  • Make at least the minimum payment by your payment due date

Direct Debit

Set up a direct debit and your payments will be made automatically – either the minimum payment, a set amount decided by you, or the full balance. To set up a direct debit download the Barclaycard app to your mobile or log into or register for Barclaycard online servicing. You need to be 16 or over to use the app. T&Cs apply.

We’ve created some useful step-by-step guides to help you get started – from registering and logging in, to paying your bill.

Alternatively, you can contact us and ask us to make the change for you.
