Barclays launches digital receipts with Flux
Customers will be able to get digital receipts when they buy in-store at global fashion brand H&M, as well as Just Eat, Papa Johns & Schuh with more retailers to follow.
Barclays has become the first UK high street bank to embrace digital receipts following a partnership with fintech start-up Flux.
The bank’s 24 million customers using their Barclays debit card at the likes of H&M, Schuh, Just Eat and Papa Johns, will see their receipts sent automatically to their app after making a purchase.
Barclays first announced a partnership with Flux back in 2017 that saw it run a 10,000 person trial and then took a minority stake in Flux through an extension of the fintech’s $7.5m Series A in January 2020.
Ruchir Rodrigues, Global Head of Digital & Platforms at Barclays says the pandemic has prompted consumers to want things with a lower environmental impact as well as contactless payments.
“The introduction of the digital receipts feature in the Barclays app gives customers a way to conveniently get an itemised receipt of their purchase straight into their app, offering them greater control and ease when managing their money,” he said.
Receipts are stored with the corresponding transaction, so customers can easily access and keep track of their spending.
