Terms and Conditions for Pingit Giving
1.1Pingit Giving is provided by Barclays Bank UK PLC (Barclays/We/Us/Our). It lets you use a UK debit card to send money to a registered charity selected by the person who has sent you a Pingit Giving link. You don't need to have a Pingit account to use it.
1.2Start by making sure you know the person who sent you the link – the page will give you their name and the details of the registered charity to which you are donating. We can't accept responsibility if you a pay the incorrect charity, pay a charity via a link sent from somebody you do not know or make a payment to a fraudulent site purporting to be a Pingit Giving page.
1.3To make the payment, just open the link and follow the instructions. You'll be asked to enter your debit card details and home address so that we can check that you're the cardholder, then the amount you want to send. Pingit Giving will never ask you for your debit card PIN number or any passwords. Help us prevent others from doing this by sending any link you get that asks for this information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
1.4Once the payment has been sent, you'll get an email and the person who sent you the Pingit Giving link will get a notification (if they have opted to do so) showing that a donation has been made. Usually your payment will get to the charity you're paying pretty much straight away, but it could take up to 2 hours.
1.5We will charge the charity a small fee for each donation made using this service.
1.6Sometimes Pingit Giving pages get deactivated. You can only use a Pingit Giving link to make a payment if the page you're using to pay a charity is active.
1.7There are limits to what you can send – please refer to our FAQ page for further information.
1.8Any questions? We'd love to hear from you – get in touch on 0345 600 2323.
1.9When you ask us to make a payment to a charity using Pingit Giving, we may ask you if you want to add Gift Aid to your donation through accepting a Gift Aid declaration. If you accept this declaration, you are giving your consent for us to send to the charity certain personal information we hold about you, including your mobile number or email address, name and address. We will share this information with the charity on the basis they will only use it to collect the Gift Aid payment or contact you to administer the payment. By accepting the Gift Aid declaration, you are confirming that if you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax in the current year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all donations it will be your responsibility to pay any difference to HMRC. Please read the Gift Aid declaration in full.
1.10You can find out more information about any charity listed in the Pingit Giving page (including the charity's registration details) by visiting the charity's website.
