We first entered the South African market in 2005 when Barclays bought the majority stake in Absa Group Ltd, the full service banking group. Since then, we've developed a strong partnership with Absa Card, which is a leading card brand in the country.
If you're a resident or moving to South Africa, we offer financial products that could meet your needs and those of your business, if you have one.
We offer a range of credit and debit cards for personal use, and commercial cards and payment acceptance solutions for businesses, under the Absa and Barclaycard brands. As well as flexibility and security, all our cardholders have the added convenience of mobile and online banking services.
If you're looking for an easy, flexible way to pay, we have several credit, debit and cheque cards to apply for.
Using our commercial cards helps you monitor how much your company is spending, while reducing administration. Our Corporate and Travel Lodge Cards are great for travel and general expenses, while Purchasing and Distribution Cards are ideal for more specific procurement needs.
We also offer innovative point-of-sale equipment for accepting credit and debit cards in person, and e-commerce solutions for secure online sales. Payments can even be taken on the move with our Mobile Pay Express technology. With it, you can accept credit cards on cell phones, landlines and any computer with internet access.
