Barclaycard has announced the launch of its new fresh new look UK website.

The new Barclaycard website www.barclaycard.co.uk offers a new selection tool for credit cards which is intended to make choosing the right product easier and has advice on using credit and borrowing responsibly.

The updated website will continue to be home to all of Barclaycard’s current products including Barclaycard Simplicity, one of the UK’s lowest rate credit cards at 6.8% APR, Barclaycard Platinum cash-back credit card which gives customers two per cent cash-back on all supermarket and petrol purchases and 0.5 percent on all other spending*, and Barclaycard OnePulse, the UK’s first contactless credit card which was first made available this autumn.

Commenting on the new site Joan Mattocks, Barclaycard’s Head of Internet Services said, "We’ve got a great range of products at Barclaycard and it’s important that the online experience customers have is also best in class."

Over half of Barclaycard’s applications in the UK come through the website with other applications coming from direct sales and other channels.

In 1995, Barclaycard was the first credit card company on the Web and in 1998 became the first credit card company to accept payments over the Internet.
