Ratings and Reviews
Requires developer work
The app worked very well in the past and I had no issues. I have not used it for a while 12+months and when opened it today was told I had no connection to to check my connection and signal strength.
I checked mobile data was on for the app, and Wi-Fi was also on. I turned off Wi-Fi as well as trying other apps to connect to the internet without problem. (The app seemed to set up without issue from my banking app and change phones without problem).
It also lists in my contacts the person I am sending to has a Pingit account (I assume by the “P” next to her name.) Yet now tells me she doesn’t have an account when click her name. (I have sent payments to her previously via pingit).
I never had any issues when using it in he past, yet I have given the current version up as a bad job, although I am sure it will be easily fixed.

Hi there, thanks for review. It's a bit strange that you aren't able to connect when you can do so with other apps, I want to get this sorted for you. Could you go into your settings and find the app in your list and afterwards when you select the app, ensure mobile data is allowed whilst using the app please? In regards to your friend, have you confirmed with her if she still have a Pingit account open? The reason I ask is because if her Pingit account has been closed you wouldn't be able to send her anymore payments I'm afraid. -Dylan
Use of Pingit
I have used the pingit service again today. I live in Spain and I find it very easy to use and the money is normally in my account by the following afternoon. The only comment I would make is on the exchange rate. You say no charge but you are taking a fee with the rate you give. However, all other banks charge a fee for sending money abroad so I have to make an allowance for that. I realise that you have to make money on these services but as a retired person, and making very little on my savings, every cost has to be considered. Apart from this, I am happy with the service.
Doesn't support older iOS versions
I was transferred to this app after bPay was closed. I would t be bothering with it if it wasn't for the simple band that I can give to my mother to shop. The app requires the latest iOS version (13.1.2 at the moment) and I don't want to upgrade to it as I don't like the newer looks. When I tried logging in I couldn't as the error message just said Upgrade to latest version - no clue whether that's latest app or latest iOS. Almost no online help, FAQ section has just a few basic items. I emailed them, after 4 or 5 days got a reply telling me I had to call them. I did and was told I needed the latest iOS. If I want to close my account I have to apparently go to Barclays branch. The whole set up process was lengthy and I had to provide all sorts of information including what I work, who I work for and how much I earn. The top up based on balance isn't working and I can only set regular fixed top ups.
On a second thought, I might just give a normal credit card to my mother and forget about this.

Hi there, apologies you're facing issues, I can appreciate you don't like the look however it's important to keep that up to date to make sure your phone is still being kept secure by the OS provider. We are looking to release the Auto Top-Up feature shortly, we’re just ensuring everything is good to go however I don’t have a date of when exactly that will be released at this time, apologies. –Jay
