what is bPay?

bPay is a contactless payment service that uses a pre-paid account that can be linked to most major credit or debit cards – you don't need to bank with Barclays or have a Barclaycard. There are a wide range of devices and you can get them from the bPay eShop.

bPay could be helpful if you have dexterity problems, sight loss or dyslexia. It works just like a contactless card – just tap your bPay device on the contactless reader to pay for anything £30 and under.

You can also use our mobile app or online account servicing to instantly track your spending. You can also use it to top up your bPay account on the go, so you always have money in your account.

If you get a bPay device and would like your welcome pack and chip ID in braille, large print or audio, please email your full name, phone number and order number to

"My son absolutely LOVES his bPay! His support worker tells me that they engage in chats with people about the technology when out and about so it's serving two purposes really well – enabling transactions and also enhancing social communication opportunities."

Blind Customer
"I just used my wristband for the first time and it left the counter staff stunned and amazed. The ease of use and the simplicity of it. This product will help me no end."
Wheelchair User with Sight Loss
"The fact you can wear it on your wrist and don't have to fumble around in your bag looking for your purse to get out your card made it much easier to use. I will carry on using it especially as I am disabled and have problems with both my hands."
