The payment functionality is powered by bPay. If you're new to bPay, you'll need to register for a bPay account and link your new device. You can do this on our website or by downloading the bPay app.

If you've already got a bPay account, you can add an additional device to your account online or in the bPay app.
No. You don't need to have a Barclaycard or Barclays bank account. You can add money to a bPay account using any MasterCard or Visa debit or credit card, registered to a UK address.

With the delivery of the DS 3 Connected Chic vehicle you will receive a welcome pack which will include instructions on how to add money to the contactless key.

First, you'll need to activate the contactless key via the bPay app or website. Once you've activated the device you can top it up.

Now you can enjoy fast, simple and secure payments wherever you see the contactless symbol.
The maximum balance you can have on your bPay account is £200. If you make a purchase, the amount will be taken from the available balance on your bPay wallet immediately, or if it is a Transport for London transaction, at the end of the working day.
If you sell your car, please ensure you close your bPay account to ensure that the person purchasing your car cannot use it. You can do this using the lost and stolen option by logging into your account online or via the bPay app.

We will then block your contactless payment method. If you wish to continue using bPay please go to your local dealer to have your chip removed from the key so you can keep it.
