A major reservation with Barclaycard Anywhere is that the app has actually got worse. It hasn’t been updated since the mid-2018 – 4 years ago – which is very bad and risky for businesses in need of a reliable payment service.
In 2015, the app could help you manage your business – including support for sales functions, stock monitoring, customer data and payment history.
However, the current app version is mainly just able to receive simple payments. There are no other point of sale (POS) functions and no product library. You have to add the name of the product/service and the amount to create a sale, and only an electronic receipt can be sent, not printed. Refunds can also be made.
But the last update did add a repeat payments function meant for charity contributions, which is not a given in this type of product. And there’s a web portal where you can export sales to Excel for accounting purposes and add multiple users.
From what we’ve seen in the past, the lack of investment in app development is unsurprising for a bank that does not specialise in mobile applications.
