urrr no

This should surely be free - it's a way of making you pay with your Barclaycard more easily and more often. Nobody would pay for a physical debit or credit card.

No thanks

I'm not paying for something that encourages me to spend money

They sent me one of the stickers for the back of my phone years ago. Tried it once and it wouldn't work. It stayed on the old phone when I updated.

In my experience, useless tech and previously free.

my firewall states this product has been promoted through spam techniques. I really would not be willing to pay for a product like this.

I got similar ones (sticker) free from Barclaycard over the last few years. I have never tried them but why have they started charging for them now?!

these will be free when nobody buys one.
25 quid for a wristband that serves one pretty useless purpose. 15 quid for a sticker! come on Barclays!
someone's got this one drastically wrong in the Barclays marketing dept. probably a 60 year old on 150k a year who thinks that youngsters will buy anything these days however much.

Imagine putting the sticker on your phone and someone steals it, no security

Shocked that they are charging for this.

I thought the stickers are free... My last 2 BC have both come with the sticker...Luckily I wasn't mugged and retained both my phone and sticker. (although they may be free with some cards not all)
I would be more than a little suspicious of validity...
Nice try OP, no cigar from me

That's why I don't use a contactless card. If you lose your card you have the hassle of getting in touch with the bank and trying to convince them that it was not you who used the card. I know the transactions are limited to the amount and the number of transactions before it asks for a pin, but for me it's not worth the effort

Barclays are currently on a "sod the customer" road anyway. Have you tried going into one of their branches lately? Want to see a teller? You're told to use the machines. Complain? You're told they don't care and if you don't like it, use another bank.

Obviously the new leadership feels that cost cutting is more important than keeping customers. In the end it's just proof that the banks no longer make their money from customers, nowadays the vast majority comes from "investment" (read "gambling with other people's money").

Apple pay is going to be here in about a week, on the 14th for those that have an iPhone 6/6 plus or the watch. That has fingerprint security.

Just to clarify what these are as there is a lot of mis-information on here:

This is sold by Barclays but is effectively a contactless wallet that can be 'fed' from most UK credit / debit cards (not just Barclays accounts). It could be good at festivals, or for children where you want to control spending / an funds when required. Or if you opt for the sticker on your phone you can make purchases if you leave your purse / wallet at home but pick up your phone

You can check transactions via the app, add funds via the app and 'stop' a lost / stolen device via the app

I think previous stickers were just linked to your Barclaycard whereas these are different as they are a mobile wallet

Hope that helps clarify what these are

I agree. My friend boasts about how he can pay contactless without having to put the card in, but complained recently when there were fraudulent activities detected where purchases was made without his consent. You’re more vulnerable; and another means hackers will exploit.

and you are completely covered by your bank for any fraudulent transactions carried out through contactless without question

also £500+ for an iPhone 6 or £12.50 for a bpay band mmmm

now I agree to some extent that paying for this tech is pointless given it serves no purpose other than allowing you to do what a bank card already does however if its a choice between apples ridiculous pricing and locked down OS or android, open source and a bpay band I think you would find I still have change of my £500 notes but hey you go ahead and use apple pay

Android from my experience have still to implement this fully and I find it's a bag of fragment at the moment. Yes, it's been available but I am yet to find a working solution in the UK. EE have their wallet app but you have to go through topping up as far as I'm aware, Samsung have theirs but again it's the implementation.

Your statement of "ridiculous pricing" I don't think can apply directly to Apple anymore. Look at Samsung

agreed that the sammy s6 is nonsense as well with its price, Im just making a point that people vote this cold simply because its a payment method which you pay for but barclays have to make something back on the production costs of these.

Or people vote cold because they have an apple phone which they forget cost them £500 + for the Iphone 6 to use apple pay.

Some of us who have common sense would have a reasonably good phone and could actually make use of the bpay stuff. Think about a cyclist or runner who could wear the band rather than carry a wallet etc it is genuinely useful.

As much as I completely object to the pricing of apple stuff I agree android manufacturers are just as bad but you have options eg one plus etc which are more suitably priced.

I do believe digital wallets are the future and I applaud apple for brining it to the UK but dont vote a deal like this down based on the fact you own an Iphone for apple pay.

Same as you i've had one of these contactless stickers now for over 2 years. Lol Barclaycard gave me one as a trail, most likely because i spend to much money. I removed the back of my phone case and inserted it on the battery no one even knows its there.

Totally agree with this, had to pay some money in my local city centre branch last Tuesday. They have 4 machines that you are supposed to use for cash out and paying in. Great, except 3 were off. So you had to go to counter to pay in. They have 12 counter positions, 2 had staff on, and there were over 40 people in the queue. I asked were they putting more cashiers on, no sorry, all the staff were busy, yes, I counted 10 staff on the bank floor walking around asking if they could help anyone, if they were interested in switching their mortgages to them or applying for a Barclaycard, that type of thing. Complete joke.

I have the bPay band which I got for free when they first came out. great piece of kit just like a watch you can buy stuff with. Sounds like you guys dont like the idea of it but each to their own. I wouldnt however pay for it, thats just wrong, especially when you could get it for free, I registered after reading about it in the freebies section on HUKD!

Same here have a free one and will use it as I did my last one. I have found it great and quicker than cash. Totally secure as people would find out if they used one and the software that you download. Why do people put things down before they know what they are talking about, too much miss information on the web about bpay. If you don't know how they work keep quite. Also you don't need a Barclays account I link mine to my Santander account and move money when I need to it is a virtual wallet, and it's more secure than my real wallet...
