Just Pingit!

Barclays have introduced their mobile (smartphone*) money transfer service today – PINGIT.

At the minute it’s restricted to UK Barclays personal account holders and you can only have one account per phone (although this may change down the line we understand). They also inform us that from possibly around the end of the month it should be available to all (non Barclays) UK current account holders.

We’ve just set up the Android app version and its pretty straightforward – standard verification code exchange and then– PINSentry account verification is one of three final security options.

Initially to send to a non Barclays account just send contact details ie FULL name (NOT a nickname) and mobile number to Pingit and the amount involved. Pingit then text the recipient advising how to register (if they haven’t already done so).

Friendly Helpdesk at 03332001012 but its getting a bit busy!

Transfer limits per day are sending £300 receiving £5,000.

So off you all go then! Just Pingit!

*Android 2.2 and above, iOS 4.2 and above and BlackBerry OS 4.6 and above
