Pingit is a simple and quick way to pay your credit card bill that’s totally hassle-free. Here’s the lowdown on the app, how to use it and what it can do for you.
Free, secure and easy to use
Pingit is an easy way to pay your Barclaycard bill from your smartphone. It's a safe and easy way to pay your bill and you don't have to be a Barclays customer to use it. Just download the Pingit app and scan the QR code on your bill.
Pingit is an app designed to be used on most smartphones, including those running on iPhones and on Android. It offers mobile payments by connecting your mobile phone number to a UK bank account.
As well as paying your credit card bill, you can send payments to anyone: friends, family, businesses, and tradespeople. You can pay instantly if they are registered with either Pingit or Paym and you can also pay people who aren’t signed up for these services. Just create the payment and the person you want to pay will receive a text message alert providing details of how they can collect their money.
The really great news is you don’t have to remember lengthy account numbers or sort codes, just send the payment from one mobile to another. It’s quick and easy.
Credit card bill payment
You can pay your Barclaycard bill in a number of different ways, by setting up a direct debit payment, for example, or logging in to Barclaycard online and clicking the ‘Pay your bill’ tab.
Pingit provides an easy way to reduce admin and strips out the need to remember numbers or even retrieve your payment card. Everything you need is right there on your smartphone.
How to pay a credit card bill
Paying your Barclaycard bill is easy with the Pingit app. Just open the app, tap on ”Scan a QR code” and scan the code that’s featured on your bill statement. The QR code contains all your unique information and it’s all you need to make the payment.
When you scan the code, this information is filled in securely without you having to do anything more. It will display instantly on your phone screen. Now all you need to do is enter the amount you want to pay (if this is less than the total bill) and tap the ‘confirm’ button to make the payment.
It’s important to note that the minimum you can pay is £1, up to a maximum figure of £15,000.
Funds are sent by the Faster Payments Services and will be deducted from your balance on the same working day if received before 23:45.
Just so you know, Barclaycard systems update overnight, so the payment won’t be visible until the next working day.
To download Pingit you need to have a UK current account and UK-registered mobile number and smartphone. The app works with Android 4.4 and above or iOS 9.3 and above.
