In some circumstances this is possible. Please contact us to discuss.

If the ‘status’ of the agreement on the application system has not yet changed to  ‘live’ – if it has a status of ‘accepted’, ‘parked’ or ‘snagged’ – then you can cancel the application by calling our Client Services Helpdesk on 0844 811 7740.
 
Once cancelled in this way, the application will then show a status of ‘not taken up’.

If the application has already gone ‘live’ but you have agreed to cancel the customers purchase and/or finance, then please send the cancellation request via email to OperationsCancellations@barclayscorp.com
 
Please include the account number and customer name in any correspondence.

For many of our Retail Partners, we have agreed to only accept email cancellation requests from a designated contact (often someone at head office).
If you are unsure if this is the case for your business, please contact your head office or your Sales Manager for guidance.

This refers to the right to withdraw from the credit agreement, not the purchase of the product. The customer should therefore be directed to our Customer Services team where the request for withdrawal will be processed.

Please refer to your 'point of sale' system guide for advice on how to return to an agreement to complete it or in the case of a 'newly created' status use the search function to pinpoint your agreement and proceed from there. If you have any queries please contact us on 0844 811 7740*.

digi-sig is a new way for customers to sign their credit agreement. The application is made through our usual point of sale system but rather than sign printed paperwork with a pen the customer can sign a tablet screen. No paperwork or printing is required and signed documents are securely sent to us instantly. The customer receives a full copy of their agreement via email.
