“Total rubbish ”

Written on: 15/01/2021 by joClark79 (1 review written)

I’ve not even used this software but after reading the reviews that include being compared to genital warts I felt compelled to leave a review. Barclays have excelled themselves here! I’m actually impressed they’ve managed to anger every user of this software. Congrats… Read Full Review

“Was a decent online service now verging on useless”

Written on: 16/12/2019 by POW7701 (1 review written)

Was a decent online service now verging on useless. It seems most banks have used the same software company - the verification updates that most banks appear to have employed are seriously flakey… Read Full Review

“Swap banks”

“Breathtakingly Bad”

Written on: 09/10/2018 by malc0savs (1 review written)

It fails on every level - every single task is over-complicated and non-intuitive. It looks and feels like software did in the 1990s - except absolutely no pride or effort taken to make it usable. Add to that the fact that it is "flaky" - often down; crashes; logging on succeeds only c60% of the time - I am continually "checking the card reader is attached correctly". It can't be possible that this was developed and delivered in this decade - can it??!! Not a day goes by when it doesn't waste… Read Full Review

“The worst internet banking ever!”

Written on: 27/07/2017 by anEdwards251 (1 review written)

Having had experience of several internet banking platforms, I cannot comprehend why Barclays would present this to their clients as the way forward! I hate with a passion every bit of it - the clunky slowness, the lack of user-friendly design, it's down time - I could go on, and on, and on ...... if you have an option - Bank elsewehere! (Doesn't deserve 1 star)… Read Full Review

“The most user unfriendly package in the history of...”

Written on: 09/06/2017 by JMTCJOHN (1 review written)

How on earth did this product ever get signed off by Barclays IT department and launched on the unsuspecting Barclays commercial customers. It is so unpleasant to operate even though I only make about 4 bank transfers a week I am looking at other banks to spare me from using it (I have been a Barclays customer since 1994 when I opened my business). It is not intuitive, keeps freezing the screen and time consuming. Bring back BIB … Read Full Review

“0 out of 5”

Written on: 07/06/2017 by xxxxnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn (1 review written)

Awful program that takes too long to do the simplest of tasks. A lot of standard options are not available like viewing direct debits. Printing is all wrong, font is tiny and pages don't print correctly. All I can do is repeat what everyone else is saying. Don't use this software unless you are prepared to pull your hair out and spend endless amounts of time doing nothing! And please, please do not make a multi beneficiary payment and then want to change anything once submitted. There is a… Read Full Review

“Barclays.net Is Absolutely Atrocious ”

Written on: 31/05/2017 by clNoble373 (1 review written)

Having been forced over to this "new and improved" online banking, we now struggle to get basic banking tasks done. The new software was designed to be easier, more user friendly and more efficient and while the foundations are there for it to be very good indeed, sadly it is so far away from that it's a shame. There was a huge learning curve when the software first became live and now, 6 months later, it still takes longer to process simple inter-account transfers, view statements, find… Read Full Review

“Hopeless banking software ”

Written on: 25/05/2017 by Whiteheaddl430 (1 review written)

Hopeless clunky software, why did they ever replace business banking which worked fine and how was it ever released to the public ? Worst I have ever used. Tuesday again and for at least the third Tuesday in the last month or so no current day transactions viewable. How hard can it be. Estimated time for rectification is 14.00, how is it acceptable that a business has to wait over half a working day for a repeating issue to be fixed. … Read Full Review

“Barclays forced us too...”

Written on: 23/05/2017 by JCD1963 (1 review written)

Barclays.net is awful, just awful. BIB wasn't the best, but it was a million times better than .net. Business Master (for those of you who are of a certain, may remember) was better... I can usually find my way around a new piece of software, not a chance with this. I have admin rights and wanted to make changes to a couple of profiles. Everything is buried deep beneath the surface, and mega complicated to do. I marvel that the helpdesk bods actually know their way around. We were told… Read Full Review

“Back to the dark ages”

Written on: 05/05/2017 by MirandaWhalen (1 review written)

This software is the worst ever. Think back to the days of dial up internet and dos systems... They were far faster and more user friendly than this software. We have been forced over to this and it is so bad that despite persevering for over a year it is looking like Barclays will be loosing our custom… Read Full Review

“This system could end your business”

Written on: 24/04/2017 by 231Martin (1 review written)

Having been assured by the Barclays business manager that Barclays.net was compatible with mac computers, this is definitely not the case. The sierra operating system has been operational on all new mac computers since 7th September 2016. Barclays.net doesn't operate on this sierra system and having spoken to the tech help at Barclays, they say that they have no idea when or if it will work on sierra. Sierra is the upgrade for all macs, not just new machines, to ensure that security and… Read Full Review

Under Windows it only works on Internet Explorer 32 bit edition. This is unsupported software as Microsoft Edge is now the browser supplied by Microsoft.

I see that you were forced onto Barclays.net in 2017. It has not improved, or if it has then it must have been truly diabolical. I'd give it an "atrocious" rating now.

“DIABOLICAL USELESS CLUNKY !!”

Written on: 18/04/2017 by TaraRoberts77 (1 review written)

We are a small group of companies with straightforward payments - 3 day UK payments usually run weekly. We were FORCED to move to .net from the lovely user friendly BIB to this god awful .net We had quite a few active beneficiaries and lots of old ones but clearly split into beneficiary groups that were validated and not validated. After Barclays screwed up the migration 3 times no less they imported half of the beneficiaries but all mixed up - so old bank details in with current bank… Read Full Review

The above experiences resonate totally with our own. The official explanation for the appalling system which is Barclays.net is that it was set up for companies much larger than our own with many facilities that BIB did not have. Frankly, I can't imagine any 'large company' giving this system the time of day.

“The worst internet banking interface ever”

Written on: 27/01/2017 by AutumnHouse (1 review written)

My work has brought me in contact with multiple corporate and small business internet banking facilities. I loathed Barclays BiB and was hopeful that Barclays.net might be a step into the light. How wrong I was! It's clunky, unwieldy, slow, just horrible. It comes to something when Lloyds small business banking knocks spots off it. Lloyds Corporate also gets my vote. I also use Coutts Online, which is an absolute dream, hand in hand with their customer service. If it was my decision, I would be… Read Full Review

“How not to treat loyal customers”

Written on: 25/01/2017 by 482Prater (1 review written)

We have banked with Barclays for over 10 years and I found BIB very user friendly. Barclays.Net is the complete opposite. The whole process from start to finish has been time consuming and frustrating and I'm afraid this is the final nail in their coffin. I have had numerous issues with them this last couple of years. Getting anything done (from simply collecting cash from the bank to mandate changes) has been so painful that we are in the process of leaving. To really rub salt in the would… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 16/12/2016 by Stuart180 (1 review written)

I cannot disagree with anything said by other reviewers about how poor this software is. It's complex to set up, too easy to delete template groups, it's not intuitive to use, but worst of all is how incredibly slow it is. It smacks of software written by a programmer sitting in a back room who has never consulted or listened to any end users about their experience or requirements. It appears to have been written and set up for the bank and not its customers… Read Full Review

As well as Barclays.net, we also use Barclaycard Commercial which has a newly launched online platform, similarly slow and full of technical problems which are apparently 'known issues'. Perhaps written by the same programmers?

“Appalling!”

Written on: 30/11/2016

The worst piece of banking software I have ever encountered. Completely unusable. I do not normally write reviews but I am so frustrated with using this system I feel I need to vent my anger in the hope that someone will take some notice. BIB was easy to use so expected .net to be equally good. I understand the need for security but Barclays really need to re-instate BIB until they get this mess sorted out. I had to give a star to enable my review to be submitted, against my better judgement! … Read Full Review

Don't hold your breath on them taking any notice. I don't normally write reviews either, but was so frustrated with this "new" system that I did last September. I also contacted our Barclays relationship manager, who seemed completely unaware of any problems with it. I directed him to read the reviews on this site and he said he would pass on my feedback. Never heard another word.
The system is so slow. I also often work at weekends and it is frequently down. Appalling.

“Shambolic piece of banking software”

Written on: 25/11/2016 by Reid120 (1 review written)

We have banked with Barclays for more than 40 years and quite frankly this painful experience with Barclays.Net is making us think seriously about changing banks. How can a simple task of making payments be made into such a complicated process. The closest we came to the way payments were set up in BIB was to try and use the New Payments Form in Barclays.Net . But we were then told our users cannot use this as there is a restriction placed on them in that they can only use validated… Read Full Review

Hi,
We are going through the same pain as you at the moment. Barclays.net system is not fit for purpose and has been designed by somebody who has no experience of using a banking payment system, and no concept absolutely of basic internal controls!! Anyhow, would appreciate a chat for a few mins on the phone if you can spare the time, as seems we are in the same boat!
