This was briefly discussed on this thread:
I have the followign additional questions which the above post does not point to:
How do we get the account number for the credit card?
Barclays credit card has its own log in via Barclaycard.co.uk (not same as Barclays.co.uk for business bank personal accounts).
However Barclay credit card can be added to the Barclays online banking app, and when logging into the app i can see the credit card transactions but not the account number.
So the question is - can i use Barclays business/personal bank account login for automatic bank feeds for the credit card if i had the account number for the credit card?
we don’t’ know the account number for the credit card.
This is for a client, so i will need to guide them on this. ( i could try with my own Barclays credit card - its a personal one rather then business but i its still good enough for testing).
So the main problem is what account number to use.
Some websites mention that after the first 6 digits on the credit card , the next 8 are for account number - is this valid
I think this is the first “Barclaycard Feed” post. I will convert this to the official Barclaycard feature request for now.
I can’t promise much here, creating feeds is very complex and time consuming. We need to maintain live accounts with all the different banks for testing/maintenance purposes, when these banks change their format just slightly we need to constantly rebuild things.
The biggest issue with bank feeds is the banks themselves - changes to their interface can break the feeds.
Barclay’s is currently the only bank we are able to offer automatic imports. HSBC, NatWest, Lloyds, TSB, Co-op etc., aren’t supposed for automatic imports.
However, the Chrome plug in is available, and anyone with the knowledge is welcome to develop a part of it for us to include (as they’ve done in the past). @Glenn can probably comment on this more as he knows a bit more about it than I do.
If we were to extend bank feeds it would make sense for us to take this on in order of popularity. The only exception to this would be if any bank provide an open API, we would then prioritise this over other factors.
Just want to say that Barclays are in the process of migrating all corporate credit cards from Visa to Mastercard. As a part of this process they intend to, at some point in the future, integrate the card with the online banking facility, I hope at that point it will be accessible via the same feed, or at least access very easily implemented through it.
