Barclaycard, part of Barclays Bank PLC, is a leading global payment business that helps consumers, retailers and businesses to make and take payments flexibly, and to access short-term credit and point of sale finance.
The company is a pioneer of new forms of payments and is at the forefront of developing viable contactless and mobile payment schemes for today and cutting edge forms of payment for the future. Barclaycard also partners with a wide range of organisations across the globe to offer their customers or members payment options and credit.
In 1966, Barclays saw a need to make it easier for people to do business – for customers to buy and shopkeepers to sell. In response, they created a new company called Barclaycard. Barclaycard would be open to everyone – not just Barclays clients – and would make payments faster, more convenient, and more secure than using cash or cheques.
And since we opened our doors for business, much has changed. The world we live in has constantly evolved, fuelled by the possibilities of the digital age. And Barclaycard have evolved with it.See more
