How long do payments from my account take to clear?
Payments can take different times to clear, depending on the account they’re going to:
- Payments to other Barclays accounts – the money will normally arrive immediately
- Payments to Barclaycard – the funds will normally arrive on the same day but will show on your statement the next working day
- Payments to other banks – the money will normally arrive on the same day as part of the Faster Payments service. However, some organisations may take longer to credit their customers’ accounts and there are also transaction limits. If your payment is greater than the limit, it will take longer to arrive.
Please note that these times are not guaranteed. If you want to guarantee the same-day transfer of funds to another bank account, you’ll need to request a CHAPs payment. There is a £25 fee to do this if you’re a Personal Banking customer.
