If I apply for a Barclaycard online, when will I hear whether I have been successful?

For most applications we are able to confirm whether you have been successful almost instantly. There are times however when we need a bit more time to access the required information or further information from you to be able to make a decision. If this is the case you'll either receive a letter in the post within approximately 7-14 days detailing what we need you to provide to progress your application or a letter informing you that you have been unsuccessful at this time.

If you have not been accepted for the Barclaycard you applied for, we might offer you an alternative product.  If this is the case, we'll send you the details of the Barclaycard offered, the terms and conditions and a pre-filled application form for you to sign and return to us.  Once we have received the documentation, your Barclaycard will be sent to you in the post within 7 - 14 days, there is no need to call us.
