Let the experts at Barclays make getting a credit card a simple solution to your credit needs
Getting a credit card is easier than ever.
We provide straightforward and simple processes, to make this often challenging and life changing event, a smooth one.
With less hassles, and people there to support you, we will help you get your credit card in no time at all. To get your credit card application process started, clients can simply visit one of our branches, which are conveniently located in every town in the country.
Along with your application, you will need to submit supporting documentation including:
- A valid ID document (clients need to be permanent residents of South Africa). Clients must be over 18 years old to qualify for a credit card
- A recent pay slip
- A letter of employment confirmation from your employer – clients need to be employed at one company for one year at least.
- Clients, who already bank with Barclays, will have quicker access to a credit card solution.
What happens next?
The application form can be retrieved from our website, or can be emailed to you before coming into our branch; this will also speed up the application process. Our contact email address for credit card enquiries is [email protected] or simply call 0861 227 25297 and one of our experienced consultants will assist you with your application.
Once we have a completed application form and supporting documentation, we can start to process your credit card request. We will provide you with the credit card and credit amount depending on your income and what you can afford to repay each month.
We will confirm your application approval in writing, via email or telephone, to ensure that you have the communication you need to move forward. A contract and agreement will be drawn up, including the repayment terms (monthly instalments). We are transparent with our credit facilities, so there are no hidden costs involved. A debit order will be set up for your monthly instalments, to create an easy payment on your behalf, and allowing you to budget your finances each month.
