I received goods that arrived damaged or not as described, what should I do?

If you made the purchase, or even part of it, with your Barclaycard, we've got you covered. We recommend that you start by getting in touch with the company direct. This is likely to be the quickest way to get the resolution you want.

If you've spoken to them and you’re not satisfied, we can help you by logging a dispute. If you can provide evidence of your contact with them and their response, that could help support your claim.

How we protect your money when you raise a dispute

While we deal with your dispute, any fees, interest or charges that have resulted from the transaction will be stopped and refunded, even if it has already debited your account. However, if your dispute is unsuccessful these will be reapplied to your account.

Some companies are taking a bit longer to get back to customers and process refunds at the moment, so please consider this before deciding to raise a dispute. It could slow things down if we process a claim, while the company you made the purchase from, is working on getting the refund to you.

What you'll need

When you make a claim, we may ask you to supply some supporting documents. So, before you contact us, it will help if you have some or all of:

  • Proof of your purchase
  • Terms and conditions for your purchase
  • Evidence that the goods or services were faulty, damaged or different from their description
  • Evidence that the goods or services were not delivered or supplied
  • Details of any descriptions or statements, made by the seller, about the goods or services.

You should also keep the item itself, in case it needs to be examined or handed to us if your claim is successful. We may also need an independent report to show the nature, impact or cost of the problem.

Claim online

Our online form is the fastest way to make a claim. We'll explain what we need at every step and you'll be able to upload photos or digital copies of any supporting evidence we need.

We're receiving lots of cases at the moment, which means, it’ll take us longer than normal to get to yours, so please bear with us. We're working as fast as we can, and we'll keep you informed at every step of the way, normally via SMS and Email.
