to help your claim.

    If there is something on your statement you don’t recognise, there are a few things you can do to try and help you identify the transaction. You could try using a search engine to see if any more information is available about the merchant as the registered business location may be different to where the payment was made. Also is anyone else in the company authorised to use this card who may have made the transaction?

    Has the money left your account?

    In order for us to help, most transactions have to be fully processed and no longer pending in order for us to dispute them.

    When did the transaction take place?

    We can help investigate transactions that took place in the last 120 days. In some cases, we can look into older transactions.

    What happens once a dispute is raised? 

    We may contact you if we need to know more about your dispute. We'll do this as fast as we can, but industry rules mean the merchant has up to 45 days to respond to our request.

    We may need to ask you for some more information based on the retailer's response. This could include:

    • evidence of your attempts to cancel the transaction or return the goods
    • a receipt or invoice
    • the retailer's terms and conditions
    • evidence of the retailer’s rejection of your dispute

    While we’re looking into it, we will pause any interest or fees on the transaction and won’t include it in your monthly payment amount. If your dispute isn’t successful, we’ll add the transaction amount back to your account.

    How to dispute a transaction

    Call Customer Services on 0800 008 008 and we’ll do our best to help. We're open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week or alternatively use the web form and our disputes team will be in touch.

  • Reporting a lost or stolen card

    If you've misplaced your card or think it’s been stolen, please contact us by filling in our contact form.

  • How to appeal against your lending decision

    The appeals process

    Our Business Card appeals process enables you to appeal against a lending decision if you've been declined or aren't completely satisfied with the terms of our offer.

    Informing you about this process is part of our commitment to supporting you and your business. The process is monitored by an independent, external auditor to ensure that it's fair and effective.

    When can I appeal?

    You can appeal if your application was declined and:

    The turnover for your business is under £25 million (if it’s part of a group of companies, this applies to the full group)

    Your lending application was declined in the past 30 days

    You provided all the required information on the Application Form

    You have not previously appealed this decision

    Your existing lending isn’t subject to formal demand or enforcement or legal proceedings

    Your application doesn’t breach UK law and regulations, doesn’t involve cross-border transactions in countries subject to UN sanctions, and isn’t linked to a product that may be used to evade tax

    You can also appeal if your application was approved but you’re not satisfied with the limit of credit granted. This excludes the costs of borrowing, agreed fees and standard terms we apply to the Business Card facility.

    How do I appeal?

    Appeals need to be made within 30 days of the original decision about your Application. Make sure you outline your reason for appealing and include any additional information to support your case.

    Please submit your appeal in writing to Department MRM6, Barclaycard Commercial, 1234 Pavilion Drive, Northampton, NN4 75G

    Who reviews my appeal?

    Your appeal will be reviewed by an experienced lending specialist within Barclaycard who was not involved in the original decline decision to make sure the appeal is handled objectively and fairly.

    How long does it take to get a decision?

    We’ll respond within 30 days of your appeal with written notification.

    What can I do if I’ve already appealed unsuccessfully?

    If you’ve appealed a decision unsuccessfully, you have the right to make a formal complaint to us.

    We take our role as responsible lenders very seriously and are committed to working with you to find other sources of funding. This includes a wide range of free support services to help you make the most of your existing resources.

    Alternative sources of finance

    Although Barclaycard Business may be unable to support your borrowing request at this time, there are alternative sources available to small and medium businesses.
    You may want to consider approaching a local Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), which can be contacted at
    Other options include finding a business mentor to provide support and guidance at  and general advice at Better Business Finance.

  • Compare the cost of spending abroad

    To help you understand the costs of using your card abroad, we’ve put together comparison tables of our current exchange rates for certain currencies based on whether you're a small business customer or a corporate customer. These are a mark-up against the rate published by the European Central Bank at the time you check. It might take a day or two for your payment to be processed, the rate shown and the rate you are charged might be different. However, we don't expect the difference to be significant.

    The Visa rate is updated daily at approx. 10.10pm.
    The European Central Bank’s rate is updated daily at approx. 3.10pm.
    The Mastercard rate is updated daily at approx. 8.10pm.

  • How to set up a Direct Debit

    A Direct Debit is the simplest way to manage your payments and pay your bill on time every month.

    The quickest way to set up your Direct Debit is in Barclaycard business online servicing. Once you’ve logged in, just go to ‘Payments’ in the top menu and select ‘Direct Debit’.
