Features and benefits of your app

Payments icon

Banking in the palm of your hand

Manage all payments and transfers for all of your accounts in one app. You can edit standing orders, Direct Debits and make payments securely. Just select ‘Pay & transfer’ at the bottom of your screen.

Direct debits icon

Make regular payments

Edit standing orders and Direct Debits by selecting ‘Pay & transfer’ at the bottom of your screen.

International payments icon

Send money abroad

Sending money abroad from your Sterling account is easy. Click on the ‘Pay & transfers’ icon, then enter who you want to send money to and when. 


Spend in euros and US dollars

Use your debit card like a multi-currency card abroad by creating a ‘Travel Wallet’ in your app. You’ll lock-in an exchange rate when you credit your wallet and you won’t pay any fees when making purchases or withdrawing cash abroad in the local currency1. There’s no wasted change as you can choose to leave the currency in your Travel Wallet for next time or convert it back to British pounds.

Manage your cards


View your card and PIN number

Forgotten your pin or don't have your debit card on you? No problem. With the Barclays app you can get a quick and secure reminder.

Merchant control icon

Limit your retailers

You can block your card from being used with certain merchants, such as gambling or premium-rate websites and phone lines.

Card freeze icon

Lost your card?

There’s no need to cancel your card, only to find it again. Now you can temporarily freeze your card while you search for it. Click on ‘Quick links’, then ‘Cards’, where you can select ‘Temporary freeze’. If you really have lost it, you can then cancel it in the app.


Travelling abroad

The new travel controls allow you to put restrictions on your account, both home and abroad.

Calendar icon

Manage your money

All of your bills and regular payments are in your app’s calendar. Get an overview of your finances by selecting ‘Manage payments’, and then select ‘Calendar’.
