I have spent two hours on the phone with Barclays confirming this. Because the mandate of the account stipulates 2 signatories for each payment, they say that makes the account ineligible for Open Banking. Barclays does not make any distinction whatsoever between using Open Banking for transferring account information and using Open Banking for payment processing. Therefore that means that they view any use of Open Banking as potentially being payment processing. For which my account needs 2 signatures. Which they say they cannot guarantee through a third party.
However the only thing I want is to use Open Banking for transferring account information. Which they will not allow.
Therefore, I am unable to use Open Banking. And you now tell me that I am unable to use the Yodlee feed.
So who can actually cut through this? Do you have any way for me to reach someone at Barclays to sort this out? Because after 2 hours all I got was an robotic-like repetition of what my mandate is, and no thinking whatsoever about how to fix this.
Alternatively is there a way you can make an exception in this case for me still to use Yodlee?
