How long will the Barclays Pingit payments take?

Payments between UK accounts, whether made using Barclays Pingit or other methods, take different times depending on a number of factors. The times given below are a fair estimate but are not guaranteed.

If the recipient is registered: Payments to other Barclays current accounts will normally go through immediately. Payments to other UK current accounts with Faster Payment Service could be processed within 2 hours but could take up to 24 hours.

If the recipient is not registered: Once you make the payment, the recipient has 24 hours to register for Barclays Pingit. The payment will then be made along the same timescales as above. If they don't register in time, no payment will be taken and your instruction will be cancelled. Please note: Sometimes payments are delayed to allow us to carry out some extra checks in order to help us protect your account from potentially fraudulent activity.
