Barclays bank account holders in the UK can now automatically receive an itemised digital receipt in their banking app every time they use their debit card to make an in-store or online purchase from a retailer or food outlet that has signed up to support the service.
In addition to monitoring their purchases, the service enables customers to generate a barcode to share with a retailer as proof of purchase if they need to return an item to a store.
Customers opt in to the service by selecting a digital receipts option in their app. Those who have not yet done so will receive a prompt each time they make a purchase from a participating merchant.
“We’re adding new [merchants] all the time,” Barclays says.
