Android Contactless Mobile
Turn your Android mobile into a contactless way to pay
The Barclaycard app is designed to make your life easier by packing the features of your Barclaycard into your phone. And now you can turn any compatible Android handset into not only a new contactless way to pay but also an instant replacement Contactless Mobile card if your Barclaycard goes missing. Contactless Mobile is only available for eligible Visa cards.
You have to be registered for the Barclaycard app to use these features.
If you’re already registered, just make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version of the app then log in and follow the instructions on the right to get set up. There’s even a short tutorial showing you exactly what to do.
If you’re not registered for the Barclaycard app it’s free to download from Google Play.
Set up Android Contactless Mobile
- Unlock the app
- Head to Pay options
- Tap Contactless mobile
- Turn on your card to start making contactless mobile payments
Lost your card?
No worries. If your card goes missing we can download an instant replacement Contactless Mobile card to the app. Just call us. or get in touch via the app and whilst you’re waiting for your new card in the post, you can still continue to pay the contactless way on your mobile.
Once you’ve set up Android Contactless Mobile, wherever you see this little symbol you can use your mobile to pay the fast, easy and secure way. The current contactless limit is £100 but at some retailers you can use Android Contactless Mobile to pay up to £300 by entering your PIN (the one you use with your card).
Is your phone compatible?
To take advantage of these handy features with the app, your Android mobile has to be NFC capable and using an operating system of KitKat 5.0 or above.
You’ll need to have downloaded the latest version of the Barclaycard app and also have an eligible Visa card but sorry, IHG cards are currently excluded.
If Contactless Mobile doesn’t appear in your menu even though you have an eligible Visa card and you’ve updated to the latest version of the app, it means your handset isn’t compatible.
