Barclaycard credit cards

Barclaycard is a constituent part of the Barclays Retail & Business Banking Group, and was the first credit card to be launched in the United Kingdom. At the time it was a credit card variety in its own right, but now offers cards under the Visa, MasterCard, and American Express platforms.

Their headquarters is in Northampton, but they also have large premises in the middle of London’s banking centre, Canary Wharf. They are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

Their parent bank Barclays has a history dating back to 1690. Barclaycard itself launched in 1966, making them the nation’s first credit card, although both American Express and Diner’s Club had launched charge cards earlier in the decade. They retained a monopoly on UK credit cards for six years, until a consortium of UK banks launched the Access card in 1972.

In 1977 they were one of the founding companies behind Visa. They were responsible for other firsts in 1986, when they opened the first reward scheme attached to a credit card, and in 1997 when they were the first credit card company in the UK to allow bills to be paid over the internet.

In 2011 they were the first company in the European Union to launch contactless cards, making retail payments quicker and easier. As of 2014, they had nearly 11 million customers in the United Kingdom.

Barclaycard offers a wide range of credit cards. The choice of card, along with the credit limit and rate of interest, can depend upon the applicant’s financial status and credit history. Some of their credit cards are designed for balance transfers, while others offer rewards for purchases made on the card.
