Barclays adds third party payments to m-banking service

26 January 2010  |  10633 views  |  1 Iphone screen close up

Barclays has upgraded its mobile banking service, adding a feature that lets customers make payments to third parties.

In what the bank claims is a UK first, the addition lets customers pay funds to existing or new beneficiaries that have been set up online.

Launched in May 2009, Barclays m-banking service also lets customers view balances and mini-statements as well as make transfers between their accounts.

The mobile site - which works with Apple, HTC, Nokia, Motorolla, Blackberry and other Internet-enabled mobile phones - receives around a million visits per month.

Sean Gilchrist, digital banking director, Barclays, says: "We are taking the lead in the market with a dedicated mobile phone banking site, which is the most flexible way of evolving services for customers and our mobile service isn't limited to a single mobile device."

Well, Barclays has jumped first...

How long before the rest follow...

There are plenty of established companies, with proven software, offering this capability for the banks to exploit. 

It suprises me just how long it has taken for it to be recognised as valuable to a UK institution.
