Pingit is a super speedy and secure way to send and receive money.

You can pay by phone using the app and you don’t need to bank with us to use it. It’s also free for personal use, whether you’re making or receiving mobile payments. To use this money transfer app, you just need to be over 16, have a current account with any UK bank and a mobile phone that’s registered in the UK, Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man.

How does it work?

The Pingit payment app links your phone number to your bank account, making it quick and easy to pay by mobile. It’s as simple as texting – just find a contact in your address book, enter the amount and send money to them straightaway. You can also use it to make in-store payments and request money from friends – it acts as a bill-splitting app, making settling group payments simple.

Introduce your friends to Pingit and get £5 for each person that downloads the app and makes a mobile payment. You’ll find the T&Cs for the Pingit introduce a friend offer here.

If you’ve got a Barclays Business current account and a UK mobile number, you can use Pingit to make and receive instant payments – and you can send and manage your invoices for free

When you split a bill and request money from friends, you can now enter how much you owe too. You can also send an emoji when you pay someone

And remember, you don’t need to bank with Barclays to use Pingit.

Makes you download the app to receive money now!!!

I have been using this app for years and had a family member use it to send me money regularly, today I have been sent a link saying I need to download the app and register to receive this money!! This is unacceptable, for years I have never needed the app to receive money! Very disappointed and confused!!!

Hi Katherine, thanks for reaching out to us. I'm afraid I'm not 100% sure what you mean, just with you saying you've used it for years and then never needed it? Can you explain the problem in a little more detail for me please? I'd like to help. -Amiee

Log out when using Face ID is rubbish

If you use Face ID to access the app and log out it automatically logs you back in if you are looking at your phone. This is very poor you need to insert a pause or button to click to log back in rather than letting Face ID auto log you back in. Easily fixed if you give it some thought. The Barclays Bank app is the same. Good with other stuff but this element is rubbish.

Hey there, thanks for your feedback; I really appreciate it. I'm aware the Face ID feature logs you back in after log-out and I'll pass this over to our developers for you. -Amiee
